Andy ol’ mate, that’s a particularly bad error considering Richo’s actually now working at the club we’re playing!Why would you read anything about AFL in the media, if they themselves have no idea?

St Kilda v Melbourne
Saturday - Marvel Stadium
The Saints were as gritty as it gets against the Giants last week.
At one point late in the final term St Kilda looked gone but resurrected themselves to claim a courageous win in the wet on the road with a number of key players missing.
It was a superb start to the season for Alan Richardson’s men who will have Max King and Zak Jones back in the side to take on the Demons on Saturday night.
Simon Goodwin’s side did enough against an undermanned Fremantle to secure four points, but it came at a cost with James Harmes set to miss up to six weeks with a broken wrist. Former skipper Jack Viney could ease some of that pain by replacing Harmes.
The Saints owe the Dees for last year’s controversial defeat in Alice Springs and back under lights on their home deck at Marvel Stadium should be able to exact revenge.
St Kilda plays an irresistible brand under the roof and should prove too quick for the Demons who pride themselves more on winning the contested ball.
If the Saints can get things on their terms by shifting the ball around swiftly and providing their dangerous forwards with ample scoring opportunities, then they should see it through.
But not without a fight from the Demons who have plenty to prove against last year’s Semi-Finalists.
Tip: St Kilda by 17 points
