Hodge likely to line up for AFL Grand Final

HAWTHORN have put the finishing touches on their preparations for Saturday’s AFL Grand Final against West Coast in Melbourne.

All eyes were on skipper Luke Hodge and Jack Gunston as they work to overcome injury in the final hours.

The pair joined their teammates and moved freely in the 55-minute session held in front of about 5000 fans.


Coach Alastair Clarkson barely had his players move at anything more than half pace but the session was completed without mishap.

Defender Josh Gibson spoke to reporters ahead of the training run and said that the Hawks’ focus remained solely on defeating West Coast and not the historic opportunity at a third premiership in a row.

“For us it’s about finishing off 2015, we’ve worked so hard to get here and we want to play another good four quarters on grand final day,” Gibson said.

“We don’t talk about the three-peat.”
