St Kilda Saints vs GWS Giants Preview
It’s a “win and you’re in” type scenario on Friday night.
Currently sitting seventh, St Kilda find themselves as the favourite in the market despite suffering a 15-point loss to West Coast last week that has now left them with everything to play for.
If the Saints win, they’ll secure their spot in the finals, but if the Giants pull off an upset, it’s safe to say St Kilda fans will have a nervous weekend on their hands.
A Giants and Bulldogs win, plus a Demons victory by 25-points or more over the Bombers would be enough to knock the Saints out of the eight.
GWS, meanwhile, can still play finals if they win and both the Demons and Bulldogs lose respectively.
The Giants have had the wood over the Saints in recent years winning three of their last five meetings, but it’s difficult to trust them after losing back-to-back games to Melbourne and Adlaide.
GWS’ biggest problem this year has been getting the ball inside 50, and they aren’t about to find life any easier against a St Kilda side that has allowed the sixth-fewest entries to opponents.
With four more games of experience at the Gabba also working to their advantage, the Saints look a good bet to punch their ticket.
