Hawthorn’s Dominance Continues: A Look at Key Players and Match Locations in Recent Games against St Kilda


Moore the Merrier for Hot Hawks

Hawthorn has been in dominant form in their recent encounters with St Kilda, winning their last two clashes by comfortable margins. The Hawks will be looking to continue their winning streak against the struggling Saints when they meet at the University of Tasmania Stadium in Launceston on Saturday afternoon.

Key Players to Watch

Hawthorn’s resurgence has been built around the impressive form of several key players, including:

  • Jack Gunston: The veteran forward has been a consistent performer for the Hawks, booting 12 goals in his last three games.
  • Tom Mitchell: The reigning Brownlow medalist has been a dominant force in the midfield, averaging 30 disposals per game.
  • James Sicily: The All-Australian defender has been in superb form, keeping opposition forwards to just one goal per game on average.

St Kilda will need to find a way to contain these key players if they want to have any chance of upsetting the Hawks.

Match Location and History

The match will be played at the University of Tasmania Stadium in Launceston, which has been a successful hunting ground for Hawthorn in recent years. The Hawks have won their last three games at the venue, including a 43-point victory over St Kilda in 2022.

Overall, Hawthorn has a superior head-to-head record against St Kilda, winning 122 of their 202 encounters. The Hawks have also won the last two meetings between the sides, by 41 points in 2023 and 34 points in 2022.

Preview and Prediction

Hawthorn will go into the match as clear favorites, but St Kilda has shown signs of improvement in recent weeks. The Saints upset Essendon in Round 7 and came close to beating Fremantle in Round 8.

The Hawks will be looking to continue their winning streak and consolidate their position in the top four. St Kilda, on the other hand, will be desperate to break their losing run and keep their slim finals hopes alive.

Hawthorn has been in impressive form and should be too strong for St Kilda on Saturday. The Hawks are likely to win by 20-30 points.
