PLAN YOUR TRIP
For those driving in, a new Roundhouse Car Park at Inveresk has 850 spaces and can be accessed from Forster Street. This is very short easy walk to Gate 10 and a great alternative due to limited car parking on the Old Cycle Track and southern Inveresk Car Park.
Watch: Live on Seven, Fox Footy, and stream on Kayo.
We last met in Round 20, 2021, where a fourth quarter come back wasn't enough for us to overcome the Hawks in Tassie. The margin got out to as much as 50-pts in the third quarter, but the boys came back hard to go down by 12. Dan McStay kicked four goals, and JL shined with a near career-high 38 disposals.
We'll be looking to start the game quick this weekend to avoid any further blowouts at UTAS.
