St Kilda Saints vs Melbourne Demons Preview
Both the Saints and Dees got the job done in Round 1 and with expectations high for both sides, starting the season 2-0 would be ideal.
In wet conditions, St Kilda managed to pull off a terrific and gutsy 8-point win over GWS at Giants Stadium despite some significant outs.
Melbourne chalked up a 22 point win over Freo in a pretty forgettable contest at the MCG, but the Dees will bank it and move on to the next week.
With somewhat normal programming back in the fixture, many suspect the Saints will be unbeatable when playing under the lid at Marvel Stadium this season so we shall see if that will be the case this Saturday night.
This match is not only the first St Kilda home game in front of their fans since 2019, it will also be a tribute match to the late, great Danny “Spud” Frawley.
Based on that alone, it’s hard to not back against the Saints.
