St Kilda Saints vs Essendon Bombers Preview
St Kilda were excellent heading up to Brisbane in Round 13 and despite losing by 21 points, they were in the contest for the majority of the night.
The Saints were forced to play out the game with just two on the bench with Mitch Owens, Dan McKenzie and Zak Jones going down with injuries and concussion.
An inspiring speech from Dyson Heppell was not enough to get his side over the line in their 150th celebration on Friday night.
They were in the contest early but from half way through the second, they were well beaten.
On a rain effected deck the final score line of 26 points probably flattered the Dons and they would need to improve dramatically to be any chance against a St Kilda outfit that is at another level.
