Game notes: After a horror past fortnight for both clubs, this looms as a crucial clash. The Suns were deplorable against Port Adelaide in China and dished up more of the same in a second-half fadeout against Melbourne that leaves their finals hopes in big trouble. However, with Gary Ablett back, and a strong record at Metricon Stadium, they’re not without a chance against a spluttering West Coast. After a strong start to 2017, the Eagles have wobbled lately, losing poorly to Essendon and then stumbling against an injury-ravaged GWS last weekend. Throw in the loss of star forward Josh Kennedy (calf) – who always feasts against the Suns – and the ledger between these clubs seems to have been squared. It’s difficult to pick the inconsistent Suns, but it wouldn’t be a total shock if they sprung an upset here.
Thommo’s Tip: West Coast by 6 points.
