Tonights game is hard for me as I am Dow hard hawks supporter so I'm not sure of that's clouding my judgement with this game.
I think after last years very disappoints loss to the pies in the finals I think hodge and co will want to make a statement.
A lot of rumours about Hodge being out (some even saying he is defiantely out) or that he will be a game time decision. Triple M mentioned it yesterday
I'd go Hawks. Who knows what the new game plan is for the Pies. There are some rumours the Pies will try go down the guts but personally I rate the Hawks defense quite high and their rebounding is second only to the Cats. That for me favours the Hawks.
On the flipside the Pies team is largely intact. They have ruck domination over the Hawks which will mean more posessions and the Pies efficiency has always been top 4. Pies will also try take advantage of their speed.
GL whichever you take
