What an intruding Round 3 matchup. St Kilda will be looking to bounce back after their horror loss on Good Friday against an injury-riddled Adelaide Crows at Etihad Stadium on Saturday Night.
With the Commonwealth Games on Channel 7, the action can be seen on 7mate or Fox Footy live from 7:00pm (AEST).
What a difference two weeks can make in football. Before the season started, this St Kilda v Adelaide matchup would’ve probably been considered as the match of the round, with heavy finals expectations placed on this Saints squad.
To show just how highly this match was rated, it was giving the free to air nod, ahead of the Sydney Derby, which has been pushed to Fox Footy.
The Saints ‘got away’ with a win in Round 1 against the Brisbane Lions, thanks in no small part to gun midfielder Jack Steven, who finished with a game-high 34 possessions and two goals.
The Saints were expected to score an easy win on Good Friday against North Melbourne. With only one match on Good Friday, there were plenty of eyeballs on the match. I’m comfortable saying the first half was the worst half of football I’ve ever watched. Only four goals were scored and many people watching, didn’t bother with the second half.
North Melbourne raised their level in the second half, while the Saints continued to make basic skill errors. Most disappointing for Alan Richardson, the Saints didn’t put any pressure on the Roos, in what was a dismal 52-point defeat.
The Adelaide Crows had a chip on their shoulder against Richmond in Round 2. The Crows were undermanned due to injury, but had something to prove after the happenings in September last year.
Rory Laird and Josh Jenkins were the stars for the Crows. Laird dominated, racking up 42 possessions. Much was made after Jenkins ‘went missing’ in the Grand Final. He bounced back well, booting five goals while Tex Walker kicked four in his first game back from injury.
