It’s an Easter Monday blockbuster to close out the opening round.

Geelong fans will get to see their boom recruit Patrick Dangerfield in action for his first AFL match in new colours, and expectation could scarcely be higher.

A win over the old enemy would be a pretty nice start.

But the rampaging Hawks are on the hunt for history, within striking distance of a fourth straight flag.

They started 2015 with a big win over Geelong. Will 2016 start off on the same foot?
