Two of the competition's big improvers face off in this intriguing Round 12 clash at the MCG.

SUMMARY: Collingwood vs Hawthorn is on Fox Footy. So unless you're already an existing Foxtel iQ customer with the Sports HD pack, your best option is to watch live on Kayo Sports. New users can watch for free using this 14-day trial.

In the lead-up to this clash vs Collingwood, Hawthorn were riding high after downing the Brisbane Lions in Round 10, but they crashed back to earth at the hands of the Gold Coast Suns last week. Overall, their season has been improving and they are always dangerous.

Collingwood looked to be falling away a fortnight ago when heavily beaten by the Bulldogs, but the last 2 weeks have been very impressive with wins over Fremantle and Carlton.

This clash is at the mighty MCG in Melbourne, kicking off at 2:10pm AEST on Sunday 5 June.

Collingwood Magpies vs Hawthorn Hawks

Hawthorn have produced some good wins this year and a couple of tough losses, but overall they are clearly tracking the right way. This is a fascinating contest between 2 sides giving their fans plenty of reasons to smile.
