LISTEN to Duck and OZ preview the Round 17 clash against Hawthorn.
What it means for Hawthorn: The Hawks need to be near-perfect to keep their slim finals hopes alive, but September footy will still be on the agenda for Alastair Clarkson. Victory in Launceston will keep the momentum going.
What it means for Fremantle: With injuries compounding some regrettable losses, finals suddenly look a distant prospect. They need a win on the road to settle the nerves.
The stat: Fremantle doesn't have a good record in Launceston, winning just one of its 11 games at the venue. That win came in the famous 'siren-gate' victory over St Kilda back in 2006.
The match-up: Dan Howe v Nat Fyfe
Stopping the inspirational Fremantle captain could be key to Hawthorn's hopes of securing victory in Launceston. Howe has done a good job on a number of talented opposition midfielders recently, limiting Scott Pendlebury's influence on Friday night. Expect him to go to Fyfe this weekend.
It's a big week for: Mitch Lewis (Hawthorn)
The young Hawthorn forward enjoyed a breakout performance last week, with his contested marking and ability to hit the scoreboard a highlight of his display. He'll now be looking to add consistency to his game and has a great opportunity to do that on Saturday.
