Hawthorn aiming at back to back Premierships for the first time, Geelong under Malcolm Blight looking for its first Premiership since the days of Polly Farmer in 1963. Hawthorn coach Allan Jeans knew he would need something special to stop the brilliance of the Cats and their fabulous spearhead Gary Ablett. “Operation Tackle” was devised to blunt Geelong. The Geelong players had some plans of their own. This is the story of the battle for the 1989 Premiership by the men who played such a major role. The behind the scenes story of one of the best footy matches ever played. Join Jeans, Dunstall, Brereton, Dipper and Tuck as they talk tactics, look back with emotion and reminisce on a rousing and costly victory.
