How to watch Sydney Swans vs St Kilda Saints AFL live and match preview
The Sydney Swans host St Kilda in a huge game at the SCG on Saturday. Who will win Swans vs Saints?
Swans vs Saints could easily be billed as the Surprising Swans versus the Shambolic Saints. Sydney weren't expected to be in a fight for a spot in the top four at the halfway point of the season, but here we are. The plucky Swans have faced every challenge head-on to this point and look certain finalists.
The Saints, meanwhile, have been anything but plucky. A 5-6 record coupled with the worst average losing margin in the AFL (60.8 points) tells the story of a sorry season to date.
When is Sydney Swans vs St Kilda?

Who will win Swans vs St Kilda?
We'll find out plenty about the Saints on Saturday. Despite their woes, their season remains alive and they arrive in Sydney in winning form, albeit via a less than convincing 20-point win against last-placed North Melbourne.
To be any hope, they need to come ready for battle. Much has been made of Sydney's more offensive approach this season – rightly so – but the Bloods are still defensive masters. They are the number one tackling team in the competition and have restricted their opposition to the third least disposals and least marks across the season.
Sydney will be strengthened by the return of in-form ruckman Tom Hickey while defenders Hunter Clark and James Frawley should come in for the Saints. We're tipping the Swans by five goals.
