WHERE AND WHEN: Etihad Stadium, Friday, July 13, 7.50pm AEST
Carlton finds itself stranded on the bottom of the ladder, with two games separating the Blues and Gold Coast in 17th. Not that St Kilda has fared a lot better, having won just three matches itself. It was a particularly disappointing effort from Carlton last week, having been comfortably beaten by another lowly side in Brisbane, so expect experienced Blues such as Marc Murphy and Matthew Kreuzer to drive their side to respond. With brilliant young duo in Patrick Cripps and Charlie Curnow, the Blues have star power, but their side falls away in terms of talent very quickly. Meanwhile, the Saints have shown improved form after a dire start to the season, and going down to Port Adelaide in South Australia is nothing to be ashamed of. Their forward line has kicked more than 80 points just three times this year but Carlton has allowed more points than any other team, so that will be an intriguing aspect of the contest.
