St Kilda’s forward line has received a substantial boost ahead of Thursday night’s decisive match against West Coast at the Gabba.

Key forwards Tim Membrey and Max King, along with speedster Nicholas Hind, have returned to the line-up in the hopes of securing a long-awaited finals berth for the club.

Finger surgery sidelined Membrey last week, while King was rested after a starring debut season which has yielded 19 goals from 14 games.
