Hawthorn has made four changes ahead of its clash with the Bulldogs on Sunday afternoon at Adelaide Oval.
Finn Maginness is the big story, with the father/son recruit set to make his debut in the brown and gold – the third generation of the Maginness family to do so.
« It always gives the team a great boost of energy when we have a debutant run out, and tomorrow’s game will be particular special for the Maginness family.
« Finn has shown solid growth over the last 12 months, and this exposure to AFL level in his first season will be a fantastic development opportunity.
On the opposite side of the experience spectrum, Maginness will be joined in the side by Shaun Burgoyne – who this morning announced he’d signed a new deal with the Hawks, ruckman Ben McEvoy, and Vice Captain Jaeger O’Meara who has recovered from the hand surgery that held him out for the past four games.
James Worpel will be out for the remainder of the season after injuring his AC joint in last week’s loss, while Dan Howe, Josh Morris and Changkuoth Jiath have been omitted.
Hawthorn will use Sunday’s match as an opportunity to thank Victoria’s Emergency Services and frontline workers, as the club celebrates its second inaugural Emergency Services Match.
