St Kilda vs GWS Giants Tips


The St Kilda Saints arrive for their first match of the finals on the back of a 72-60 defeat at the hands of the Brisbane Lions, although a place in September was already assured.

The GWS Giants come into the finals on the back of a two-game winning run that was extended after their brilliant 105-73 win over the Carlton Blues at the end of August. They are the form team of the two.

Head to Head


The Saints secured a thrilling 92-80 win over the Giants when the pair met back in May, with this making it four wins in a row for St Kilda. 

In their last 10 meetings, the Saints have won five matches, while the Giants have won four times, with the other game ending in a draw. 

St Kilda Form 


The St Kilda Saints managed to finish in sixth on the ladder at the end of a season in which many questioned whether they could go the distance. 

They had 13 wins alongside 10 defeats and it meant the Saints finished a victory clear of the Bulldogs in ninth. 

A 70-62 defeat to the Brisbane Lions in their final regular season game will not worry the Saints as they pushed their top-4 opponents close.

St Kilda Team News


Jack Hayes (injured) and Liam Stocker (omitted) miss out, with the Saints calling on Seb Ross and Max King to return to the side.

GWS Giants Form


The GWS Giants made it two wins in a row as they ended their home and away season with victories over the Essendon Bombers and the Carlton Blues. 

Their 162-36 humiliation of the Essendon Bombers was one of the performances of the season, and they were able to back it up with a powerful 105-73 win over the Blues the following week. 

Despite finishing in seventh on the ladder with 13 wins from 23, the Giants will fancy themselves against any side.

GWS Giants Team News


Sam Taylor and Finn Callaghan are recalled to the Giants side at the expense of Ryan Angwin and Toby McMulling. 

Tom Bedford is free to play after a one-game ban was overturned.
