Hawthorn assistant coach Damian Monkhorst has explained to Triple M why the side has made a late change for their qualifying final.

MONKHORST EXPLAINS:

The Hawks swung a late change ahead of their massive clash with the Tigers, with Ryan Schoenmakers coming out of the side.

Dan Howe - who has just finished a five-game suspension - will come into the side in his place.

Monkhorst joined Triple M ahead of the clash and said there were a couple of reasons for the late change, including that Schoenmakers had a slight injury concern.

"The old niggle, Monky, just before the game!" Paul Roos laughed.

"I know what, Clarko, we had a couple of blokes with niggles when I pulled them out with about half an hour to go, too. They niggled themselves back to the carpark, that's what they did!"
