Calf twinge forces Patrick Dangerfield out but the Geelong Cats get cream against St Kilda


Jeremy Cameron kicked the subsequent purpose instantly after half-time and the Saints have been by no means an opportunity from that time on as their hearts sank and their supporters checked how Richmond have been going as they hoped to cling to the eighth rung on the ladder.

Max Holmes was excellent on the wing as Geelong rediscovered their ball motion, whereas their defence led by the precocious Sam De Koning – who defeated Max King – stored the Saints goalless for the third quarter. Jake Kolodjashnij was glorious in his a hundred and fiftieth sport, with Jack Henry taking part in ahead whereas Rhys Stanley stamped himself as the No. 1 ruckman.

The run of eight unanswered objectives ended when Higgins kicked a purpose halfway by way of the ultimate quarter with the margin out to 58 factors at that time. St Kilda’s disappointing efficiency was exacerbated by an ankle harm to veteran Dan Hannebery, who might have performed the ultimate sport of his profession.

The greatest headache for the Cats will probably be at choice with Dangerfield, Selwood, Gary Rohan and Mark Blicavs all on the sidelines, with Blicavs managed whereas Rohan was in the concussion protocols.


Brandan Parfitt, in simply his second sport again from a hand harm, discovered kind in the third quarter as the Cats look to get their greatest gamers taking part in at their greatest in September.

St Kilda are as soon as once more in a combat to complete in the finals, with Richmond taking their place in the high eight, the Saints battling Brisbane on Friday night time whereas Richmond play Hawthorn.
