St Kilda

Preview by: Jack O’Neill – @oneill_jack

Since their fall from grace following the 2010 Grand Final draw, St Kilda dived well into re-build mode with coach Alan Richardson putting faith in a number of young players. Since the end of 2015 where they finished 14th with only a handful of wins, the Saints have added youngsters Jade Gresham, Brandon White and Bailey Rice (a father/son selection) to complement the likes of new recruits in Jake Carlisle and Nathan Freeman.

These recruits will no doubt be given game-time under Richardson, who has previously blooded the likes of Jack Billings, Luke Dunstan, Paddy McCartin, Hugh Goddard and Jack Lonie already. The Saints could replicate the Western Bulldogs in going from 14th to sixth, but it is more likely they will require time to gel before a genuine push for finals.

Predicted Finish: 10th – 14th

    I think the dockers will fished maybe 3rd or 7th I think the dockers will have a good year but beyond that the dockers need a main gold to is to be at our best but the recruiting in the draft was very low dockers put less 10 years for players and dockers don’t do it enough but the will do ok
