Game Chat – West Coast vs Richmond

Written by Huttabito on May 20 2018

WHERE AND WHEN: Optus Stadium, Sunday, May 20, 2.40pm AWST

SUMMARY
The Eagles are making a mockery of gloomy pre-season predictions and if Adam Simpson’s men aren’t already considered serious contenders in 2018 they have another opportunity to prove it when reigning premier Richmond comes to town for a blockbuster top-of-the-table clash. West Coast comfortably accounted for the Giants in another valuable road win last round, and returns to the club’s Optus Stadium fortress searching for eight consecutive victories for the first time since 2005. West Coast will be bolstered by Nic Naitanui’s return from suspension and could regain Jeremy McGovern (calf). In-form forward Jack Darling (22 goals), Josh Kennedy (15) and Mark LeCras (15) pose a threat to the Tigers, but Richmond’s small and quick forward line – ranked No.1 for scoring – will worry the Eagles. Superstar Dustin Martin is coming off just 16 touches thanks to Ben Jacobs’ close-checking in Richmond’s tense sixth-straight win over North Melbourne but he torched West Coast last season and how the Eagles counter the Brownlow medallist will be a major talking point.

Hutta’s Tip: West Coast by 5

While we do our best to update posts with end of quarter scores, we aren’t always online so if you have access to the scores and see they haven’t gone into the Comments section of this post, the Community would love it if you could help us out.

    1. Just brought him in. Seriously fuck this ground, Venables, Ryan, Walters in my side, next time it will be Fyfe. Also to blame for buddy for all of his wonders and for Joey Danger doing his groin for my team.
