AFL Live St Kilda Saints vs Sydney Swans Stream AFL 2017 Regular Seasons Round 09 match will be kick off at Etihad Stadium stadium, Melbourne, Australia, Saturday 20 May 2017 online, 13:45 pm (AEDT) and its broadcast on Channel Seven, Foxtell.
One of the big games of AFL Round 9 will be when St Kilda play host to the Sydney Swans at Etihad Stadium on Saturday afternoon, May 20.
Both sides have been playing some great football over the past couple of weeks and this one shapes as a beauty.
The action gets underway at 1.45PM and will be broadcast on Fox Footy. AFL Live Vision is also available to ALL CrownBet members. Every Match, wherever you are.
St Kilda are one of the form sides of the competition and have won their past three, accounting for Hawthorn, GWS and Carlton. The GWS and Carlton games were held at the venue for Saturday’s game, Etihad Stadium.
Sydney endured a horror start to the year, dropping their first six, but have bounced back with emphatic wins against Brisbane and North Melbourne.
Their 42-point triumph over the Kangaroos was not too dissimilar to some of their performances last year when they claimed the minor premiership.
Luke Parker, Josh Kennedy and Daniel Hannebery combined for over 100 possessions, while Isaac Heeney played his best game since returning from glandular fever earlier on this year.
With those players in full flight, the Saints may have some trouble matching the Swans in the middle of the ground.
Alan Richardson’s side will need big games from Jack Steven and Sebastian Ross, who feature in the top 15 players in the competition for total disposals, while it will be interesting to see if Jack Billings can continue his brilliant recent form.
The exciting youngster kicked five goals in St Kilda’s 19-point win over Carlton last weekend, feeding off the likes of Josh Bruce, Tim Membrey and Nick Riewoldt in the Saints forward 50.
At the other end of the ground, Lance Franklin will be a focal point for Sydney, as will Sam Reid, who booted three majors against the Roos in Round 8.
An interesting aspect of this game is that the Saints enjoy the home ground advantage. Alan Richardson’s side have won four of their six games at the venue this season, while the Swans are one from two.
