The never-say-die Saints will be hoping to pick off another serious flag contender following last week’s stunning blowout over the Swans.

St Kilda’s pressure was enormous as they snapped a three-game skid to keep their season alive, a game plan Brett Ratten will be hoping his side can execute again on Saturday against Geelong.

Almost in reverse, the Cats had their five-game winning streak snapped against the Giants after getting off to an uncharacteristically slow start.

Geelong never really made their way back from a three-goal quarter-time deficit, but there is good news on the injury front with Jeremy Cameron and Patrick Dangerfield both a chance to play this week.

Fans of the Saints can attest to how unpredictable they’ve been this season, so it’s no real surprise to find them as +25.5 point underdogs on the road in Geelong.

The status of Cameron and Dangerfield will go a long way to determining the outcome of this game, but if both play, you have to fancy Geelong to bounce back.

The Cats are 6-1 over the last calendar year on the back of a loss, while they’ve also won five straight over the Saints dating back to 2017.

Verdict

St Kilda’s shoddy kicking proved costly against the Cats when they met back in Round 9 as Geelong carved them up through the midfield.

If Chris Scott’s top two starts play, we might see a similar story unfold.
