Tickets are now available for next month’s anticipated JLT Community Series clash between Hawthorn and Richmond at UTAS Stadium.
The Hawks and Tigers will meet on Saturday March 9, with the two clubs undoubtedly eager to have strong pre-seasons ahead of backing up a top four 2018 home and away finish.
This clash promises to showcase some of the game’s biggest names, with the likes of Jaeger O’Meara, Jarryd Roughead, Isaac Smith and Jack Gunston set to take on a Tiger outfit spearheaded by Jack Riewoldt, Dustin Martin, Alex Rance and Trent Cotchin. Eager fans will also be hoping to see new recruits Chad Wingard, Tom Scully and Tom Lynch take to the field in their new colours.
The Hawks and Tigers last met in the 2018 Qualifying Final, where the 2017 premiers ran out 31-point winners. This encounter will be the first time Richmond has played in Launceston since 2013 and in Tasmania more broadly since 2016.
