Medical subs for Pies and Saints

For the Pies it will be Finlay Macrae, who has filled this role a few times through 2021.

Josh Battle is the medical substitute for St Kilda.

Wet and windy at the G’, and interestingly, looks as if the Pies are still going with Mason Cox, Brodie Grundy and Darcy Cameron. Rowan Marshall and Paddy Ryder always important for the Saints.
