Game notes: St Kilda killed Melbourne with their fast-break football last week but doing the same to the all-conquering Kangaroos will be a far tougher task. North comfortably shut down the run of the Doggies last week so they’re more than capable of doing the same to the Saints today.

While the Saints are always a chance of upsetting any sides that don’t bring their A-game, there’s little chance of the Roos having a bad day while celebrating Drew Petrie’s 300th game. North have won their last 4 against the Saints and odds are they’ll continue that trend today.

Roos fans, get ready for 7-straight.

The 6 Points

1. When these teams last played, the Saints led at half-time by 20 points before the Kangaroos kicked nine goals in the third quarter. Drew Petrie booted four goals and Andrew Swallow had 25 disposals.

2. St Kilda has been one of the strongest centre clearance sides in 2016, ranked third. North Melbourne is only marginally behind in equal fourth place.

3. It will be the 154th time these clubs play. The Saints hold a very narrow advantage, winning 76 games to 75, with two draws.

4. The Kangaroos are ranked second for points per game, with 112. They have kicked at least 100 points in five of their six matches.

5. Another win and it will be the first time since 1979 the Kangaroos have won their first seven games of a season.

6. St Kilda skipper Nick Riewoldt struggled last time out against North Melbourne. He was the Saints’ 18th-ranked player, with only 5.1 Schick AFL Player Rating points.

Thommo’s Tip: North Melbourne by 36 points.

  4. Umpiring went against Hickey twice in the last 2 mins, the non block in the marking contest on the wing not called, then the ruck contest straight after.

    Well done Petrie on 300.

    1. Certainly a lucky escape for north. They’ve had a questionably charmed run with umpiring decisions – from cunnington getting off over the knees into Ablett, to today’s 22-16 free kick count.

      I will admit they copped the rough end of the free kick count last week though. So it certainly isn’t always their way.

Game Chat – St Kilda v North Melbourne

Written by Thommo on February 20 2016

Norm Minns Oval, Wangaratta at 2:05pm.

THE BURNING QUESTIONS

It’s all about role today. Where does Jed Anderson play for the Roos and how does the Saint’s midfield structure up?

SUPERCOACH WATCH

St Kilda: The most hype has centred around Gresham and Billings this preseason. Acres is also a player of interest after injuries ruined recent seasons.

North: As mentioned above, it’s all about Jed. Without Wells playing perhaps some coaches will be interested in where Higgins and Macmillan will play this year.

Who are you watching today? Any PODs?

  1. Really looking forward to watching Anderson, Clarke, Fordham, Garner and big Preuss play for North. All reports say they are in great form at training. StKilda players on my watch list are McCartin, Gresham and Coughlan. Go Roos! So glad to have footy back!

  2. Not much of interest but Anderson playing forward and not getting a lot of the ball while Higgins playing a roaming forward role and has even been getting into the back 50 regularly.

    Acres the best of the youngsters on the field. Gresham ok as well.
