AFL Live Carlton Blues vs Hawthorn Hawks Streaming Free 2017 Regular Seasons Round 22 match will be kick off at Metricon Stadium, Gold Coast, QLD, Australia, Saturday 19 August 2017 online, 19:25 pm (AEDT) and its broadcast on Channel Seven, Foxtell.
Much like what happened in 2016, Carlton’s latter part of the season has seen them fall away after a promising patch in the middle of the year. The Blues have lost eight on the trot, although they have been competitive in a number of those.
They were in front of West Coast in the early parts of the last quarter last weekend before eventually going down by 17 points.
Conversely, Hawthorn have been one of the form sides of the competition of late and have matched it with the competition’s best, winning five of eight and drawing another.
Last weekend they held out North Melbourne by 27 points. The Hawks are in 12th position on the ladder and still a mathematical possibility of making the eight but would need a series of unlikely results from other games to sneak in.
They venture to Etihad Stadium for the first time this season and have a number of players in great form, including Tom Mitchell, Isaac Smith, Jack Gunston and James Silcily.
Mitchell is into second favouritism for the Brownlow at $5.50 with CrownBet and is sure to find a stack of the footy this weekend, while Gunston and Sicily have been providing plenty of class and rebound in their new roles across halfback.
Those players will need big games once again, while at Carlton, look for Marc Murphy, Bryce Gibbs and Matthew Kruezer to have an influence. Kruezer is in All-Australian contention and takes on Ben McEvoy in the ruck.
A concern for Carlton is their lack of firepower up forward. Levi Casboult has bobbed up with 31 goals this season but the Blues are yet to kick over 100 points in any of their games this year and rank last for points scored. Their coach, Brendan Bolton, has some homework to do if he is to find the winning formula against his former club.
