BOX HILL HAWKS vs FOOTSCRAY BULLDOGS - 2:15 Sunday at Etihat Stadium

Dogs made the Grand Final in our first year as a stand-alone club. Defeated the mighty Port Melbourne to earn a shot at the premiership.

Hawks looking to go back-to-back. Just got over the line against the Dogs' former VFL affiliated team and 2014 Foxtel Cup winners Williamstown.

Lin Jong to be best on and Liam Jones to kick a bag to inflate his asking price since he's probably seeking a trade.

Footscray (then known as the-tri colours) have good form in VFA/VFL Grand Finals. Last time we were in this competition (1886-1924) and after the 1896 split that saw the VFL (now AFL) formed, we won 9 premierships between 1898 and 1924. This included a hat-trick from 1898 to 1900 and four premierships between 1919 and 1924. Then joined the VFL in 1925. Time to reclaim our dominance!

The Dogs smashed Port in the last quarter. I had no idea Jordan Russell was playing for the Dogs until I saw the game on the weekend. He was the co-captain with I think Prismall on the day. He ended up kicking one after the siren which I think was the 10th goal of the last quarter. The Hawks looked good with Big Boy in the team, I think he might get a call up to the seniors this week, but if Cyril comes through the reserves this weekend (which I doubt) that should make it an interesting game to watch. Litherland, Shoenmakers and Suckling might also all be suiting up for Box Hill

Nick Lower is the captain of the VFL side and Russell and Prismal were just filling in for the injured captain.

Cyril won't be allowed to play since he hasn't played any VFL games this year. They got away with McEvoy being allowed to play despite playing 1 less game than the required amount but allowing Rioli to get a run is simply unfair. That'd be like us being allowed to put Griffen in.

The reason they had to get an exemption for Big Boy is that the Hawks had a week off going straight into the prelim. If the AFL side has a final that week they can play whomever they like in the reserves making Big Boy eligible along with Cyril for the VFL GF if they choose to play them in the reserves this week.

There will be no questions asked about his validity in the team next week as all Hawthorn-listed players are eligible to play in the VFL grand final because its AFL team plays on the same weekend.
It means Ryan Schoenmakers, who had a quiet display in the Young Guns exhibition game as the curtain raiser to the clash, and Matt Suckling, who missed because he failed a fitness test on Friday, and even perhaps Cyril Rioli  - if Hawthorn saw it as a preferred option - could play in the VFL grand final against the Dogs next week.

Based on squads alone, Box Hill will destroy.

You don't think it will be much of a game?

Will be if you're a Box Hill supporter. I may possibly be a tad biased though.  ;) Doesn't help that I don't rate a number of those Bulldog players.
