St Kilda vs Fremantle Preview

The Saints fell short against the Cat by 14 points in an entertaining encounter last time out.

Brett Ratten’s outfit was the better of the two sides to start the match and threatened to cause another upset in Geelong. However, throughout the game, the dominance in the middle by the Cats proved too much.

St Kilda will be looking back at their season filled with disappointment after a strong season last year left them with optimistic hopes of a strong rebuild. They currently sit 12th, with one win in their last five matches.

Meanwhile, the Dockers kept their slim finals hopes alive with a triumph over cross-town rivals West Coast.

Fremantle rose to the occasion to end an 11-game losing streak against the Eagles. It was their ferocious pressure and clinical edge that gave them an early 40-point lead, which was enough to secure the four points.

Even a win won’t be enough to secure the Dockers fate. They will need some results to go their way. Due to their poor percentage, the Eagles and Bombers will both have to drop points to make the eight.

Although the Saints season ended last week and the Dockers, had an impressive victory. I still believe they’ll get the four points and starve the Dockers of any chance of playing finals football.
