The Round 24 clash pits 2nd against 6th with plenty on the line. Brisbane needs a win to secure a home Qualifying Final, while St Kilda will look to lock in a home Elimination Final with a victory. A loss could force the Saints to travel to Sydney for week one of finals.

St Kilda handed Geelong a 33-point loss last round, also controlling the middle with big games from Brad Crouch, Jack Steele and Brad Hill. Jack Sinclair starred off half-back with 38 disposals.
The Saints have won four of their past five matches but face the competition's toughest road trip to the GABBA where Brisbane are undefeated this season. Expect the Lions' remarkable home record to remain intact.
