The St Kilda Saints need to get their season back on track, and they’ll back themselves against the freefalling Hawthorn Hawks at Metricon Stadium. Join The Roar for live scores from 1:05pm (AEST).
Looking like a lock for finals a month ago, three losses in four games suddenly has St Kilda teetering. They were crushed by Geelong in Round 11, but back-to-back single-digit losses against Brisbane and Melbourne has them in trouble. With plenty of teams in the hunt, they need to get back on the wagon.
Hawthorn, however, can’t wait for 2020 to end. They’ve been in woeful form since the first four rounds of the season and hit a new last week after becoming the first team all season to lose to Adelaide. Alastair Clarkson will rev the team up, but they just don’t appear to have anything left.
The Saints got up in a thriller in last year’s only meeting, although the Hawks had won nine of ten meetings prior to that. This is only St Kilda’s third game at Metricon Stadium this year while, amazingly, it’s Hawthorn’s first.
