2008 was a very successful year for the Hawthorn Hawks. They kicked things off with two out of three wins in the preseason NAB Cup competition. This dominant style of playing carried over into the home and away season as the team won nine straight matches to kick things off. Overall, they finished second on the AFL ladder, and went through the Finals with ease to earn their place in the Grand Final. They defeated the Geelong Cats to take their first Premiership since 1991.
The 2008 squad was one worthy of the books; though, plenty of the same members continue to play for the team. As they continue to be a dominant force in the AFL, plenty of fans flock to Ladbrokes.com.au to back them throughout the season. Sign up and place your bets on the Hawthorn Hawks and it won’t be long before you’re reaping the rewards.
