Hawthorn Hawks vs Essendon Bombers Preview
Essendon’s season is on the line this Thursday afternoon. They take on the Hawks in a must-win game if they’re any chance to play finals this season.
The Hawks seem destined to miss the finals but they would love nothing more than to derail the Bombers season.
I’m backing the Hawks to get up in a bit of a Alastair Clarkson masterclass.
