Game Chat – St Kilda vs West Coast

Written by Thommo on April 10 2021

Where and when: Marvel Stadium, Saturday 10th April at 4:35pm (AEST)

Last time they met: Rd 17, 2020: West Coast 9.11 (65) def St Kilda 6.14 (50) at the Gabba.

This was not a pretty game for three quarters! West Coast slowly ground their way to a 2 goal lead at three-quarter time despite missing Sheed, Redden, Shuey and Yeo and also losing McLovin at half-time. However, things were looking grim for the Eagles when StKilda sprang to life in the fourth quarter, kicking the first three goals and taking the lead but the Eagles steadied, piling on the final four goals of the game to lock down their position in the final 8. Tim Kelly starred with 29 possessions and a late goal.

Match Preview: Many footy fans missed how well the Eagles were playing before they dismantled the Power in WA last week. They were unlucky to lose to the Bulldogs at Marvel two weeks ago and are deserved favourites to win this match at the same venue. Not that the Eagles need to do much to defeat the Saints, who have been disappointing.

After a strong pre-season, St Kilda started well with a win against the Giants but they have been horrible since. They look slow and clumsy against the Bombers last week and are in for a shocking season if they don’t lift soon.

Thommo Watch:

St Kilda

Jack Steele is one we don’t own but will want to own soon enough. The Saint I want to see out there is Highmore who seemed very unlucky to be omitted given how rubbish the Saints played without him.

West Coast

Again I don’t own any Eagles but it was nice to see Gaff racking up some cheapies last week. That’s the Gaff we all know and love! With Shuey out again this week, Gaff and Kelly will be super important to the Eagles’s chances.

Thommo’s Tip (The Kiss of Death): West Coast by 12 points (This is getting embarrassing – record 3 from 9)

    1. Isiah Winder
      #57,2020 National Draft

  1. I own Steele Thommo. 😉

    I went him over Oliver. I wanted another V/C option.
    I was tempted to use it this game. Against lesser opposition I would,
    West Coast is a different story.

    I decided to stick with Grundy.

    I think your tip is pretty safe today.


  2. C on highmore…

    Macraes VC 137 the only good result so far for me this week…

    let’s hope Steele can come up with a big score !


  3. Dad is in a bad way. He has kept draper because of other issues. He left C on him by mistake, then switched Flynn E to Marshall who is now his C.
    Dad has taken the cellar keys from Mum. I’m worried about him.
    He was mumbling about not taking English instead of marshall


    1. It doesn’t work that way. If he had C on Draper then will get Double the VC score instead (Gawn). Marshall will come back on and will get his E score.


    1. I also had trouble but refreshed page and scores now came up, but can’t get them for previous games…


  4. My VC Dunkley isn’t enough for a Captain score so need to decide between

    TU: Grundy (tonight at MCG vs GWS – Mumford )
    TD : Gawn tomorrow at the MCG Vs Geelong
