Is anyone else getting a sense of deja-vu? These teams only just met in Round 11, yet meet again today: Wonderful scheduling AFL!
For Melbourne, the rematch will be welcomed after the Demons did everything but win the game last time. In Round 11, the Demons seemed likely to break their St Kilda hoodoo of ten straight losses (eleven now), except they forgot to send numbers back in the dying seconds of the match, allowing Montagna to kick a simple goal to win the game. If the game is close again, expect the entire Melbourne team to flood the backline!
As they have done all year, both teams played well in patches last week with the Saints pushing Richmond and Melbourne defeating Brisbane. They won’t put on a pretty game today but expect another enjoyable, tight contest.
Thommo’s tip: Melbourne by 6 points.
