Game Chat – St Kilda vs Geelong

Written by Thommo on August 10 2020

Where and When: GABBA, Monday 10 August at 6:10pm (AEST)

Last time they met: Geelong 12.12 (84) def St Kilda 8.9 (57) at the Cattery.

What does it mean for St Kilda: The Saints have been on fire over the last month and defeating a good side like the Cats will be the icing on the cake, not to mention it will maintain a top 4 spot.

What does it mean for Geelong: The Cats are stuck in a win, loss, win, loss cycle at the momebt and they need to break that pattern to jump back into the top 4. If they lose, they could drop as low as 7th and from there life on the road could get tricky.

Supercoach Watch: There is a lot of SC relevance in this match with Dangerfield, Duncan, Stewart, Steele, Billings, Marshall, etc playing. As if we needed a reason to watch this match!

Thommo Watch: I traded in Stewart last week for an ordinary return so I have my fingers crossed he’ll show something this week.

Thommo’s Tip: Saints by 6 points.

  1. Strange decision, especially against a team with no genuine ruck. Saw what they did to Port with Lycett out.


    1. Ryder was always due for a rest in the condensed fixture, his TOG was getting as low as 65%. Will be back next round.


  2. Wasn’t confident Schoenberg would be selected this week so went early on Bytel. Hope he keeps going, a nice 80 on debut would do


  3. never been a big fan of hawkins , dead time goal kicker
    quite over rated before this season imo
    looks like he’s really put the work in this year
    very impressive strength , tank & covering a lot more ground
    good chance win the coleman from here i recon


  4. Will put scores up for half time soon…

    Now that tomorrow night’s teams are in (thanks Chaos Theory) I am considering trading out Budarick for Schoenberg. I have only made 1 trade this round, and it would be purely done for cash for next week, to assist in trading in a premium player. Regardless of whether I keep Budarick or trade in Scholeberg, they will be on my bench for the remainder of this round, so not needed on field, and already have playing emergencies. Is this worth a trade? I will have 10 left if I do this.

    TU – Trade Budarick to Schoenberg – he’s basically at his BE and can be culled OR

    TD – Hold the trade – wait for Wicks or Bytel next week instead, and Pickett can possible be traded out instead or as well.


    1. for me, for what its worth, I plan to hold Budarick through to the end.
      He seems to be best 22, has dual status and can be used as we move down the track and teams rest players etc closer to the finals … while he may only get 40-50 each game, it could be valuable in the end … and his DPP may allow you to also make use of him for other Emergencies scores, depending on your structures …


  5. Half Time – Geelong 7.5.47 to St Kilda 4.6.30. First gamer Bytel on 43, another one to consider in your midfield for next week.

  8. Was disappointed with watching that game. Was expecting a great game but this was just all Geelong. Glad I dont have any Saint players for SC as none cracked the tonne tonight. Only real positive was Bytel with 70


  9. Any reason why Supercoach have locked in the unscaled points for this game? There was still at least 170 points to be given out.
    Edit: Just ignore me. I was being impatient
