IT is one of the most important editions of one of the great modern day rivalries as Hawthorn faces Geelong on Saturday afternoon.
The Hawks (12-7, 121.4%) are eyeing a spot in the top four with a victory but, with a loss, are at risk of tumbling out of the top eight – the ladder is just that tight.
The Cats (11-8, 118.8%) were a win outside of the eight at the beginning of the round and while their last two games of the year look simple enough, defeating Hawthorn is still vital for their finals hopes.
