Predictions for St Kilda vs. Geelong Cats

St Kilda has improved in recent weeks, but they face a Geelong Cats team that has dominated them for the past decade.

Last week, the Cats made a statement by defeating the Richmond Tigers by 63 points in a rematch of the Grand Final. For the Saints, they should have far too many goalscoring weapons, with Tom Hawkins expected to shine.

St Kilda has lost four of their last five games against the Geelong Cats.

The Geelong Cats have won nine of their last eleven games against the St Kilda Saints.

The Geelong Cats have won three out of their last four games.

The Geelong Cats have won their last two games by 97 and 63 points, respectively.

Tom Hawkins of Geelong has scored three goals or more in eight of his ten games at Marvel Stadium.


Head to Head

The Cats have won the last four head-to-head meetings, as well as nine of the last eleven. In that time, St Kilda has won one game and there was also a tie in 2015.

 

Last year, the Cats won by 59 points in their only meeting. In a one-sided match at the Gabba in Brisbane, Geelong won 93-34.

 

St Kilda Form

St Kilda has won back-to-back games to resurrect their stuttering season, and a win on Friday will propel them into the top eight.

Saints have beaten Hawthorn and Gold Coast Suns in the last two rounds after heavy defeats at the hands of Richmond Tigers and Port Adelaide.

They thrashed the Hawks 128-59 before prevailing in a close game against the Suns last weekend.

In a 64-54 victory at Metricon Stadium, St Kilda's Jack Billings led the way with 25 disposals and two goals.

 

St Kilda Team News

 

After overcoming a hamstring injury and making two VFL appearances, James Frawley is set to make his St Kilda debut.

Seb Ross, who missed last week's victory due to the birth of twins, will also be available.

With strong performances in the VFL, Mason Wood, Tom Highmore, Luke Dunstan, Ben Long, and Jack Lonie all staked their claims for recall.

 

Geelong Cats Form

Last weekend, Geelong dominated reigning premiers Richmond Tigers, avenging a controversial two-point loss to Sydney Swans in Round 7.

The Cats won 126-63 at the MCG, avenging their Grand Final loss in 2020. Jeremy Cameron, Tom Hawkins, and Gary Rohan each scored 15 goals for the Cats.

Three of the Cats' last four games have ended in victories, including a 97-point victory over the West Coast Eagles three weeks ago.

After suffering a hamstring injury against Richmond, Sam Simpson has been ruled out.
