GWS Giants must beat St Kilda at the Gabba on Friday in their final game of the season if they are to stand a chance of making the finals.

St Kilda Form


St Kilda looked to have the match shot to pieces against West Coast last week, coming back to lead half-way through the last quarter, before West Coast lifted again to win the game.

For seventh-placed Saints to drop out of a finals berth, they will need to be beaten by 50+ points in this match which does look unlikely based on how competitive they have been this season.

If they play with the same spirit as last week, GWS most likely find the Saints too good.

GWS Giants Form


The Giants are the most inconsistent side in the competition - one of the best when they are on it, but one of the worst when they are off.

GWS's inconsistency means they need to win this match after dropping to 10th spot on the ladder following back-to-back defeats.

More consistency throughout the season would have seen GWS secure their spot in the top eight by now,. But due to multiple poor performances, last year's beaten Grand Finalists must win this match to stand a chance of playing finals footy.

Expect captain Stephen Coniglio to come back into the side after controversially being dropped last week.

St Kilda vs GWS Giants Match Up

The key match up in this match looks between Jack Steele and Josh Kelly.

Both are star players of the competition and are both hard ball winners in a contested scenario.

Steele has had his breakout year and will be ready to send himself to the elite level come the start of next year, while Kelly has been there for a couple of years now and will show why he is one of the best on Friday night.

These two players hitting the scoreboard could be the difference between the sides. Whoever can have the most score involvements could come out on top in this battle.
