St Kilda vs Fremantle Dockers Tips

A true ‘all or nothing’ match hosted in Tasmania concludes the home and away season. Fremantle will move into the eight with a win, while St Kilda need a big win and an unlikely turn around in percentage.

I'm tipping Fremantle to edge a thriller but for both sides to miss out of the finals.

  • St Kilda have lost 4 of their last 5 matches.
  • St Kilda have never won at Blundstone Arena. 
  • Fremantle Dockers have won 3 out of their last 4 matches against St Kilda. 
  • Fremantle Dockers won the last match 79-73 at Metricon Stadium against St Kilda. 
  • Fremantle Dockers have won 2 of their last 3 matches.

Head to Head

In recent history, the Saints and the Dockers have end matches in tight margins. The last three have been decided by a goal or less. Fremantle boast the recent winning form, but St Kilda hold a slight all-time winning advantage of 20-17. 

St Kilda Form

The odds were well and truly against St Kilda heading into these final week of the season .
A tough loss to Geelong last weekend was a fourth loss in the last five matches. A poor percentage makes it near impossible to make it back to back finals appearances for the Saints. 

St Kilda Team News

Ruckman Patty Ryder remains out and Max King and Darragh Joyce also miss this weekend's game due to injury. 

Ben Long, Paul Hunter and Jack Bytel are the ins for the Saints.

St Kilda Team List 

B: Howard, Wilkie, Long
HB: Sinclair, Webster, McKenzie
C: Ross, Hannebery, Hill
HF: Butler, Marshall, Kent
F: Higgins, Membrey, Sharman
FOLL: Hunter, Steele, Jones
I/C: Coffield, Bytel, Crouch, Clavarino

Fremantle Dockers Form 

Despite a poor percentage, Fremantle have a chance to make finals if they beat the Saints and other results go their way. 

An ideal weekend could see the Dockers finish 7th however a worst-case scenario would see them finish 12th. 

The Dockers finally overcame interstate foes last week, beating West Coast Eagles by 15 points to keep their finals hopes alive.

Fremantle Dockers Team News

Connor Blakeley sustained a hamstring injury last week against West Coast. Lachie Schultz is also ruled out.

However, in-form Andrew Brayshaw will move straight back into the lineup after serving his one-match suspension. 

Fremantle Dockers Team List 

B: Walker, Logue, Ryan
HB: Young, Pearce, Aish
C: Tucker, Mundy, Brayshaw
HF: Switkowski, Taberner, Colyer
F: Schultz, Treacy, Crowden
FOLL: Darcy, Serong, Cerra
I/C: Henry, Banfield, Meek, Watson
EMG: O’Driscoll, Acres, Hughes, Western
