The fans have spoken, and as voted by you, Tim Membrey is this week's Dare Iced Coffee Sainter of the Round.

Membrey was in sublime touch as the Saints clinched an impressive win over GWS on the road, collecting 21 disposals at 81 per cent efficiency, three goals and a team-high 586 metres gained to guide his undermanned side towards a resilient Round 1 triumph.

The vice-captain added to his afternoon with seven marks and seven inside-50s, barely taking misstep despite the unfavourable conditions at GIANTS Stadium.

Plucking marks left and right both inside-50 (two) and higher up the ground, Membrey provided a constant presence as the momentum between the Saints and Giants shifted regularly.

All three of the No. 28's goals came at crucial intervals, with his first two majors capitalising off the Saints' run of momentum in the second and third quarters.

His final goal – complemented with a crisp mark inside-50 in the wet – was kicked with just seven minutes left on the clock, giving his team a crucial seven-point buffer as the Giants mounted their final charge.

Membrey was also awarded a perfect 10 coaches' votes for his match-winning display.

Two votes go to Hunter Clark, whose silkiness was close to unhampered as the rain continued to fall.

Clark (24 disposals, six clearances, 537 metres gained) was an important piece of St Kilda's midfield dynamic, winning the ball on the inside and outside to propel his side into attack.

Alongside Jack BillingsJade Gresham and Jack Sinclair, the emerging on-baller was most impressive at ground level (11 ground-ball gets) and through his ability to weave through congestion.

Billings rounds out this week's voting following his game-high 30-disposal outing.

The Saints leader was a constant driver along the wings and through the midfield, often putting his side into attacking positions off the back of his clean kicking and hard running.

Billings' output didn't dip despite the tight contest, with an even contribution throughout the course of the day adding to his standout game.

Sunday afternoon also marked the first time Billings has had 30 or more touches in a match, with his last haul coming in Round 16, 2019 against North Melbourne.
