Game notes:  Geelong moved into top spot after three straight wins against premiership contenders Greater Western Sydney, North Melbourne and the Western Bulldogs. Despite those victories, the clash against St Kilda will be critical in such a tightly contested season. The Saints will pose a tough challenge, having shown they can play very good football in Victoria. Not having beaten a team in the top eight will make Alan Richardson’s men particularly determined to claim a scalp. On the other hand, Chris Scott will be wary his side recently dropped games to Collingwood and Carlton, two clubs in the vicinity of St Kilda’s ladder position. Of particular interest in the clash will be the potential match-up of Patrick Dangerfield and Jack Steven, with both in spectacular form. The ability of each to explode away from stoppages could make for a riveting highlight reel.

The 6 Points:

1. Geelong ranks second in the competition for inside-50s with 57.8 per game, while St Kilda is No.13, averaging 50.3 per game.

2. The Saints haven’t beaten the Cats since the 2010 qualifying final at the MCG.

3. Geelong averages more centre clearances than any their team in the competition. The Cats are led by their skipper Joel Selwood, who is ranked third in the AFL for that statistic, and Patrick Dangerfield, who is ranked 10th.

4. When these teams have collided at Etihad Stadium, Geelong has won seven compared to St Kilda’s six, with one draw.

5. The Cats take more contested marks than any other team, while the Saints are ranked eighth.

6. Dangerfield has shot to the top of the AFL Player Ratings after brilliant performances against North Melbourne and the Western Bulldogs (piling on 229 and 173 for SuperCoaches)!

MJ’s tip: Geelong by 22

  4. How about the Minge!?

    Cats are a marked team by others and don’t turn up if they aren’t a challenger. Too many egos? It’s becoming a problem.

  7. That was one of the Saints best wins ever, might have a all nighter. Umps made errors on both sides so no use complaining.

    1. How good was that win Sodes! Our Saints are back on the rise. Going to be back challenging in a couple of years if we can pick up a few great free agents to cover for Roo and Montagna retiring.

      1. As a Cats fan watching the it with my Saints fan mate, we were both left shaking our heads all night calling out neutral umpiring atrocities. Some of the calls were truly dumbfounding

      2. Wrapped in that win Andy B , 2 years and we will be up there. Like the coach and some of them young fella’s will be champs. Geez the young kids today are good, watching the game thursday night there was a few promising players but my favourite player on the night was Lever, he will be in all our sides in 2 years. I’m amazed how good these young kids are.

  8. Great game/score by Riewoldt today. Has a good upcoming fixture with 6 more games at Eithiad where he averages 120+ this year and should be priced around 515-520,000 with a breakeven around 140-150 next week. Would love to give him a spot in my forward line but means I have to forego one of Dusty or Deledio.

  9. Delimma, my opponent has 114 pt lead but has made Danger captain. We have 2 live differntials I have Gibson and Ablett(c) he has Joyce and Ablett.If I take Dangers score as C it should reduce his lead down to 4 and then I’ll have a differential of Gibson against Joyce
    TU Make Danger captain
    TD Keep Ablett as captain

Game Chat – St Kilda v Geelong

Written by Thommo on August 22 2015

Like Adelaide, the Cats will seek a big win tonight to stay in touch with the Crows and in contention for the 8.

They face a tough task against the Saints at Etihad. St Kilda can trouble any team on their day but consistency still eludes the young side.

Can the Saints pull off one more upset for the season or will the Cats get a much needed percentage boost?

Watch for big Jason Holmes from the US playing his first game for the Saints.

Thommo’s tip: Geelong by 25 points.
