St Kilda coach Alan Richardson has confirmed that defender Shane Savage will miss this weekend's game against Melbourne.

Savage looked below his best against the Bombers last week, with a number of turnovers and being caught with the ball a few times throughout the match.

The Saints coach said that debutants Bailey Rice and Brandon White are a good chance to play their first games, while he wasn't as glowing for young midfielder Jack Billings to return, despite 46 disposals in the VFL last weekend.
