The Hawks are coming off an 18-goal loss to Colbinabbin.

Meanwhile, Mount Pleasant will look to continue its march up the ladder against Heathcote at Toolleen.

The Blues enter round six in fifth place at 2-2, but can put some space between themselves and those below with an expected victory.

Elmore has the bye.
