THE TEAM NEWS

ST. KILDA

  • St. Kilda were unable to build on their first win of the AFL season against Western Bulldogs as they were well beaten by Collingwood last week with another tough game lying in wait here.
  • The Saints were on the end of a big scoreline in the first half with the Magpies building a 64-26 lead and St. Kilda managed just 11 points in the second half as they succumbed to a big defeat.
  • Despite the disappointing display last week, the Saints have decided against wielding the axe with just the one change made with Nick Hind dropping out in place of Josh Battle.

RICHMOND

  • Richmond’s long unbeaten run came to a halt as they were beaten by Hawthorn last week which was their first defeat in over a year and the reigning premiers will be keen to respond here.
  • Their run of 13 consecutive wins was ended by Collingwood in their previous game as they were held to a draw but they could not extend their unbeaten streak after a very poor first quarter left them with a mountain to climb.
  • Trailing 1-33, the Tigers struggled to hit back and their poor showing has resulted in four changes with Dustin Martin, Kamdyn McIntosh, Liam Baker and Toby Nankervis replacing Daniel Rioli, Ivan Soldo, Jack Graham and Marlion Pickett.

THE PREDICTION

Richmond’s first defeat in 15 matches was a shock one as their shoddy start to their game with Hawthorn was punished. They will now hope to get back to winning ways as they travel to St. Kilda who were outplayed by Collingwood last week. The Saints have lost all four of their recent meetings with the Tigers and the reigning premiers should be able to make it five in a row by putting last week’s defeat behind them.
