How to watch St Kilda Saints vs West Coast Eagles AFL live and match preview
The battling Saints will be hoping to recover from a horrible start to the season in their AFL clash with West Coast.
The Saints are on a two-game skid and their next three fixtures are against top sides West Coast, Richmond and Port Adelaide. They also lost star midfielder Jade Gresham to a season-ending Achilles injury in their heavy loss to Essendon.
The Eagles are reeling too from the loss of captain Luke Shuey to a hamstring injury. The 30-year-old midfielder was arguably best on ground in the impressive win over the Power last weekend so it's a bitter blow for coach Adam Simpson.
When is St Kilda Saints vs West Coast Eagles?
The opening bounce is at 4:35pm AEST at Marvel Stadium, Melbourne on Saturday 10 April.

Who will win St Kilda vs West Coast?
The loss of Shuey is a huge blow for the Eagles but we still expect them to get the job done against the struggling Saints. The Eagles are working for each other across the field and Nic Naitanui has been sensational in the ruck.
St Kilda are in a massive hole, with Gresham's season over and out-of-form wingman Brad Hill labelled the most overpaid player in the competition by Port Adelaide great Kane Cornes. Nick Riewoldt has called on coach Brett Ratten to axe his under-performing veterans. Saints livewire Dan Butler, for example, has not laid a single tackle in the past two games.
