Round 14

Saints V Geelong. Both teams undefeated this season. The only teams undefeated this season. Geelong won the Premiership in '07 and were runners-up last year - the best team of the last 3 years, the team that all others measure themselves against. They've only lost 3 or 4 games since mid-07.

And they lost today.


Saints by a solitary goal. Man, it was a tough game. Close and extremely hard fought all the way through - there'll be some very sore bodies tonight. 5 minutes to go and scores were level. But the Saints rallied to kick the last goal of the match with just over a minute to go. Thrilling stuff.
And they beat Geelong. Yeah!!!!!!!
And now they sit top of the ladder by themselves too.

I think I'll break out the scarf now - doesn't really matter what happens for the rest of the season, the Saints have now proved themselves to be genuine title contenders. They are good enough!
