THE TEAM NEWS

ST. KILDA

  • St. Kilda Saints failed to build on their two wins in their previous matches as they fell to defeat against Adelaide Crows, a result which leaves them with too much to do to make the top 8.
  • The Saints are not officially out of the running for a spot in the finals but they will know that it is out of their reach and it may allow them to play with more freedom for the final few matches.
  • They make numerous changes to the side from last week’s effort with Jade Gresham and Doulton Langlands dropping out through injury whilst Matthew Parker, Daniel McKenzie and Nathan Brown are all dropped with Jack Newnes, Dan Hannebery, Jack Steven, Blake Acres and Ben Paton coming in.

FREMANTLE

  • Fremantle Dockers secured an important win last week to keep their hopes of a spot in the finals alive but they must realistically win-out from this point if they are to force their way into a place in the top 8 come the end of the regular season.
  • The Dockers produced a brilliant display to defeat top of the ladder Geelong Cats and if they can replicate that level of performance until the end of the campaign, there is a good chance they will feature in the finals.
  • It was unlikely that Fremantle would make any changes to the side this week and after avoiding any injuries or suspensions, they have done just that as they prepare for another crucial contest.

THE PREDICTION

St. Kilda will not be playing in the finals this year with last week’s loss against Adelaide Crows leaving them with too much to do. Fremantle on the other hand will still believe they can force their way into the reckoning but must build on last week’s brilliant win over Geelong Cats. The Dockers will fancy their chances against a much-changed side for the Saints and can get the win they need to keep themselves in the running for the top 8.
