Game Chat – St Kilda vs Sydney

Written by Thommo on August 1 2020

Where and When: GABBA, Saturday 1 August 2020 at 5:10pm (AEST)

Last Time They Met: Rd 23, 2019: Sydney 17.7 (109) def St Kilda 8.16 (64) at the SCG.

What it means for St Kilda: I wrote last week that they needed to prove they had improved with a big scalp and the duly defeated Port at Adelaide Oval. The only thing left to do after a big win is to back it up with a simple win.

What is means for Sydney: The Swans were happy to grab a win against the rubbish Hawks last week, albeit with a few cheapies from the umps. Two in a row would be nice but Papley will need to play out of his skin again!

Supercoach Watch: A year too late for me, Jack Steele is having his break-out SC season. Lloyd is also doing what he always does; rack up touches. With the exception of a couple of Sydney rookies, is there a lot of interest from a Supercoach perspective?

Thommo Watch: I know we are not meant to wish for negative things, but I’d like a nice hard forward tag on Lloyd to bring his price down!

Thommo’s Tip: St Kilda by 20 points.

    1. King. He’s playing an easier opponent. Don’t see Close casually slotting goals like he did last week. Eagles, unlike Freo, actually defend lol.


      1. Thinking maybe risking King too, GD. Feel like he’s more likely to throw up a 80+ score. Swans defense is actually pretty solid, but he only needs 5-6 touches for a decent score.


    1. Yeah Matt Parker back with his single disposal/behind.
      That’s the right Parker everyone was suggesting right?


  1. Yo, JimmyDee,….next years starting handicap,……..Parker, Townsend, Jones, King, and Co……LOL

  3. I’m Swans fan.

    Zak Jones….what a bull.

    I don’t own him, but I’m a fan. Always have been. One of my favourite players to watch live.

    It’s great to see players thrive in a new team. He’s been driving he Saints mids this year…hard ball gets, decent efficiency.

    Side note…Swans suck ass at the moment.


    1. Yep always good potential, just used to get tagging roles sometimes and disposable was often a little wayward…….but apart from that….bloody good player!!!

  5. Had king all year for mediocre scores,traded him this week!! Wouldn’t be surprised if he goes back to ordinary next week.


  6. I traded King as well but good luck to the young man . Wish him all the best for the test on the season.
