Quite simply, Sydney will be eyeing a percentage booster here.
No-one will be giving the Saints much of a chance against a rampant Swans side fine-tuning themselves for a tilt at the AFL premiership in September.
Sydney will be at full strength and will be expected to one this one easily, but the Saints have shown some resolve in the second half of the season. Let’s not forget their 58-point demolition of top four side Fremantle.
It’s very hard to see St Kilda repeating their win over the Dockers, especially away from home.
John Longmire’s side will be looking for a big win here to boost its percentage as at current it’s a three-way tie on top of the AFL ladder on points.
1. In 210 matches between these teams, the Swans hold a clear advantage, 130-77. There have also been three draws, in 1922, 1977 and 2002.
2. The Swans are once again the AFL’s top tackling team, averaging 74.1 per game. St Kilda is 10th (66.3).
3. Lance Franklin has kicked five goals in each of his last three games against the Saints, but hasn’t faced them since round 6, 2012.
4. St Kilda has a reasonable record at the SCG, winning 10 of the 26 games held there. The Saints’ last win at the ground came in 2009.
5. St Kilda skipper Nick Riewoldt is ranked seventh in the AFL for marks inside 50, but he plays a lone hand for his side. Overall the Saints are ranked 14th, with just 9.7 marks inside 50 per game.
6. Franklin is the top-ranked key forward in the Official AFL Player Ratings. Despite his excellent season, Riewoldt is only ranked 11th among the League’s spearheads.
