St Kilda has reinforced its top four position on the AFL ladder with a commanding 53-point win over the Sydney Swans at the Gabba.

Coming into the match after toppling the ladder-leaders last week, the Saints held off a Swans challenge in the third quarter before prevailing 15. 11. (101) to 6. 12. (48) winners.

Despite the club's impressive win leaving it in third place on the ladder, St Kilda defender Jake Carlisle could attract some scrutiny for an incident in the third quarter.

Rampe was playing in the match with a protective glove on his hand after breaking a bone in his hand in Sydney's win over Hawthorn last week.

The veteran defender was a game-time decision to play for the Swans this week, but was eventually ruled fit to play.

Carlisle's actions are sure to attract the attention of AFL Match Review Officer Michael Christian in the next 24 hours.

When asked if Rampe was "fair game" due to coming into the match injured, one of Kretiuk's teammates on that day, Bulldogs great Brad Johnson, disagreed.

"You're just putting yourself in that position again for critics to come," Johnson told Fox Footy.

"You just can't be doing that. It's not a good look for anybody, in particular for Jake Carlisle."

Carlisle's action was also slammed by four-time Hawks premiership great Jordan Lewis.

"It's just stupid," Lewis told Fox Footy.

"There's nothing to achieve there and it's a shocking look for the game. It just didn't need to happen."

How far can the new-look Saints go marching? .
While lots of attention is, quite rightly, being paid to West Coast’s ominous dismantling of Collingwood on Sunday, it was a fourth-quarter clinic in St Kilda’s win over Port Adelaide that caught my eye on the weekend. Leading by one point against the ladder-leaders on their home deck, the Saints piled on five straight goals to two behinds to claim 29-point win that catapulted them to third on the ladder.
