AFL Live St Kilda Saints vs North Melbourne Kangaroos Live Streaming Free 2018 Regular Seasons week 23 match will be kick off at Etihad Stadium, Melbourne, VIC, Australia, Sunday 26 August 2018 online, 16:40 pm (AEDT) and its broadcast on Channel Seven, Foxtell.
It was the Good Friday match against North Melbourne in Round 2 that sent the Saints season into freefall. Sitting at 1-0 and expected to make the finals, the Saints dished up one of the worst performances I have ever seen, kicking 5.13 and finishing 52-point losers.
The Saints wouldn’t win again for another 11 weeks, with a 71-point loss to the Sydney Swans at Etihad Stadium the lowest moment for the club. The Saints enjoyed a good month of footy after that, with victories against Gold Coast, Melbourne and Carlton all in a four-week timeframe.
Again, the Saints again fell away. Losses to Western Bulldogs, Richmond, GWS and Essendon all by 25 points or more had the head coach Alan Richardson in hot water. They showed up on Saturday night against the Hawks, losing by just four points in a nail-biting finish.
North Melbourne cannot make Finals, however, they still have plenty to play for, with star forward Ben Brown only two goals behind Jack Riewoldt in the Coleman Medal race. Against a St Kilda defence who has allowed over 100 points 11 times this season, Brown will fancy his chances kicking a bag.
It’s been a good season for the Kangaroos, who have won 11 matches and have lost four by 10 points or less.
Ben Jacobs (concussion) and Taylor Garner (hamstring) are likely to not return in Round 23 now that finals are not a possibility for the Kangaroos. Jarryn Geary (concussion) should be fit to play on Sunday, whilst Jake Carlisle (back) is still listed as a test.
