Carlton will look to keep his hopes up in the final against a hawthorn side still reeling from a loss to North Melbourne previously winless this afternoon.
Les Bleus (3-6, 92.6%) have lost four of their last five games, but they were all against teams in the top five of the standings in Round 10, meaning they spent an extremely difficult of their match.
The Hawks (2-7, 75.4%) are hoping their recent dominance in this game can continue. They have won 17 of the last 18 meetings, dating back to 2005, their only loss being seven points in 2017.

As Carlton entered the game unchanged, Hawthorn was forced to make a late change, with three-time Prime Minister midfielder Liam Shiels being pulled late due to neck pain and replaced by Daniel Howe. The medical subs were Josh Honey (Blues) and Josh Morris (Hawks).
