WHERE AND WHEN: MCG at 1:45pm AEST
The Tigers will be looking to return to the winners list this week after losing just their second game for the season last Sunday. They’ll be looking to restore their pressure game after it somewhat deserted them against West Coast. They went into the clash ranked third for pressure points in the competition, and then posted the third-worst result for the round against the Eagles. It’s what the Tigers pride themselves on and they’ll need better output across the field if they’re to bounce back. Meanwhile, the Saints’ goalkicking remains a problem. Only once this season have they kicked more goals than behinds, and against Collingwood on Saturday night, they recorded 10.12 with midfielder Jack Newnes (four goals) the most damaging in attack. Tim Membrey remains out of form, and as their sole available key forward, needs to turn things around if the Saints are to be any chance against the premiers.
