Venue: Etihad Stadium 1:10pm AEST
Last Time They Met: R23, 2016, St Kilda 25.11 (161) d Brisbane Lions 15.13 (103) at Eithad Stadium
Game Notes: After a pre-season full of hype and an expectation of finals, St Kilda’s stuttering start to the season has not been what it wanted. The situation isn’t all bad though, despite the zero and two win-loss record. Alan Richardson’s men put in a gallant effort in Perth against premiership contender West Coast and showed significantly better form than they dished up versus Melbourne in round one. However, they will need to show up with a similar intensity to beat the improving Brisbane Lions. While Chris Fagan has been in charge for only two games, they look to have improved from the side that won three matches in 2016. Having Dayne Beams back on the field certainly helps and Stefan Martin’s form is another bonus, after the former Demon didn’t live up to his own high standards last year.
Huttabito’s Tip: St Kilda by 20 (3-1)
