The high-flying St Kilda Saints face one of their biggest tests of the season, going up against the Geelong Cats at The Gabba. Join The Roar for live scores from 6:10pm (AEST).
They were made to work for it, but St Kilda secured their fourth consecutive win after seeing off a gallant Gold Coast outfit by four points on Thursday night. The high-scoring Saints have won six of their last seven matches and could move into second on the ladder with a win tonight.
Geelong, on the other hand, could rocket all the way from sixth to third if they get up. The Cats got back on the winners’ list with a 33-point win over North Melbourne on Wednesday, but have alternated wins and losses since a three-game winning streak earlier in the year.
St Kilda have had a tough time against Geelong since their famous meeting in the 2009 grand final. Despite beating the Cats twice in 2010, the Saints have just one win and a draw in their last ten meetings. Both clubs have won on four of their last five visits to The Gabba.
