Game Chat – St Kilda vs Hawthorn

Written by Thommo on May 1 2021

Where and when:  Marvel Stadium, Saturday 1st May at 4:35pm (AEST)

Last time they met: Rd 16, 2020: St Kilda 11.14 (80) def 9.12 (66) at Metricon Stadium.

The Hawks led this game early and stayed close all day but they just couldn’t match it with the Saints after half-time. With Membrey and King out, Marshall played the role of tall-forward well with 2 goals while Hill, Ross and Jones were best through the middle. For the Hawks, Tom Mitchell had plenty of the ball as usual but unfortunately they lost Worpel to a season-ending shoulder injury.

Match Preview: The Hawks were hardly convincing in knocking off Adelaide last week while the Saints were poor in a big loss to Port Adelaide. Fans have few expectations on the rebuilding Hawks this season, especially with O’Meara out injured, but the Saints were expected to push for finals in 2021 and they will want to win this game and get their season back on track. If last season’s clash is anything to go by, this will be a fast and high-scoring shoot out.

Thommo Watch: 

Hawthorn – My boy Tommy hasn’t been rewarded for his high disposal counts this season; hopefully that changes this week.

St Kilda – He has been playing a lone hand, has Jack Steele, and hopefully he can continue his stellar season today.

Thommo’s Tip: St Kilda by 18 points (tipping record 8/18).

  1. SC final scaling has not happened for pies Gold Coast game???scores are green, game moved to played games but only2925 points awarded.
    Will be pissed if Grundy scales up and I can’t loop him


    1. still the same at this stage … Grundy was ripped off by CD big time in the match and particularly in the last few minutes of the last quarter … earned a free kick, and kicked a goal and his score did not move …


  2. I want to take Grundys score as VC but I need help…

    If I have the E on Highmore (DNP) and Chapman do I still get Chapmans score?

    I know it’s lowest scoring player but does DNP count?


  3. I flew down from Sydney to watch my hawkers and I am so sad. Abysmal performance with no ticker. Sigh
