St Kilda

North Melbourne

Etihad Stadium


North Melbourne again showed glimpses of brilliance last week, however were blown out of the water for the rest of the game. Before their match-up earlier this year, the Roos had actually won their past six against the Saints.

Nick Riewoldt is likely to return for his last home game, however former Bulldog Koby Stevens is in doubt after suffering a head knock last week.

St. Kilda should have the upper hand in this game, watch out for how they defend Ben Brown who is the clear focal point of the Kangaroo’s forward set-up. Look for Nathan Brown to pick him up, and if North Melbourne are poor with their inside 50 entry, Carlisle could have a big day.

Tip: Saints by 27
