    Match preview:

    The final game of Saturday’s trio will be played in Melbourne, as a struggling St Kilda Saints host the Sydney Swans at Etihad Stadium. Join The Roar for live commentary and scores from 7:25pm AEST.

    This shapes as an intriguing contest. The Saints’ year, once looking so promising, has eventuated into anything but.

    They haven’t won since their Round 1 win, have drawn with GWS and lost everything else. That doesn’t bode well for them, given Sydney’s recent record against them.

    However, despite the string of defeats, they have shown improved form lately – including periods of dominance against the premiers a fortnight ago, and surprising West Coast with a powerful surge late last week.

    Sydney’s record has been a lot better – they’re sitting 8-3, but it’s impossible to say they’re at their best.

    They’ve won their last two – over Carlton and the Lions – but neither victory was dominant, which might be giving their opposition some hope tonight.

    The Saints’ midfield has nothing on the Swans – even though the Swans’ hasn’t been at their dominant best of late.

    Jack Steven has been admirable lately, and youngster Ed Phillips has shown signs, but Sydney’s mids including Isaac Heeney and Dan Hannebery will outclass them.

    Both teams have made changes aplenty. The Saints have sensationally dropped Jack Billings, while also omitting Brandon White and Rowan Marshall. Pressingly, they’ve also lost skipper Jarryn Gearry.

    Nathan Brown, Luke Dunstan, Josh Battle and Nick Coffield return to the side.

    Sydney has rested Kieren Jack, and omitted youngsters Nic Newman and Ryley Stoddart. Tom McCartin, Tom Papley and Daniel Robinson return.

    Sydney’s won the past eight clashes against the Saints – regularly smashing them in contests that are supposed to be close encounters.

    I’m not expecting this one to be that close, though, and Sydney – by all conventional logic – should win.

    Logic isn’t always the barometer for success in this game, however, and the Saints have shown improved form. Still, though, the Swans to win.

    Sydney by 21 points

      The back office staff don’t seem to have the guts to sack coaches any more.

      Richardson not cut out to coach.

      Damian Burke on ABC radio calling for Benny Dixon’s sacking as the Saints’ goalkicking coach – fair enough I reckon

        I’m not necessarily sure he’d be the only coach they should sack, but he should definitely be the the first.

      Thanks for joining me tonight. Catch me again on Monday for the Queen’s Birthday clash between Melbourne and Collingwood. See you then, and let’s hope that games is a cracker.

      Enjoy the long weekend, everybody!

      39 points in 2nd half Swans?!! Not good enough. Stil nowhere near the level of the top 3 teams

      At the very least, the Saints dispelled an even bigger loss with some encouraging last quarter play – matching the Swans, booting three goals to the Sydney’s three. Nonetheless, it’s annoying even tying that – given how bad they were for much of the night.

      Sydney face the Eagles next Friday – that’ll be a cracker – whilst the Saints face the equally awful Suns in what could be a very bad game this time next week.

      St Kilda: 7.13 (55)

      Swans obviously dont care about percentage. Whereas the good teams would keep the foot down, swans have decided to ease up and give the saints opportunities for some goals. This just proves that they have little to no killer instinct

      There’s full time.

      It’s the Swans by 71 points, but it could’ve been a much bigger margin.

            They had the opportunity to go for the throat and they couldnt do that. They wont want to ease up next week

      Very late behind to the Swans through Lloyd.

      Sydney displaying their best end-to-end play, and it’ll be Ronke who flies high to take the mark! His shot misses, disappointingly, though.

      Lonie blazes of halfback, passing it to Steven who takes a great run down the wing, eventually sending it to Membrey.

      Membrey will have a shot – but it doesn’t make the distance, and it’ll bounce out of bounds.

      Some good play in the lead-up to that shot.

      St Kilda: 7.13 (55)

      Some good news for the hosts – Josh Battle sends his second major of the night through the big sticks.
