St. Kilda



"It has become something of a truism to maintain that Aussies love an honest battler, as epitomised during the first World War by the tragic heroism of the defeated Australian forces at Gallipoli.

Where other clubs boast of premierships, the Saints can point to an unparalleled collection of wooden spoons (27 in total)..."
