Hawthorn are training for a tough-as-nails encounter against 40,000 West Coast Eagles and not just 22 this weekend.

The Hawks head west to play the Eagles in a match that, if lost, is likely to spell the end of their bid for the minor premiership.

Cyril Rioli, the star of last year's grand final success over the Eagles, said the "crowd is the number one thing" when it comes to beating West Coast.
