Etihad Stadium


Geelong find themselves 4-0, and on top of the ladder. However, there are still doubters who believe they are yet to fully prove themselves.

This week will be another good test, they play a confident St Kilda side who is coming off two wins in a row.

Fans will be hoping for another epic clash, with their past two games being incredibly tight. In 2016 the Saints claimed a three-point win, while in 2015 the two sides drew.

With Lachie Henderson likely to play on Riewoldt, Chris Scott will have to decide if he will keep Harry Taylor forward, or move him back into defence to combat the potentially lethal Saints’ forward six.

There could be an upset on the cards here. Playing at Etihad and the Saints’ great form against the Cats in the past, suggests they could get over the line.
