On the Fox Sports Lab AFL show, Jason Dunstall, Ben Dixon, and stats guru Al Paton preview the opening round 1 match of the 2023 AFL season between St Kilda and Fremantle.

The game will be played at Marvel Stadium, and it marks the return of Ross Lyon as the coach of St Kilda. Meanwhile, Fremantle coach Justin Longmuir is looking to guide his team to another top-eight season.

Dunstall and Dixon both predict a win for Fremantle, citing the Saints' long injury list and lack of strong forwards. Dixon suggests that St Kilda may play Anthony Caminiti, a pre-season signing, as a forward, but it will be challenging for them to kick a winning score. On the other hand, Fremantle has the advantage of having Luke Jackson as a new recruit, giving them an added dimension up front. Dixon also praises Fremantle's strategy of playing Nat Fyfe as a key forward, and if he can improve his goal-kicking, he can be a real weapon for the team.

The panel also discusses Ross Lyon's return as the coach of St Kilda and the impact he will have on the team's game plan. Dunstall thinks that Lyon's arrival will give the team a strong defensive mindset. While Dixon acknowledges that it takes time to implement a new game plan, he believes that St Kilda needs a change and that Lyon's experience can provide the direction they need.

Lastly, the panel predicts that Andrew Brayshaw will have a big game against St Kilda. He had a combined 76 disposals against them in two games last year, and the panel expects him to go big again.

The Fox Sports Lab AFL panel predicts that Fremantle will win against St Kilda in their opening round 1 match of the 2023 season. Despite Ross Lyon's return as coach of St Kilda, the team's long injury list and lack of strong forwards may be their downfall. Fremantle, on the other hand, has new recruit Luke Jackson and Nat Fyfe as a key forward, giving them an advantage.
