AFL Live 2014 St Kilda Saints vs Collingwood Magpies Live Games are kick off friday 30 may 2014 online, Etihad Stadium, Melbourne, 19:50 AEDT.
St Kilda’s injury list and you see that it’s decimated but they look set to welcome back David Armitage from a knee complaint. James Gwilt, Sam Fisher, Sam Gilbert, Tom Hickey and Jarryn Geary are all out. Whilst the Pies will be without defender Nathan Brown who was ruled out for the rest of the year with a shoulder injury – Lachie Keefe looks set to earn a recall to replace him. Whilst Taylor Adams, Patrick Karnezis and Ben Kennedy impressed in the reserves. Ben Reid is still a few weeks away.
After a promising start to the year, the Saints have fallen in a heap having suffered four consecutive losses. They got off to a slow start against the Suns but were competitive in stages before having the bye last week. The Magpies have won five of their last six matches including a gutsy eight point victory over the Eagles last Saturday and sit sixth on the ladder.
These two sides have not met for over a year when the Pies beat St Kilda by 26 points. Collingwood kicked 10 goals to six after half-time to run out easy winners. Scott Pendlebury was best a field with 28 touches and two goals whilst Travis Cloke kicked four majors. For the Saints, Joey Montagna had 30 disposals and captain Nick Riewoldt kicked four.
