WHERE AND WHEN: Etihad Stadium, Saturday, August 4, 7.25pm AEST
This one has no impact on the top-eight, but both teams will be desperate for a win. The Western Bulldogs have won just one game in their past 10 and their last month has been particularly poor, losing all four by an average of 53 points. In fairness, a monster injury list has robbed a list that is packed with youth. Meanwhile, St Kilda fought hard against Greater Western Sydney last week but inaccuracy in front of goal was once again a problem. At their best, both the Saints and Bulldogs dial up the pressure and offer a formidable challenge, but sustaining that over the course of an entire match is another matter. St Kilda will again rely on Jake Carlisle, who has offered plenty in defence, while Jade Gresham has taken great strides both up forward and more recently, through the midfield.
