St Kilda vs Geelong Match Up

As the ladder supports, it looks a tough game to to split which is furthered by the fact that these two teams play very contrasting game styles.

St Kilda have completely re-invented themselves in season 2020 with a hard running and quick style of play making them one of the best teams to watch in the competition.

Geelong on the other hand have a much more measured approach across the board and in this contest, they will be looking to control the footy and deny the Saints running game.

It looms as an intrgiuing battle with both teams well in top four contention and with the Saints, it'll be interesting to see if they can keep this momentum going against an experienced Cats line-up that is just starting to get warm and this includes their main forward Tom Hawkins who has kicked multiple goals in 5 of the last 6 fixtures for Geelong.
