Brendan Fevola has picked out his winners for the AFL Grand Final
This game could turn out like Hawks game versus the Crows a few weeks back when they taught Adelaide a lesson at the G. The massive playing field made it hard for the Crows to stop Hawthorn. The Hawks have so many big game players, if just a few of them perform near their best then they'll get over the line where as the Eagles are relying on a few big names to put in season best performances. Josh Kennedy will need to be on fire for the Eagles to have any chance, the Coleman winner only kicked three in the qualifying final, which won't be good enough in the final.
I don't expect this game to go anything like the qualifying final, a game which the Hawks were pretty awful in. They'll have learnt their lesson and be warned about getting complacent. They welcome back a key man in Gunston, however Hartung was pretty stiff not to play another final.
The experience the Hawks boys will be invaluable, so many of them have plenty of finals experience unlike the Eagles. Holding your nerve is so important in big games like this.
Hawks are clear faves and they deserve this, they'll get the job done!
