This game will shed light on how good these teams really are. St Kilda looks to be improving as the season advances, breaking records with their crushing of the Bombers last week, but is that a tick for the Saints or an indictment of where Essendon is at? Meanwhile the Giants have struggled to cope with the loss of their backline but they showed a lot of fight against the Tigers at the MCG last week.
With both sides relying on undersized backlines and sporting strong midfields and forward lines, this could become a shoot-out at Spotless. Let’s hope the predicted showers hold off.
Congratulations to Sam Gilbert for his perseverance in reaching 150 games after multiple injury setbacks.
