St Kilda take on Geelong at the Gabba in Brisbane in the first game of Monday's AFL Round 11 double header.

Victory will go a long way to helping either side solidify top four credentials. With a compressed ladder still, it won't take much for either side to come back to the pack, making this a very important game for both the Saints and Cats.

St Kilda Form


St Kilda have been the big improvers so far in 2020 under new coach Brett Ratten, and thanks to some strong recruiting over the last two years. 

They find themselves 3rd on the ladder currently with 7 wins and three losses from their 10 matches so far.

Saints were rather dominant prior to their last match against the Gold Coast Suns which saw them prevail by 4 points on August 6 in a tight contest.

St Kilda vs Geelong Cats Match Up

As the ladder supports, it looks a tough game to split which is furthered by the fact that these two teams play very contrasting game styles.

St Kilda have completely re-invented themselves in season 2020. A hard running and quick style of play makes them one of the best teams to watch in the competition.

Geelong, on the other hand, have a much more measured approach across the board, and in this contest will be looking to control the footy and deny the Saints running game.

It looms as an intrgiuing battle with both teams well in top four contention. With the Saints, it will be interesting to see if they can keep this momentum going against an experienced Cats line-up that is just starting to get warm. That certainly applies to main forward Tom Hawkins, who has kicked multiple goals in 5 of the last 6 fixtures for Geelong.
