Game Chat – Fremantle v West Coast

Written by Father Dougal on April 29 2018

WHERE AND WHEN: Optus Stadium, Sunday, April 29, 2.40pm AWST

SUMMARY: The first Western Derby at Optus Stadium promises to be a cracker. The Dockers have the right to host their bitter crosstown rivals and will be full of confidence they can end a five-game losing streak against West Coast after winning all three games at their new home so far. Freo looks a different side at Optus, playing with flair, speed and firepower. Ross Lyon’s men average better than 103 points at home this season, although the coach will have to rethink his forward line after losing spearhead Matt Taberner (fractured metatarsal). Aaron Sandilands’ ruck battle with West Coast duo Nic Naitanui and Scott Lycett will be critical, with Freo seemingly holding an edge in midfield, especially with skipper Nat Fyfe in red-hot form. The Eagles have defied expectations to be entrenched in the top four and will back themselves to kick a winning score if they can supply a potent tall forward line, led by Josh Kennedy, who needs one goal to break Peter Sumich’s club record.

 

LAST FIVE TIMES:

R17, 2017, West Coast 11.8 (74) d Fremantle 5.14 (44) at Subiaco Oval
R6, 2017, West Coast 16.7 (103) d Fremantle 9.8 (62) at Subiaco Oval
R20, 2016, West Coast 17.8 (110) d Fremantle 9.10 (64) at Subiaco Oval
R3, 2016, West Coast 12.20 (92) d Fremantle 8.11 (59) at Subiaco Oval
R20, 2015, West Coast 15.14 (104) d Fremantle 11.14 (80) at Subiaco Oval 

 

Father Dougal’s Tip: Home team by, yeah, um…..after a hard fought contest….Damn…..I’m going with the team that has Nic Nat. Eagles by 6

  2. This is the one every Freo fan really wants to win.

    Home Game V West Coast.

    New stadium.

    I suggest we call best on ground the “Clive Waterhouse Medal”.

    My tip for “The Clive” is No 1 for Freo.

        1. Dang. I didn’t need a 19 from him. A lot of dodgy scores this round. Hopefully affecting everyone…..not feeling so good about this one. Gawn may single handedly keep me from disaster.

  7. Gutted about Walters. Cost me about 3 leagues and 2200 which would of been great in a week where everyone has struggled.

    Anyone have news on if his likely to miss weeks? Don’t want to burn a trade on him but his gonna leak so much cash and potentially miss a few 🙁
