Game notes: St Kilda looked like world-beaters when it smashed Richmond in round 16 but failed a huge test when Essendon smacked the Saints under the lights of Friday night footy. Now they face the rampant Swans at the SCG, a team they haven’t beaten in over five years. Sydney stars Lance Franklin, Josh Kennedy, Luke Parker, Isaac Heeney and Dane Rampe are all in outstanding form, and veterans Kieren Jack and Jarrad McVeigh have also found some touch after early season injury worries, so it’s no surprise that John Longmire’s team has won nine of its past 10 matches. If the Saints have any hopes of leaving the harbour city with a vital four points they’ll need to use their speed to run the home side ragged, and do it both ways, to help defenders Dylan Roberton and Jake Carlisle curb the influence of Franklin.
