We’ve been served an absolute beauty for Friday Night! The Domain Stadium will host a repeat of the 2015 Grand Final. Even though the Eagles much prefer playing in their own back-yard, the final result will be the same as the Granny.
Nic Nat got West Coast over the line in Round 21 in what was an amazing match against GWS. On the same day the Hawks accounted for North Melbourne at the G to the song of 39 points. As previously mentioned, West Coast are the real-deal at home, they’ve only lost one in eleven this year. Both sides are evenly matched, Mitchell and Lewis will match any danger posed by Priddis and Shuey. Cyril Rioli is more than a match at the moment for the seasons leading kicker Kennedy. The AFL got the search parties out after Josh Kennedy’s performance in the final last year, however like his team he’s a different beast in front of a home crowd. That said, I think the Hawks know how to deal with him, expect him to have a quiet game in front of the posts.
I’m backing Hawthorn to win a close game, they know how to get the job done in crucial games. Priddis hasn’t been a stand-out compared to recent season, I expect Mitchell to get the better of him today. Get on Sam Mitchell to have 30+ disposals at $1.5. I’ve also already talked up Rioli, he’s well worth getting on $4.5 at to slot four or more.
