St Kilda got themselves back in touch with the top 8 after a 17-point win over North Melbourne last Friday night.
The Saints snapped a three-game losing streak when they held of the Kangaroos in a scrappy clash. It was a crucial victory that squared their season at 6-6, but it came against a flat North Melbourne team that offered little resistance, with a wasteful St Kilda still unable to kill off its opponents until late.
After the Saints opened up a 42-point lead early in the fourth quarter, the Kangaroos came to life for a rare period on Friday night, kicking five late goals to cut the margin to a flattering 17 points. Seb Ross was the star for the Saints, using the ball with the poise missing from so many others to finish with a game-high 32 possessions and five clearances in a best-on-ground performance.
Despite a late comeback from the Gold Coast Suns, they couldn’t get the four points when the Carlton Blues secured a thrilling 10-point win. The Suns were trailing the entire game and fought back to take the lead in the final term before the Blues steadied.
It was a major blow for the Suns with Michael Barlow stretchered off the ground halfway through the final term after suffering a broken leg. Jarryd Lyons was impressive with 24 disposals and two goals whilst the master Gary Ablett secured 25 possessions.
A return for forward Paddy McCartin must made after he was named among the emergencies after overcoming bone bruising in his knee, with the Saints naming an unchanged side.
There is a huge blow for the Suns as they lose Gary Ablett to a calf injury and Brandon Matera (foot), Kade Kolodjashnij (concussion), Michael Barlow (broken leg) and Aaron Hall (hamstring) are also ruled out. Matt Rosa serves a suspension and Mackenzie Willis is omitted. Running defender Jarrod Harbrow returns after serving his club-imposed two-week ban for drink driving, while Rory Thompson, Touk Miller, Callum Ah Chee, Brayden Forini, Matt Shaw and Darcy McPherson all come in to the much-changed side.
St Kilda and Gold Coast meet for the 10th time and the Saints hold a narrow advantage, winning five games to four.
