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.
