Hawthorn was eyeing off a surprise top-eight spot of its own, but has fallen to defeat in five of its past six games to slip to a 4-7 record.

Hawks pair Luke Breust and Liam Shiels, both three-time premiership players, will play their 250th games.

Hawthorn is boosted by the returns of Jack Gunston and Jaeger O’Meara among four changes, while the Pies are settled, with Beau McCreery into the 22.

Arguably the game of the round is saved for last as Fremantle takes on Brisbane at Optus Stadium.

The Dockers confirmed they are contenders this season by ending Melbourne’s 17-game winning streak last week.

But Freo faces another huge test of its premiership credentials when the Lions visit.

Callum Ah Chee is the unlucky Lion omitted to make way for Hugh McCluggage, while the Dockers have included Ethan Hughes and Lloyd Meek for injured pair Matt Taberner and Michael Walters, with Heath Chapman also sidelined.
