St Kilda and the Western Bulldogs meet up in round 18 for a late Sunday afternoon match at Marvel Stadium.
For St Kilda a win here means a fresh start. It's been inevitable for a while that Alan Richardson wouldn't be coaching next year. That speculation will be gone now and the club will hope to receive the bounce that often seems to happen when an interim, in this case Brett Ratten, is placed in charge.
At 8-8, making the top eight for the Western Bulldogs is a genuine possibility. However, the Dogs' percentage of 94.8 is a fair way behind their rivals. Making up at least some of that margin would be significant for their finals chances.
