St Kilda Saints vs West Coast Eagles Preview
The Saints and the Eagles could potentially trade places on the ladder with just two games remaining before finals.
St Kilda moved one step closer to extending their season into October with a 14-point win over Hawthorn last week, but head coach Brett Ratten will be hoping for a much better performance after his side kicked 14 behinds.
West Coast weren’t as fortunate against the Bulldogs in their nail-biting two-point loss at Metricon.
In what can only be described as one of the games of the season, a late Marcus Bontempelli goal proved the difference between sixth and a spot back inside the top four.
Adam Simpson’s men have responded well to previous losses this season and that has been reflected in the market.
West Coast are 3-2 in their last five games following a previous defeat, while the Eagles have also won their last two encounters against the Saints.
For what it’s worth, St Kilda have also struggled at the Gabba this year winning only one from three, and with goal kicking proving a problem last week, you have to like the Eagles to get the job done.
