The Geelong Cats were dealt a major blow by the Collingwood Magpies last week as they were beaten 109-101. Facing elimination from the finals picture, can the reigning premiers claim a crucial victory?

Head to Head


The Cats hammered the Saints 110-65 when the pair met in August last year, with this their seventh win in their last 10 meetings. 

The Saints have only managed to win twice in their last 10 meetings, with one game ending in a draw. 

St Kilda Form 


The St Kilda Saints have been battling incredibly hard for a top-eight spot, with a 93-57 win over the Richmond Tigers seeing them bounce back from a disappointing loss to the Carlton Blues. 

With three wins and three defeats in their last six, the Saints have managed to remain in the finals spots and sit sixth on the ladder. 

While they are currently on track for a finals spot, the Saints know they are only four points clear of Essendon in ninth. 

St Kilda Team News


The Saints are unchanged from last week.

Geelong Cats Form 


The Geelong Cats have not been good enough this season, and they look like they are on course to miss out on a place in the finals.

Three defeats to the Brisbane Lions, Fremantle Dockers and Collingwood Magpies have come alongside a single win over the Port Adelaide Power.

The Cats are 11th on the ladder with the reigning premiers needing a win here to boost their finals hopes.
