Saturday marks the end of an era at the MCG as Hawthorn bids farewell to four-time premiership coach Alastair Clarkson.
The Hawks have done their leader proud over the last three weeks with impressive wins over Brisbane, Collingwood and the Dogs as they now look to send Clarko off in style with one last victory over the reigning premiers.
There is a mathematical chance of Richmond still playing finals, but it would take nothing short of a miracle. The Tigers would need to win by 100+ points over the Hawks and rely on Collingwood to win by 60+ over Essendon to still make the eight.
At this point, Richmond is simply looking to wrap things up on a high note against a team they’ve had no trouble beating over the last few years, but given the form the Hawks have shown, this game looks far from a guarantee.
Hawthorn’s forward line has looked unstoppable in recent weeks, and you just know the genius of Clarko is going to shine through in his final game in brown and gold.
