Game Chat – Geelong v St Kilda

Written by Father Dougal on April 15 2018

WHERE AND WHEN: GMHBA Stadium, Sunday, April 15, 4.40pm

SUMMARY: With Geelong and St Kilda heading in at 1-2, Sunday’s twilight fixture becomes a crunch match for both clubs. Calls for Saints coach Alan Richardson to tinker with his forward set-up will grow louder after St Kilda managed just 12 majors in the past two weeks. After employing Ben Dixon as a goalkicking coach this year, the inefficient Saints will be looking to realign their radar, kicking a combined 26 behinds in the past fortnight. Geelong’s ruck set-up has been a changing commodity in the first three rounds, using Zac Smith, Rhys Stanley and Esava Ratugolea as their No.1 ruckman in their three matches. An inexperienced Cats defence is tipped to meet the Saints’ talls โ€“ Jack Henry, Zach Guthrie, Tom Stewart combining for 38 AFL matches. Despite missing Gary Ablett (hamstring), Patrick Dangerfield and Joel Selwood remain from the much talked-about trio, and will look to add further woe to a Saints’ midfield that has lost the clearance count in every match this year.

 

LAST FIVE TIMES:
R5, 2017: Geelong 19.12 (126) d St Kilda 13.10 (88) at Etihad Stadium
R14, 2016: St Kilda 14.9 (93) d Geelong 13.12 (90) at Etihad Stadium
R21, 2015: St Kilda 14.13 (97) drew with Geelong 15.7 (97) at Etihad Stadium
R13, 2014: Geelong 20.13 (133) d St Kilda 5.7 (37) at GMHBA Stadium
R18, 2013: Geelong 21.11 (137) d St Kilda 5.6 (36) at GMHBA Stadium

 

Father Dougalโ€™s Tip: Cat’s are going to martyr the Saints. Geelong by 30. I want to say 50, but going with 30.

  4. Is Mitch Duncan finally going to get the acknowledgement he deserves? He makes all the difference to this team.
