St Kilda Saints vs Hawthorn Hawks Preview
After once looking Top 8 shoe-ins, the Saints have come back to the pack following three losses in their last four games. Despite the poor results, Brett Ratten’s side have by no means been poor in the last fortnight, having lost by less than a kick to both Melbourne and Brisbane. Having said that, this clash is now a non-negotiable for Ratten, who needs four points to steady the ship. Tim Membrey underwent finger surgery on Monday and is in doubt for this one.
What to say about Alastair Clarkson’s Hawthorn side? After sprinting out of the blocks to go 3-1 in AFL season 2020, the Hawks came into $1.45 fancies to finish in the Top 8 with Palmerbet. Since then, however, Clarkson’s side have lost nine of their last 10 games, including their last five. The latest, against previously winless Adelaide, underlined just how far this mighty club have fallen. It’s rebuild time, and the fans know it.
And in more bad news, both Jaeger O’Meara and Isaac Smith won’t be back in time for this clash.
