Carlton Blues vs St Kilda Saints Preview

Originally scheduled for Saturday arvo, now bumped up to the Thursday night prime-time slot because 2020 – this match between Carlton and the Saints is set to be a beauty!

The blood pressure and heart rate of Blues fans will be under close scrutiny this week.

All three of their matches since the season resumed have been decided by under a kick, and their two wins on the trot have been decided by a total of three points.

Carlton’s accuracy in front of goal is a concern and while it’s nice to be on the winner’s list, they would probably like a bit of a buffer zone come the final siren, not just for their percentage but the health and well-being for everyone associated with the old dark Navy Blues.

St Kilda played their best game in years against the reigning premiers Richmond last week and was an absolute delight to watch, especially in this age of keepings off, low scoring, chippy crap that most teams are dishing up.

Dan Butler played his career-best game against his old side with three sausage rolls and Tim Membrey was amongst the Saints best.

Marvel Stadium is yet again becoming a fortress for the Saints, having won five out of their last six at the ground.

The Blues have a woeful record there, winning three out of their last 17.

Both teams are playing great football right now, but the Saints should get the job done in this one.
