Game Chat – St Kilda v Essendon

Written by Father Dougal on August 16 2020

Where and When:The Gabba, Sunday 18 August at 3:35pm (AEST)
Last time they met: St Kilda 10.16 (76) def Essendon 9.11 (65) Round 2, 2019.

What does it mean for St Kilda: If they win they move into 14th, and clearly separate from the pack. If they are who they wan to be, they should be able to polish off the Bombers no problem. IF they don’t, then maybe there are who they are and not who they want to be.
What does it mean for Essendon: A win and they go up two spots to 8th. Keeps their finals hopes alive. A loss and they sit at 10th, and maybe go down more by the end of the round. The Jekyll Bombers win and make finals the Hyde bombers lose and finish too high for good draft picks but out of finals.

Supercoach Watch Saints:  Steel! Also Butler, Marshall, Billings, Ryder, and Bytel.
Supercoach Watch Bombers:   Merrett is still both in teams and on radars. Devon Smith, bastard, maybe the bench will motivate him! Ridley, Saad, some others maybe…they are all auditioning for a spot in teams ’cause their bye is done.
Father Dougal Watch:  Draper!  Yeah, we all want to see how he goes, extra after the week off.

Father Dougal’s Tip: If both teams Jekyll or both teams Hyde, then it could be a good match. But if they mismatch could be a slaughter. I’m delaying….Saints by 10.

  1. Champion Data crashed, so they are unable to update the scores. Plus what is the need of having them instantly? You can’t really do anything with them so it doesn’t mean that much

  6. Is Parish good enough for F6? My final forward spot.
    Thinking he’s had his bye and can hit triple digits at time.


    1. He is on a steady upwards path and attending quite a few cb’s. Very worthy f6 at his price, and quite a pod. I swapped that stain D Smith for him this week.


  7. After some thought, traded McGrath to Steele two games back knowing that I’d be copping a bye out of Steele but hoping his scores would make up the difference…
    McGrath has gone 124 & 113,
    Steele 86 & 92
    Them’s the breaks…
