Carlton V St Kilda

Saturday 17 August 2019 @ 1.45pm

MCG

Head to Head:


Played 220 – Carlton 162 wins, St Kilda 56 wins, 2 draws

Last Time They Met: Round 10 win to the Saints 9.14 (68) to 8.7 (55) Cripps and Walsh were good (again) but not enough contributions from the rest of the team.

Last Round:

Carlton def by Richmond by 28 at the G

St Kilda def Fremantle by 3 at Docklands

Sadly the season is coming to an end. Each game under Teague has showed us something different about the team's potential whether it be;
  • great games by individuals - Crippa, Setters, Jones, Weiters
  • new roles for players - SPS, Jack
  • team effort - forward pressure, linking up efforts along the wing, tackling, shepherding
  • not dropping our heads when behind - eg Melbourne game
  • four quarters - esp. against Crows, grinding work against Freo
Saints have had our measure for a long while, so I'm looking forward to seeing our improvement in handling their usual advantages - mature bodies, tall and crumbing forwards and strong mids. And to see what we have learnt from the last two games against well drilled finals contenders.

Key Players

Carlton

Won't be about the individuals if we are going to get across the line, it'll be how we play together and execute some key roles. And delivering with some composure going into the forward line. We seem to have reverted to blind hacks forward over the last couple of weeks against Eagles and Tigers.

Backs have taken a bit of a hit with injury again this year, but are starting to gel with new personnel.
Weiters and Jones are working well together and are marking and spoiling like old pros.
Samo looking the goods in traffic at HBF, Newman can be a real attacking option when we press forward. Plow taking on difficult jobs every week. Daisy and Simmo showing old time smarts and effort required.

The backs look good when the mids are winning the clearances and running defensively.

Cripps and Walsh are clearly our best, and are more effective with the mature support of Kreuz,Ed and Murph.

Forwards have also lacked a bit of continuity but look at their best when applying forward pressure - led by Jack. Deluca applying great pressure and allowing Gibbo to go higher up the ground. . Cas the best of our big guys. Harry and Brackets could be a handful for the Saints backline if they keep presenting and contesting.

Fish chipping in, though not in great nick. We need more from him, LOB and Setters.

St Kilda
  • Tim Membrey and Josh Bruce – one or both have been known to kick a few against us.
  • Jack Billings – shows his talent against us too often. Would be great to limit his opportunities this week.
  • Shane Savage – Continues to rack up the possessions and run.
  • Jack Steele, Jack Stevens, Seb Ross & Luke Dunstan - Ed will need to go to the most damaging.
St Kilda have looked more dynamic under Rattan (as they often call him on the Saints board. They are into their wicker chairs over there). But when they play badly - they long bomb, have a lot of disposal errors and seem a bit flat footed. Sounds familiar to Carlton in our bad games/quarters.

Who Will Win & Why
Thinking we'll reverse the results from Round 10 and will win by 13 points. Both sides are prone to skill errors under pressure and revert to quick disposals. I'm backing Teague to really focus on the team on getting back to playing the game like we did against the Crows. Lowering the eyes and making more of our entries into the forward line. Creating more run and support for each other to attack.

Plus, we are due. Go Blues.

And it's Crippa's 100th

Not sure you can play Kennedy and Mgovern in the same forward line. If Dow comes in to play forward it's just a waste of time he will have no impact. Harry will be fine, not his day with those conditions.

Great preview.

Really hope we win this one, one last endorsement of Teague.

Will also move us above Syd on the ladder (assuming they lose).

I ******* hate losing to the saints.
Tough game...saints have had wood on us and also playing for their coach. Steven and hanneberry back and both were good vs freo.

Must win game...wheels will start to fall off the Teague train if we lose imo. Would just be nice to cement it and possibly ensure some targets choose us and things are positive around the club.

Wouldn't be great to end the season with 4 losses in a row, even if three of the games were against top 4 teams.
