WHERE AND WHEN: MCG, Sunday July 1, 1.10pm AEST
Prior to the season, Melbourne and St Kilda were two teams widely tipped to push into finals contention. After 14 rounds, the Demons are well in the finals race, while the Saints find themselves massively off the pace. Following two losses in a row, Melbourne needs a win to get its season back on track and keep pace with the AFL’s top four. With a tricky fixture to navigate at the end of the season, capitalising on wins now will be crucial for the Demons’ finals chances. For Alan Richardson’s side, building on the momentum it gained in a thrilling win over Gold Coast prior to the bye will be paramount. The Saints can’t change how they performed in the first half of the season but finishing off the year by pinching a few wins will be paramount.

Father Dougal’s Tip: They like to feast upon the weak, so Demons by 30
