Game Chat – Essendon v West Coast

Written by Father Dougal on May 21 2017

Venue: Etihad Stadium, Sunday, May 21, 1.10pm AEST

Last Time They Met: R15, 2016, West Coast Eagles 20.10 (130) d Essendon 7.10 (52) at Domain Stadium
R11, 2015, West Coast Eagles 14.12 (96) d Essendon 6.10 (46) at Domain Stadium
R21, 2014, Essendon 11.11 (77) d West Coast Eagles 11.8 (74) at Etihad Stadium
R20, 2013, West Coast Eagles 18.12 (120) d Essendon 9.13 (67) at Etihad Stadium
R14, 2013, Essendon 15.8 (98) d West Coast Eagles 13.13 (91) at Domain Stadium

Game notes: West Coast hasn’t put a foot wrong since its terrible loss to Hawthorn in round five at the MCG. The Eagles smashed Fremantle the following week, headed to Adelaide after that and disposed of Port Adelaide, and then last week overcame the Western Bulldogs in a tough affair at Domain Stadium. They will come to Melbourne looking to make a point against the Bombers, who returned to the winners’ list last week with the best performance of their season – a 17-point win over Geelong where they dominated the game. West Coast’s hard-running and multi-faceted midfield unit will again be key for the Eagles in their quest to notch their seventh win of the season and entrench themselves in the top four. But Essendon is on its home deck and will be hoping its fleet of small forwards and improved chemistry across the field can steer it to a victory to go to 5-4 and stick with the competition’s finals hopefuls.

Father Dougal’s Tip: West Coast by 6
