St Kilda Saintsvs Western Bulldogs Who could forget their meeting earlier this season, when the Saints came back from a 55-point deficit to snatch a 7-point win. The Dogs are in the finals race and cannot afford to let this one slip.
The Saints will be forced to omit rookie Jack Sinclair due to the AFL’s outdated rookie list rules. Jack Billings will also not play whilst veterans Sam Fisher and Nick Riewoldt are both likely to play. For the Dogs, Stewart Crameri and Dale Morris are both available for selection whilst Ayce Cordy, Shane Biggs and Lin Jong pushed their case with standout performances in the VFL. Both teams are extremely healthy with the Saints only without Billings from their best 22 and the Dogs are missing Tom Liberatore and Clay Smith from there’s.

Bursting with confidence after bashing up on the Lions, the Dogs will be keen to atone for their meltdown against St Kilda in round 6. If they are to be genuinely considered as a finals chance, they should put away the Saints with relative authority on Saturday night and that is what The Wolf will be backing. In recent times, the Saints have had no match-up for the deadly Jake Stringer whilst Macrae, Dahlhaus, The Bont should run amock in the midfield and propel the Dogs into the eight.
