How to watch Hawthorn Hawks vs Adelaide Crows AFL live and match preview
The Hawks are hoping to avoid a fifth straight loss when they take on the Crows in Tasmania on Anzac Day.
The Hawks simply can't afford to lose this match. They have been more than competitive this season, but they have still lost four straight. Adelaide are also coming in on a loss after losing to Fremantle.
Rory Sloane's absence has been noticeable for the Crows. They'll yet again miss him this week against Hawthorn. Four points in Launceston will be worth their weight in gold. Adelaide to hold on to the top eight and Hawthorn to avoid last place.
When is Hawthorn vs Adelaide?
The Hawks vs Crows will be played at the University of Tasmania Stadium in Launceston at 12:30pm AEST on Sunday 25 April.

Hawks vs Crows match preview
Adelaide's former captain Taylor Walker has been in sensational form. Going into round 6, he leads the AFL's goal-scoring list with 22 majors ahead of Bulldogs star Josh Bruce and Richmond's Jack Riewoldt (both 17).
Hawthorn have been on a steady decline since they last reached the finals in 2018. They fielded just 3 players under the age of 21 in their 50-point loss to Melbourne last week so the young talent just isn't developing.
Their recruitment strategy has also been questioned, with the exception of guns Chad Wingard and Tom Mitchell. Former Swan Mitchell has been superb this season, sitting second in the AFL for disposals (170) behind Bulldogs prolific ball-winner Jack Macrae (176).
We love a good pun so we'll predict this match is Taylor-made for a Crows upset. Adelaide to win by 15 points.
