Game Notes: Melbourne has not won three consecutive games since rounds 17-19, 2010. It has a real chance to end that streak this Saturday against the Saints, who have lost their past two matches. St Kilda had “too many passengers” in the words of coach Alan Richardson against the Giants and will be eager to make a statement against the Demons. St Kilda will be keenly aware of disrupting the connection between ruckman Max Gawn and in-form midfielder Jack Viney. That’s why Tom Hickey’s role in the ruck will be so crucial, while David Armitage and Jack Steven will be relied upon to do the heavy lifting.

The 6 Points

1.St Kilda has racked up plenty of disposals in 2016, ranking third in the AFL with an average of 402 per game. The Demons are seventh (378.6 per game).

2. St Kilda has dominated Melbourne over a long period, winning a club-record 12 consecutive contests since 2007. A two-point loss in 2015 is the closest the Demons have been in that time.

3. Melbourne continues to improve its scoring in 2016. After five games its average points per game is 101 compared to only 71 in 2015.4.

4. If the Demons beat the Saints, it will be the first time since 2005 the club will have started the season with four wins and two losses.

5. Melbourne and St Kilda have played nine times at Etihad Stadium, with six wins to the Saints. The Demons won their last Etihad game at the end of 2015, defeating the Giants, after losing their previous 22 games at the venue.

6. Melbourne ruckman Max Gawn is on the charge in overall SC points. Currently 5th behind such names as Goldstein, Parker, Dangerfield and, um, Waite.

Mottsy’s tip: Dees by 15

While we do our best to update posts with end of quarter scores, we aren’t always online so if you have access to the scores and see they haven’t gone into the Comments section of this post, the Community would love it if you could help us out.

Game Chat – Melbourne v St Kilda

Written by Thommo on March 13 2016

Etihad Stadium at 4:10pm

GAWN AGAIN

With the Saints lacking a dominant ruck, get ready to watch the Gawn show again. His little mate Viney has been handy too!

SUPERCOACH WATCH

MELBOURNE

Guns: Gawn and McDonald are popping up in plenty of Supercoach teams while Viney is guaranteed to break-out this year. Having recovered from his neck injury, Nathan Jones should return to the heights of 2014.

Mid-pricers: Salem could be an inspired selection. Jack Watts could also improve (finally) but who would select him?

Rookies: Oliver, Wagner, Terlich and Kennedy are all worth watching.

ST KILDA

Guns: Mr Unpopular, Montagna, will show why we shouldn’t ignore him. Stevens, Roberton and Armitage are pretty handy as well.

Mid-pricers: With the wash-out last year, we missed a dose of Billings, so watch his role closely today. Dunstan is a chance to break-out this year as well. He hasn’t received much attention, but Ross has been “burning up the track” according to the club.

Rookies: Acres and Gresham could both line-up in round 1.

  3. I think Chillo was saying the scores are off this preseason and I have to agree. They don’t seem to be awarding points for contested possessions as they normally would.

    Jack Steven managing 30 possessions, 17 contested at 73% DE along with a goal and 7 tackles seems too low even with a few clangers and 24 players for each side.
