Game Chat – West Coast vs Western Bulldogs

Venue: Domain Stadium at 6:10pm AWST, 8:10pm AEST

LAST FIVE TIMES
2EF, 2016, Western Bulldogs 14.15 (99) d West Coast 7.10 (52) at Domain Stadium
R11, 2016, Western Bulldogs 12.11 (83) d West Coast 11.9 (75) at Etihad Stadium
R21, 2015, West Coast 25.12 (162) d Western Bulldogs 13.7 (85) at Domain Stadium
R1, 2015, Western Bulldogs 14.13 (97) d West Coast 14.3 (87) at Etihad Stadium
R1, 2014, West Coast 21.8 (134) d Western Bulldogs 11.3 (69) at Domain Stadium 

Game notes: It has been eight months since last year’s shock elimination final loss to the Western Bulldogs, but the pain of that 47-point thumping has been impossible for West Coast to forget. The Eagles could banish some of their demons this Friday night but, more importantly, notch a third-straight victory after answering critics of their interstate form with a gutsy road win over Port Adelaide. Contested possessions have become a major indicator of the Eagles’ performances and will be a key focus after the Dogs smashed them around the ball during the elimination final. The reigning premiers, who will be without star forward Jake Stringer (knee), have yet to hit their straps in 2017 but banked their fifth win in a thriller against Richmond last Saturday night and will have no fears returning to West Coast’s fortress for the match of the round.

Thommo’s Tip: West Coast by 6 points.

While we do our best to update posts with end of quarter scores, we aren’t always online so if you have access to the scores and see they haven’t gone into the Comments section of this post, the Community would love it if you could help us out.

    1. Legend!

      Can’t believe I dropped Dawson to the free agent list in the SCT Draft league. Better grab him again….

  10. Yeo ended up being amongst the best on the ground. Doggies players kept kicking it to him. 110 prescaled!

      1. Given past stats, I was happy to eat 70 odd and lock him in this week for future gain. Bulldogs changed game plan after half time which meant he went back to his natural game.

    1. Thanks RB. I didn’t see much of the first half but looks like Macrae is also becoming a second half specialist.

  12. Insane last quarter from Yeo.
    Someone here earlier in the week said Yeo would score poorly because he’d be stuck shadowing Bont and he’s hopeless SCwise when he’s made to be accountable for a player. I’m pretty sure that was the case for the 1st half of the game and then Yeo played loose and started wracking up the possies. His intercept possessions + rebounding kicks seem to get 12+ points from CD every time.
