Smashing Saints do it for Lenny

THE Saints celebrated Lenny Hayes' 250th game in style, beating the Sydney Swans by 28 points at Docklands on Saturday.

The Saints ran roughshod over Sydney, kicking 13 goals to eight from quarter-time to win 16.15 (111) to 12.11 (83).

For St Kilda the positives ranged from the exciting group of young talent, including Ahmed Saad, Arryn Siposs, Tom Simpkin and Terry Milera, to the excellent games from team leaders like Nick Riewoldt, Nick Dal Santo and Stephen Milne.

Scott Watters' men looked to have set themselves for a huge effort for Hayes, who had 25 touches in a strong outing.

Hayes told Fox Sports that it was great to get to his milestone game after missing most of last year with a ruptured ACL.
