Hawks target top two in Pies clash

- JUSTIN FRIS

Augusta-Margaret River’s push for a top-two spot can be enhanced with a victory over Busselton at Sir Stewart Bovell Park on Saturday.

Both sides will be playing for the Busselton Toyota Cup — a piece of silverware which has eluded the Hawks for a number of seasons.

However, coach Matt Jamieson liked what he saw from his side against Donnybrook last Sunday and was confident his players could replicate the dose.

“We are looking forward to the contest,” he said.

“It is always a good game when we play our arch rivals. They have won the last couple, so we have got to make sure we get the ascendancy back to where it was two or three years ago, when I think we won six in a row.

“It will be a challenge both us and them will be excited about I am sure.”

The Hawks blew Donnybrook away early last week, which was a welcome relief for the Hawks coach, as he is keen for them to bank early wins prior to the 2021 Nutrien Ag Country Championsh­ips.

“I think that was the good thing post-game on Sunday as well,” Jamieson said. “We were happy to talk about what we did right, along with the lessons we got from the week before against Bunbury.”
