Hawthorn v GWS
at University of Tasmania Stadium
The resurgent Hawks face their toughest test when premiership front-runners Greater Western Sydney come to town.
Hawthorn are up to 13th on the ladder with a 6-8 record following back-to-back wins over Adelaide and Collingwood. The Hawks have conceded less than 100 points in their last eight games. Hawthorn rank 15th in both scoring and defence. The Hawks enter this off their second highest score of the season, posting 118 against Collingwood.
Greater Western Sydney lead the league with a 10-3-1 record following a dramatic draw against Geelong. The Giants have played in six single-digit margin games in their last nine matches. GWS have lost just one of their last seven games. The Giants rank third in scoring while they rate fifth defensively.

What To Expect
Very keen to bet both the Giants minus and the under in this one. The Giants are a much better team than the Hawks and will appreciate playing a looser defence after a shutdown Geelong team. The Giants have an excellent record against the Hawks and travel as well as anyone while Launceston has been ugly of late for the Hawks.
