How to watch St Kilda Saints vs Hawthorn Hawks AFL live and free
St Kilda aim to stem the bleeding and improve their finals hopes against the struggling Hawks. This is how you can watch.
St Kilda enjoyed a bye in round 15 and that may have come at just the right time. After pushing towards the AFL's top four in a highly encouraging season, the Saints lost three of their past four matches to put their postseason spot in jeopardy. That included a two-point defeat to Brisbane and a three-point loss to Melbourne.
Now sitting seventh at the time of writing, Brett Ratten's side next faces a Hawthorn team enduring a wretched 2020. Currently mired in a five-game losing streak, that sequence was capped by a six-goal loss to previously winless Adelaide last time out. Slumping to 16th on the ladder, the Hawks will be long odds to snap that run against the Saints.
When is St Kilda vs Hawthorn?
This match opens a Sunday triple-header in round 16 of the AFL draw, commencing at 1:05pm AEST at Metricon Stadium on the Gold Coast on 6 September.

Who will win St Kilda vs Hawthorn?
St Kilda fans must have had that familiar sinking feeling in recent weeks. A finals position that seemed all-but guaranteed, and would end a drought that dates back to 2011, suddenly came under threat. A strong victory over the Hawks would just about have them secure in the top eight and we think they will get it with few troubles. After so much success over the past decade or more, Hawks fans must be willing 2020 to come to an end.
