Game Chat – West Coast v Greater Western Sydney

Written by Father Dougal on July 8 2018

WHERE AND WHEN: Optus Stadium, Sunday, July 8, 2.40pm AWST

SUMMARY
If a week is a long time in football, then a month is an eternity – as these sides can attest. The Giants’ finals ambitions were on a knife’s edge but they have reeled off four straight wins either side of the bye and climbed to sixth on the ladder after getting past Hawthorn last round. Their star-studded midfield was prolific against the Hawks, dominating clearances (+23) and contested ball (+55), and looms as West Coast’s stumbling block. The Eagles are in serious danger of squandering their excellent 10-1 start after three consecutive losses since the bye. Injuries to key players have hurt but West Coast’s issues run deeper, with its inability to halt momentum and stem the bleeding costing it dearly in winnable games against Essendon and Adelaide. The Eagles’ top-four spot will be in grave jeopardy if they can’t muster victory at home on Sunday.

LAST FIVE TIMES
R8, 2018, West Coast 12.14 (86) d Greater Western Sydney 8.13 (61) at Spotless Stadium
1SF, 2017, Greater Western Sydney 19.11 (125) d West Coast 9.4 (58) at Spotless Stadium
R22, 2017, Greater Western Sydney 12.9 (81) d West Coast 9.4 (58) at Spotless Stadium
R10, 2017, Greater Western Sydney 14.14 (98) d West Coast 14.6 (90) at Subiaco Oval
R21, 2016, West Coast 14.13 (97) d Greater Western Sydney 14.12 (96) at Spotless Stadium

FD’s Tip:  Even though they are at home, I fear the Eagles injury woes will be enough to clip their wings.  GWS by 10 points

  1. Although I think WCE will win at home!

    If GWS cause an upset, Essendon cause an upset v Collingwood & Nth win which they will IMO

    The AFL ladder will have 8 teams from 3rd to 10th separated by 1 win & % only….how tight is the competition in 2018 🙂

    1. The Eagles at home are formidable. But with so many forwards out, it feels like they are going to have a rough time scoring. Maybe Hurn will step up and get a bag 🙂

    1. I traded him to Grundy whilst drunk watching England (WC) last night. Woke up happy but with only two trades left.
      Ah well, at least I don’t have to worry about NicNat today.
      Good luck FT!

        1. Thanks allsaints.

          I do have McInerney’s 48 as cover.

          Too many pedestrians in my side this week
          Only 5 tons so far.
          I really need de Goey to have a big one.

        2. Haha. It’s not the first time Catta, and am certain it won’t be the last. Grundy not showing his usual gusto early. NicNat will prolly outscore him today. Looks like he’s playing FT, so that’s the first bit sorted.
          Go NicNat and come on Reg!

          1. Ahern 81 (covering Heeney) has out scored 5 of my so called Premiums this week.

            I will be lucky to crack 2100 🙁

            Hows everyone else going?

  3. Come on Yeo, Hurn & Coniglio…..bring Catta home 350 points between you to finish off the round!

    On a side note ( hopefully I don’t offend anyone ) Gee Sarah Jones from Fox Footy looks fantastic in jeans 😉
