St Kilda vs Sydney Preview


The Saints were on the wrong side of a 31-point result against the Blues.

Brett Ratten’s outfit will be looking for revenge after a narrow and heart-breaking loss to the Swans in Round 12. However, Sydney has the upper hand on them, winning 11 of the last 12 meetings.

Their loss sees them with a very slight chance of making the eight, but if Sydney prevails it will be the final nail in the coffin. They will need to win all of their three remaining games against Sydney.

Meanwhile, the Swans won one of the best matches of the season against the Bombers by seven points.

Their triumph over Essendon was their fifth win on the trot. They have beaten West Coast (92 points), Western Bulldogs (19 points), GWS (26 points), Fremantle (40 points) and Essendon (seven points).

This fantastic run of form has them with a very big chance of claiming an optimistic top-four spot, with three rounds remaining. They currently sit four points behind the Power with a similar percentage.

The Swans are one of the most in-form teams of the competition, and they should be able to get the four points to pile the misery on the Saints.

Saints vs Swans Team News


The Saints will be forced to make two changes with Hunter Clark and Dougal Howard suffering injuries. Whilst Paddy Ryder should return for the side after being a late out last week. 

James Bell only managed four disposals against Essendon and could be dropped as a result. Otherwise, they will likely be unchanged.

The two sides last met in Round 12 this season, which saw the Swans win by nine points.
