Pepper Money Team Selection: Round 17

RD 17 | Team Selection Assistant Coach Adam Skrobalak runs through St Kilda's team selection for our Round 17 match against Geelong. Brought to you by Pepper Money.

Jack Lonie and Nathan Brown will return to the senior side for St Kilda’s clash with Geelong on Saturday night. 

The two Saints of contrasting statures will add some much-needed grunt to the line-up, which will hope to secure a scalp against the top-of-the-table Cats. 

Matthew Parker will make way for the returning Lonie, while Josh Battle has been forced to withdraw after sustaining a low-grade strain to his medial ligament against North Melbourne.

It will be Lonie’s first senior appearance since Round 6, with his ground-level presence and knack for booting pivotal goals sorely missed over the past months. 

A successful three-goal return for Sandringham showed the 22-year-old hasn’t skipped a beat, despite his lengthy stint on the sidelines.

Brown, meanwhile, will be a vital addition to the Saints’ defence and will play a major role in curtailing Geelong’s talls in Tom Hawkins and Esava Ratugolea. 

Parker will be waiting in the wings for a late call-up and will be joined by Doulton Langlands, Bailey Rice and Sam Rowe as part of the emergencies. 

St Kilda will face Geelong at GMHBA Stadium this Saturday at 7:25pm. 

IN: Brown, Lonie
OUT: Battle (injured), Parker (omitted)
