THE WASH-UP

St Kilda captain Jarryn Geary spoke to 3AW on Sunday afternoon.

He said Nick Riewoldt and Leigh Montagna are great influence on their younger teammates.

“They’re very much key influences and barometers for our group,” Geary said.

“If they can continue to play in the vein they played in last night, it’ll take care of itself.”

FULL TIME 

St Kilda has completed a massive 67-point win over Richmond.

The Saints’ first half was one for the ages, booting 14 goals to one.

The Tigers are still fourth, but the Saints are now just 1.3 per cent behind them in fifth place.

Saints gun Seb Ross has 33 touches and eight tackles in another dominant display.

Ross told 3AW the Saints had been building up to such a performance for a few weeks.

“We had three wins on the trot before this and (still) hadn’t played our best footy,” he said.

Geelong legend Jimmy Bartel spoke about Tom Lonergan ahead of his 200th game.

Lonergan was lucky to play even eight games after a horrible injury in game No.7, in which he lost a kidney, but will line up against Brisbane on Saturday night.

The Saints and Tigers come together on Saturday night in support of Maddie Riewoldt’s Vision.

But once the ball is bounced, there will be only one thing on the minds of these 44 players.

Richmond has a chance to consolidate their spot in the Top 4, while a spot in the eight is on the line for the Saints.
