Game notes: This shapes as one of the more intriguing games of the round, with the Etihad Stadium co-tenants both having up-and-down starts to the season. The Dogs have sputtered their way to a 5-4 record without putting together a four-quarter performance, but unlike many other sides, they’re yet to blown anyone off the park yet. The Saints on the other hand, were poor last week against a resurgent Sydney and succumbed to a 50-point hiding on their home turf after three-straight wins. With a host of players returning to side after injury lay-offs including Tory Dickson, Travis Cloke and Mitch Wallis, Luke Beveridge will be hoping the premiers will finally be able to find the consistency that has been eluding them. Like most games at the indoor venue, the team that wins the clearances and uses the ball efficiently will take home the four points.
Thommo’s Tip: St Kilda by 15 points.
