Hawthorn vs Sydney match preview
Hawthorn's victory on Monday sees them riding high, but the loss of Mitch Lewis to injury does hurt them coming into this clash. They have shown terrific rebound ability off the half-back and their midfield is performing very well against the odds.
Hawthorn have had some ruck casualties this year as well and they'll need to dig deep again here.
Sydney continue to unearth some of the best up-and-comers in the AFL, with their spread of talent putting them in a very strong position to challenge this year.
These 2 sides have a famous modern rivalry and this is another important clash, but we feel Sydney are primed to challenge for the top 4 and should win this game.
