St. Kilda win by 39 points
In greasy conditions St Kilda pulled six top players out of their side minutes before the game began.
The Demons were in striking range at three quarter time, before Saints recruit Gary Sidebottom kicked four goals early in the last quarter.
Best were Coles, Baker and Seaton. Robert Flower was a late withdrawal with an Achilles' injury.
