Game Chat – Sydney v West Coast Eagles

Written by Father Dougal on July 4 2021

Where and When:  1:10pm at GMHBA Stadium

What it means for the Swans: They are 8-6, just like the Eagles. They want to be 9-6, they really do not want to be 8-7.  

What it means for the Eagles:  They are 8-6, just like the Swans. They want to be 9-6, they really do not want to be 8-7. 

For both teams, this is huge huge huge.  Could be the match the ends up deciding who makes finals. Sure, the loser might still get in, but 9-6 is a lot better than 8-7.


Supercoach Watch: 

Swans: Lloyd! Warner, Mills,  Heeney

Eagles:  Yeo! (Kidding less than last time)  Nic Nat…Gaff? 


Father Dougal’s Watch:  Heeney, the big will he or won’t he. 

Father Dougal’s Tip:  I’m stumped.  I’m guessing the Eagles, but that is pretty much a guess, and I think from their having a more mature and experienced squad.

  1. I started with Heeney and held him all year. Gotta be one of my worst ever starting picks. He’s shaping up to be a $350k starting option next year. Just don’t.

    1. dont forget dow …

      they were my two worst starting: Dow instead of Impey and CRipps instead of Walsh … killed the season in those first 6 weeks, along with the injuries to Danger and Dunks etc … which were the reasons kept missing chances to get rid of Cripps and Dow …

  4. I think this may be the most wrong tip I have made all year,. OMG I did not see this coming.


  5. Godammit, West Coast.

    If you’re going to subject me to this sh*t, atleast let Heeney kick a couple fml.


    1. WTF is wrong with Heeney this year??? He’s looking disinterested half the time … half hearted efforts …


      1. he makes woeful efforts at getting involved, when he gets it his disposal efficiency is like a young rookie mid onballer just diving on a ball in traffic and handballing / kicking without looking etc … which it shouldn’t be like in the role he is playing … he’s really fallen off a cliff … I can’t remember if he’d signed a long term deal??? Thus no need to make the harder efforts??? …. and as I type, he finally takes a decent mark … and misses from right in front … sheesh
