St Kilda vs West Coast Preview and Prediction


St Kilda came away with a nervy 14-point triumph over the brave Hawks. Whilst, West Coast were poor in their disappointing defeat against the Bulldogs.

It looks like this season will be the first time the Saints will be playing finals football since 2011 and an important ingredient for their season was their off-field trade success, obtaining the names of Zak Jones, Paddy Ryder and Dan Butler.

Although St Kilda has had a stellar season, they will need to finish the back end of the season strongly to put themselves on the right track to win an elimination final.

St Kilda will have to utilise the ruck duel of Rowan Marshall and Paddy Ryder carefully against Nic Naitanui who has been in really strong form throughout the season, because I believe the game will be won in the midfield.

Jack Steele was influential for the Saints against the Hawks, finishing the match with 21 disposals, six tackles, six score involvements and a goal.

Meanwhile, West Coast was lacklustre in defeat against the hungrier Bulldogs.

The Eagles were made to rue for lack of scoring chances, having seven fewer scorings shots than the Bulldogs and 18 less inside 50โ€™s.

An area the Eagles will have to improve on from last week to beat the Saints, is their forward 50 pressure, allowing the Bulldogs to transition the ball out of defence far too easily.

Jack Redden was the best Eagle on a dull day against the Bulldogs, finishing the match with 20 disposals, 314 metres gained and seven clearances.

Although West Coast has a terrible record outside of Western Australia this season, I believe theyโ€™ll get the win against the Saints.
