Hawthorn will be eager to return to the winners list when it takes on the Gold Coast Suns this Saturday at UTAS Stadium.

The Hawks are coming off the back of a narrow 12-point loss to St Kilda, while it was the opposite story for Gold Coast who secured a three-point victory against West Coast to keep its slim finals hopes alive. 

Hawthorn fans will get the opportunity to celebrate their captain Ben McEvoy as he suits up for his 250th career game.

McEvoy joined the Hawks in 2014 and has since gone on to play 158 in the brown and gold, prior to his 91 games with St Kilda. 

In further excitement for fans, first-year player Jai Serong will also make his AFL debut.

Last time we met    

Gold Coast (121) defeated Hawthorn (54) – Round 11, 2022  

The Suns were to strong when they last met the Hawks in Darwin, taking home a 67-point win.

In one of the Hawks’ more disappointing performance of the season, the Gold Coast got on top early and never took its foot off the pedal. 

Leading from the start, the Suns kicked nine of the first 11 goals and led by as much as 47 points late in the second term.

The Hawks had few answers for Gold Coast, with the Suns continuing their dominance in the second half.

Tom Mitchell (29 disposals), Harry Morrison (24 disposals) and James Sicily (21 disposals) were the shining lights for the Hawks on what was a tough day. 

Our last game   

St Kilda (75) defeated Hawthorn (63)

It was a game of two-halves last Saturday, with St Kilda hanging on to secure a 12-point victory against a fast-finishing Hawthorn at Marvel. 

The Saints looked to be on their way to a comfortable win after booting seven unanswered goals between the first and third terms which helped open up a 44-point lead.

However, the Hawks had other plans, kicking eight of the last ten goals - including the final five - to create a grandstand finish. 

Luke Breust cut the margin to 12 points with just under six minutes to go, but in the end, the Saints were able to do just enough to hang on.

Jai Newcombe and Jack Scrimshaw finished with an equal game-high two goals each, while Tom Mitchell, Josh Ward and Harry Morrison featured among the best on ground.
