Game notes: West Coast has been copping it from all angles since last Sunday’s last-quarter meltdown against Collingwood cost them a crucial victory in the race for September. The Eagles have slipped back outside the top eight and coach Adam Simpson is under pressure to find answers to the Eagles’ ongoing issues around clearances and inability to close-out games. West Coast has been in every match – apart from horror losses to Hawthorn and Essendon – during final quarters but has only a 9-8 record to show for it. The bottom-placed Lions come to town buoyed by their fourth win – a five-goal triumph over Carlton – but Chris Fagan’s men have been weakened by star midfielder Dayne Zorko’s one-match suspension. His absence will be a major blow for a young side which has lost its last six to West Coast and past seven times at Subiaco.
Mottsy’s Tip: West Coast by 50
