THE BUILD-UP

The heat will be on as the Hawks and Pies meet at the G.

Hawthorn missed the finals in 2017 after so many years of success, but it’s Collingwood who need to return to September action.

The pressure continues to mount on Nathan Buckley as the Pies haven’t played a final since 2013.

Can they start their 2018 assault on the right foot? Or will the Hawks grab four early points?
