St Kilda's finals hopes need an injection of life when they take on Hawthorn at Metricon Stadium on Sunday. Seventh placed Saints have lost the last two to allow the chaser pack to close, but they get a perfect opportunity to return to winning ways against the misfiring Hawks.

St Kilda Form & Team News


Back-to-back defeats to Brisbane Lions and Melbourne Demons have seen Saints slip towards the clutches of the sides just outside the eight. The losses were by just two points and three points respectively, and both games could have ended in wins.

They were on the wrong side of the result on both occasions though and have now lost three of their last four. They were thumped by Geelong Cats before defeating the Essendon Bombers.

St Kilda make two changes with Jonathon Marsh back for the first time since Round 6 and Jack Lonie also coming back in. Injured Tim Membrey is out and Nicholas Hind is left out.

The St Kilda team is below:

B: J.Geary, C.Wilkie, N.Coffield
HB: B.Paton, D.Howard, H.Clark
C: B.Hill S.Ross, J.Billings
HF: Z.Jones, M.King, D.Butler
F: D.Kent, R.Marshall, J.Battle
FOLL: P.Ryder, J.Steele, J.Sinclair
I/C: E.Phillips, J.Marsh, J.Lonie, B.Long

Hawthorn Form & Team News


Hawthorn were the unwanted recipients of becoming the first team to lose to Adelaide Crows this season when they went down 83-48. It is now five defeats in a row and losses in nine of the Hawks' last 10 games.
