Zane Littlejohn and his match committee have named an unchanged line-up for Saturday’s Preliminary Final, with the same 23 which won the Hawks a place in the penultimate game of the season tasked with earning a berth in next weekend’s Grand Final.
Naturally, Tristan Waack retains his place as the Hawks’ 23rd man, while… Truthfully, there are only so many ways to say “there are no changes.”
The same 23 we played last week will play this week. There. I wish I could give you more insight or commentary, but what more can I say?
Ferg played last week, he plays again this week. Damo the same. Maxxy Ramsden likewise. Josh Bennetts, too… the list goes on.
Continuity for the win!
The game is scheduled to begin at 3:00pm Saturday, with live coverage into Victoria on Channel 7. Hawks fans elsewhere will be able to live stream that broadcast via the channel’s 7plus app or, alternatively, watch along through the VFL’s match centre.
The Club will communicate any late changes prior to the first bounce.
