Hawthorn v Essendon

Have to treat this one with caution after the spike in performance from Hawthorn last week. Did they really fix a lot of their defensive issues over a bye week? The win might have at least given them the confidence that the system works, so they are a slight chance to do something similar again down in Tassie.

Essendon come off a much-needed bye, hopefully ready to dial up their offence and get back to posting some big totals. Unless you believe Hawthorn have turned the corner defensively by using a one-game sample size, you just have to be with the Bombers, even in foreign territory (they haven’t played there in over a decade).

The Worpel suspension is offset by the Bombers losing Andy McGrath, but Essendon still look to have the edge through the middle with their running power against some pretty slow Hawks top-liners.

Happy to side with Essendon to be too good offensively for Hawthorn here.
