Game Chat – West Coast vs Gold Coast

Written by Huttabito on April 14 2018

WHERE AND WHEN: Optus Stadium, Saturday, April 14, 6.10pm AWST

West Coast is riding strong momentum after a stunning late surge secured an unforgettable first win at Optus Stadium over Geelong and the Eagles will be determined to celebrate Mark LeCras’ 200th match and Nic Naitanui’s 150th game in style. The pair have been in excellent form so far in 2018, with LeCras booting eight goals and Naitanui exerting a massive influence on the Eagles’ engine room coming back from his knee reconstruction. The Eagles hope to regain spearhead Josh Kennedy from injury, but a youthful forward line has exceeded expectations in his absence and West Coast’s firepower will worry the Suns. Gold Coast was disappointing against Fremantle last Saturday, suffering a first loss under Stuart Dew. The Suns have stayed over in Perth after selling that ‘home’ game to the Dockers and will need a big performance from co-captain Tom Lynch if they are to score just their second win from 12 games in Perth.

  4. Best two rookies to field
    TU: Waterman & Henry
    TD: Henry & Fritsch
    Comment : Waterman & Fritsch

    Concerned Waterman’s output will be restricted with JJK’s return.


      1. Yeah, with the E on Garlett. I knew Henry didn’t play until tomorrow, and just figured West Coast had another Sunday game.

        Guess I’ll just hold Ryan for the next 11 weeks now…


    1. Yeo last week has been my worst, I believe.

      He seems to understand he absolutely screwed me, and is delivering so far tonight.


  5. Dang…I finally fielded Holman tonight after having him riding the pine over the first 3 rounds. No loop in the mids.



      1. Ya just the 1 that I’m seeing. I’ll be watching the replay to assess. Seems like a lot of teams have him on field though (and how could you not after watching the tackles and on-ball activity on the film)!

        So minor crisis may be averted there.

        With his BE and the3 week AVG pretty good, he should still pocket us some good gains. Great rookie to have this year. And no reason he can’t bounce back from this game!


    1. Also in other news, glad to see JJK having a crack. Held him through that (I don’t know, I think the team called it a…) ‘two week injury’ (…that lasted much longer than that…) in 2017. As an SC fan he drives me nuts when he is on my team (he is not this year…and won’t be…maybe for Finals, but I’ll worry about that later!(…1 round at a time)). As a footy fan, however, I can’t help cheering for the man! Way to go JJK. Good to have you back!


  6. Ouch… get everybody on a plane back to QLD and act like you were neeever in WA boys…
    Expect a few to get dropped after that performance.

    Maybe next week….
