St Kilda v Adelaide Crows Tips, Predictions and Match Preview - Saints to sneak home at Marvel

Trent Orwin 24 Apr 2019
  • St Kilda sit second on the ladder
  • Both clubs won last week

St Kilda host the Adelaide Crows at Marvel Stadium in their Round 6 clash on Saturday.

The first bounce is 4:35pm AEST and the match will be broadcast live on Fox Footy.

Match Preview


St Kilda have kicked off the 2019 season in style with four wins and one loss as they sit second on the ladder. They were far too good for Melbourne last week with a 40-point victory. Tim Membrey kicked four goals and Dean Kent booted three to go with 20 disposals. 

Adelaide come off a dominant victory over the Gold Coast Suns as they decimated the visitors 18.11 (119) to 6.10 (46). They are currently 12th with two wins and three losses. Star forward Eddie Betts celebrated his 300th game with six goals; one of them will likely be a goal of the year contender after a left-foot checkside from the pocket. 

The Saints enter this match in good form with a victory over Hawthorn prior to the Demons. Jack Steele leads the competition with 40 tackles, which comes as no surprise as he averages 6.7 throughout his career. Jack Billings leads the club in disposals and comes off 28 against the Demons. 

Adelaide will be relying on Betts (12 goals for the season) to have another good game but he needs help up forward with co-captain Taylor Walker next best with six to his name. Fellow co-captain Rory Sloane is always a crucial piece for the Crows and Steele will probably get the match up on him. 

Team News


St Kilda got through their win over Melbourne unscathed. Don’t expect too many changes to their list this week.

Adelaide lose Wayne Milera for 4-8 weeks after damage to an AC joint. Chayce Jones is available, while Myles Poholke kicked four goals and had 30 touches in the SANFL.
