The Cats and Saints meet in a crucial round 21 clash at Etihad Stadium that will help determine the make-up of the final eight.
Geelong’s form has been strong since it was beaten heavily by Collingwood in round 16, three wins over top eight rivals followed by a brave effort when depleted on the road in a narrow loss to the West Coast last week. St Kilda has also been finishing the season in convincing fashion, having won four of its past six. Its only losses have been to powerhouses Sydney and Collingwood.
The Cats are strengthened siginifcantly byt he return of several top-liners, and the Saints lose key forward nick Riewoldt. But these teams a have a recent history of torrid, close encounters. No more than 28 points has separated the teams in their past six matches, and four of those were thrillers decided by less than two goals, most notably the 2009 grand final.
