Hawthorn Hawks vs Adelaide Crows Preview
Hawthorn’s season is effectively over following last week’s disaster against the Bombers, but they’ll still be eager to avoid complete embarrassment against the Crows on Tuesday afternoon.
Adelaide are well-rested heading into Tuesday’s contest following their Round 14 bye, so this shapes up as a very winnable contest for the Crows to finally breakthrough for their first victory of the season.
Daniel Talia and Brad Crouch are both a chance at returning, which is more than can be said for the battered and bruised Hawks.
Jon Patton is set to miss the remainder of the year with a tendon injury in his foot, while there’s still no word on Jaeger O’Meara, James Frawley, Ricky Henderson or Issac Smith at time of publish.
Hawthorn were fantastic in the first half last week against the Bombers, so it’s very difficult to get a read on them heading into this game.
The Hawks succumbed to the pressure in the late stages against the Dons, but their biggest issue was inaccuracy in front of the sticks.
Hawthorn lacked a significant target up forward once Patton left the ground and it is difficult to trust Jack Gunston and Luke Breust to completely carry the load.
The Crows have done a lot wrong this year, but one thing they have gotten right is tackling.
Adelaide ranks third in average tackles this year, so if the Crows can put the Hawks under some pressure, they might just be in this.
