WHERE AND WHEN: Etihad Stadium, Sunday, August 26, 4.40PM AEST
St Kilda’s Good Friday loss to North Melbourne earlier this year saw its season fall into a tailspin, and despite finals being out of the question for both sides, that alone should motivate the Saints. For the Roos, their key forward Ben Brown sits two goals behind Coleman Medal leader and Richmond star Jack Riewoldt going into round 23, so they will likely look for him whenever possible to boost his tally. Furthermore, several players on both sides will be doing all they can to earn a new contract. North has key talls Jarrad Waite and Scott Thompson yet to sign up, and both will want to make compelling cases for new deals. Similarly. Jack Lonie is coming off a four-goal haul against Hawthorn last week and his impressive form in the past few weeks must be making the Saints think hard about signing him on again.
