During these match sims, I have seen some teams have periods of dominance over their opponents, but Melbourne were a cut above the Saints for most of the game.
Buoyed by their star-studded midfield and close-to-impenetrable defence, the Dees piled on two offensive blasts that laid waste to the Saints at Moorabbin.
But were there takeaways for the St Kilda Football Club from the game?
Hell yeah, there were, and whilst the Dees had a heap of positives, we saw a few green shoots from the Saints, as well. HB watched on closely – here are those takeaways.
Uh oh… paywall. We’re gonna cover as many practice games this weekend as technology and lack of sleep will allow for our members. Next weekend, too. All preseason game coverage will be restricted and will not open up like our Home and Away reviews. Want to join us?
