Carlton Blues vs Hawthorn Hawks Preview
Carlton’s season still has a pulse sitting just four points adrift from ninth, but they’ll need to ensure they take care of business this week against an out of sorts Hawthorn side hungry to make amends for last week’s embarrassment.
The Hawks gifted North Melbourne its first win of the season despite leading by four goals at the end of the first term.
Hawthorn’s backline fell apart in the second half under an enormous amount of pressure from the Roos – a strategy the Blues will likely look to employ this week with Harry McKay currently leading the Coleman chase.
Despite what the scoreboard suggests, the Blues can also feel good about their performance last week against the undefeated Dees.
Carlton gave Melbourne a scare at various stages throughout the first half, and they should be able to capitalize this week against a Hawthorn side that has allowed the second-most goals in the league.
You can never discount Alastair Clarkson pulling a rabbit out of his hat following a loss like last week, but with a steady 5-4 record at the line this year, the Blues look a good bet to remain in the finals mix.
