There is no reason why we shouldn't beat the hawks by 30+ points. They are a bottom two side missing sicily, gunston and patton
agree. i am confident we will be a bit more switched on after underestimating them last year.
Yeah we'll know more about them after Round 7.
Rd 3 - Eagles at Optus
Rd 4 - Tiges at Adelaide Oval
Rd 5 - Blues at MCG
Rd 6 - Saints at Adelaide Oval
Rd 7 - Brisbane at the Gabba
If they win 3 of those then they will have arrived and are a proper premiership contender.
They've basically been given 2 byes to start the season.
They probably won't win 3 of those. but even if they don't that doesn't mean they can't win the flag. Going by Richmonds experience in 2019 and 2020, you probably wanna play a lot of those tougher games later in the season and winning those games. The biggest unknown about Port is how they will perform at the MCG. You could mount an argument that the carlton game is the just about the biggest of that group of games. They wouldn't wanna receive a touch up.
