Match Report

Brisbane has defeated St Kilda by 31 points in a battle of the "also-rans" at the Gabba on Saturday night. The win came at a cost to both teams, with Lions co-captain sustaining a partial tear to his plantar fascia - an injury that could end his season - and Saint Rhys Stanley suffering a broken collarbone, an injury that has definitely ended his season.

Although there were times in this match that the Saints threatened to make an impact, Brisbane was able to keep them at arm's length throughout the evening. Trailing by 18 points at the last change, St Kilda controlled the play for the first few minutes of the final term, with the ball in its forward line almost exclusively in that period,

But the Saints could not make an impact in that time and when the ball was eventually swept to the other end of the ground at the six-minute mark an easy mark and goal to Brent Staker ended any last St Kilda resistance.

Best for the Lions were Tom Rockliff (39 disposals), Pearce Hanley (27 touches and two goals) and Jack Redden (32 possessions), while Leigh Montagna (28 touches and two goals), Nick Dal Santo (31 disposals and a goal) and David Armitage (30 possessions) were all good contributors for St Kilda.

The win took Brisbane's win tally for 2013 to eight, and they remain a mathematical chance of making the eight. The Lions will play Richmond, GWS, the Western Bulldogs and Geelong in their last four matches. For St Kilda, Saturday's loss was another in a season to forget for coach Scott Watters and his charges. The Saints have endured a horror injury stretch, and been subjected to constant unwanted attention surrounding Stephen Milne's rape charges and Ahmed Saad's irregular blood sample test.

The Saints face Hawthorn, Sydney, Gold Coast and Fremantle in their last month but Watters could be forgiven for saying that the season's end can't come quickly enough.
