Gresham , Billings , Butler playing in the foward line and Lonie o a 1 year contract wont want to give away his spot easilyInteresting, prediction of each club best 22 has Higgins on the bench for st kilda. You better work hard to keep your spot.

Would be funny if he is stuck in the 2's for St Kilda
Far too young for the Cats. He’s also unpredictable, and they don’t like that.Someone else on here outlined the two schools of thought in AFL circles atm: chaos vs control.
The problem I see with Jack is he’s probably a very good player in a ball control system, but he’s not suitable for a chaos system.
I think St Kilda’s philosophy is heading down the Richmond path.
They likely promised him more midfield time, and yes, he’ll accumulate decent stats in the middle - but my prediction is he may not fit their overall gameplan with the ball and they’ll end up playing him as a small forward in a similar role he played for us. He should still be a good player (he had 2-3 games in 2020 where he was one of our top 3-5 players on the ground), but the Saints might be in for a surprise if they’re hoping Higgins will explode like Butler did.
Butler is the prototypical chaos footballer in every way. Low possessions but clean, very fast, excellent defensive hunger, likeable, selfless, doesn’t stand out in supercoach.
Higgins is almost the polar opposite to Butler in every major area. He would’ve fit in perfectly at a club like Geelong, but he had his heart set on St Kilda due to the romance of it, so good luck to him. We know he’ll leave no stone unturned.
