Saints coach shell-shocked by Miss of the Year

St Kilda coach Brett Ratten couldn’t hide his frustration after veteran Seb Ross missed a seemingly simple goal in the final seconds of the first half against Sydney.

Ross got the ball over the back and ran into an open goal, yet with a Swans defender coming towards him, threw the ball onto his left boot and missed badly to the left.

“Out the back, Ross, should kick a goal … somehow misses!” commentator Mark Howard said on Fox Footy.

'The horrible accuracy for St Kilda continues…'

Yep, that's one way to say it. Seb Ross with a shocker from in front.

It was yet another brutal example of the Saints’ big problem this year – inaccuracy in front of goal.

They kicked themselves out of an upset of Geelong a few weeks ago by kicking a woeful 5.17 to the Cats’ 10.8, also producing scorelines of 8.15 and 9.14.

“This horrible accuracy of St Kilda continues this year – ranked 17th in the competition,” Brisbane great Jonathan Brown said on Fox Footy.

“The last month, 30 per cent accuracy, so more than two out of three you’re missing, and that’s just not good enough for AFL footballers.

“You should be aiming for two out of three, not to miss two out of three.”

That’s a coach killer from Seb Ross. Deadset.
