Sydney Swans vs St Kilda Tips


Sydney and St Kilda will face off on Saturday afternoon where both teams come into the match off the back of a win.

Sydney were too good for Carlton last week while St Kilda got the four points against North Melbourne, albeit unconvincingly.

  • The favourite has won each of the last 12 matches between these two sides
  • Sydney have won seven matches this season 
  • Sydney were 45 point winners the last time they clashed at the SCG
  • Sydney has covered the line in seven of their last eight matches against St Kilda

Head to Head


When looking at their recent head to head stats, Sydney lead 4-1, but there most recent clash which was at the Gabba last year, went the way of the Saints, but they were a finals quality team.

This season, both sides have reversed positions and Sydney have the upper hand coming into the match.

Sydney Swans Form


Kicking off the season with seven wins and four losses, that is something the club can hold their head high about after what has been a patchy last couple of years.

They have won three of their last five matches, both losses by under 10 points including to Melbourne who are currently the best side in the competition.

They are a side that is still quite young, and a side that will cause some damage to the top sides come finals time as they have proven to do so, so far.

Sydney Swans Team News


Callum Sinclair, Dylan Stephens, Hayden McLean and Kaiden Brand have all been omitted from the senior side.

The big news is that Tom Hickey will make his way back into the side, arguably one of their most influential players that saw their season get off to such a fast start.

Sydney Swans Team List


B: Hewett, Rampe, Fox
HB: Dawson, McCartin, Lloyd
C: McInerney, Mills, Florent
HF: Wicks,  Heeney, Hayward
F: McDonald, Franklin, Papley
FOL: Hickey, Kennedy, Warner
IC: Cunningham, Pakrer, Rowbottom, Amartey
EMG: Bell, Brand, Sinclair, Stephens

St Kilda Form


St Kilda have played some okay footy and some simply B grade footy, including a fortnight ago where they were witches hats against a firing Bulldogs side.

They had to win last week and they did so against North Melbourne, but it was no convincing and not that of a side that should trouble anyone inside the eight.

Sydney should pack too much power for the Saints group who must have issues going on at the club, as they have taken a large fall from grace after some great footy played last season.

St Kilda Team News


Jack Lonie has been omitted from the side along with Tom Highmore, while star player Hunter Clark will return to the side and add some much needed dash.

St Kilda Team List

HB: Wilkie, Hill, Sinclair
C: Geary, Crouch, Billings
HF: Butler, Ross, Higgins
F: Wood, King, Membrey
FOL: Ryder, Steele, Dunstan

EMG: Highmore, Lonie, Long, Hunter
