Show Notes


While the Saints struggled to get going in Season 6, there are some promising signs for Season 7 with a lot of young players ready to build on the opportunities they had last season and returning players to provide additional support. We chat with Tarni White (following her impressive move to the midfield in Season 6) to find out how the Saints are looking ahead of Season 7.


Episode Guide

0:34 One of the more recent expansion sides, the Saints have been inconsistent so far but another pre-season under coach Nick Dal Santo has the players ready to climb the ladder.

2:00 Tarni chats with us about her time with the Saints, the pre-season so far and what we can expect from some relevant Fantasy players this season.

21:12 Defenders – Hannah Priest could be set for more midfield time, and offer up a lot of value; B&F winner Bianca Jakobsson is a consistent scorer as an intercepting defender.

25:41 Midfielders – the discounted Tyanna Smith and Georgia Patrikios look to be super value, but question marks around whether Georgia plays in round 1? Tarni White should build her scoring consistency with a season under her belt; and draftee Hannah Stuart has a fantasy pedigree.

31:21 Forwards – the hard tackling Nicola Xenos is likely to build on her midfield minutes; and Nicola Stevens is a fantastic addition up forward to partner the impressive Caitlin Greiser. Draftee J’Noemi Anderson is an exciting prospect but it's a tough forward line to be building fantasy scores in.

35:59 Rucks – Leah Cutting missing the season with an ACL injury has devastated the Free Kick team, but recruit Erin McKinnon is set to shoulder the ruck load in Season 7. An elite tap ruck, who will do more for the St Kilda midfielders than our fantasy teams.
