Game Notes: The 46th and, almost certainly, final Western Derby at Domain Stadium, has plenty riding on it. The Eagles’ top-eight bid is on shaky ground after a deflating home loss to Port Adelaide – their third defeat in four games at their one-time fortress – and coach Adam Simpson is searching for answers to his side’s inconsistency. The return of injured spearhead Josh Kennedy, who has booted 13 goals in the past two derbies, can’t come soon enough. Fremantle’s young side is riding high after snapping a five-game losing streak in thrilling fashion against North Melbourne, with debutant Ryan Nyhuis booting four goals. Skipper Nat Fyfe is coming off his best game for the season and looks to have his explosive power back, and Freo’s midfield – even without Aaron Sandilands – could hold the key to the contest. The Eagles have won four consecutive derbies to lead the overall tally 25-20, but the Dockers will fancy their chances and can keep their slim finals hopes alive – and derail West Coast’s season – with victory on Sunday.
If we get anything like the highlights contained in this package, I’ll be happy.
Mottsy’s Tip: West Coast by 15.
