Where and when: Kardinia Park, 1:45pm (AEST)
Last time they met: R9 2020: West Coast 11.7 (73) DEF Geelong 10.4 (64) at Optus Stadium.
Geelong looked on track for a mighty upset when Zach Tuohy kicked his side almost four goals clear early in the second half, only for the Eagles to slowly wear their rivals down. Josh Kennedy proved the difference, booting three of his four majors in a thrilling final term to lead West Coast to an 11.7 (73) to 10.4 (64) win. Tom Stewart was a leviathan down back for the Cats, who were also well served by the silky skilled Mitch Duncan, superstar Patrick Dangerfield and Zach Tuohy in his new forward role.
Match Preview: Interesting match this one with both teams sitting on 3 wins and coming off a soft win (North and Collingwood). Dangerfield returned last week but 75 points was nothing to write home about. His owners will be hoping the familiar surrounds of Kardinia Park get his season going.
