Where and When: Metricon Stadium, Sunday 6 September 2020 at 6:10pm (AEST)
Last time they met: Rd 11, 2019: West Coast 21.7 (133) def Western Bulldogs 10.12 (72) at Optus Stadium
Match Preview: The Bulldogs are running out of time if they want to play finals footy, so it is not a great time to meet one of their bogey teams. West Coast have won their last five matches against the Doggies and, despite their dislike of playing footy in Queensland, they played decent footy against the Bombers last round. West Coast will be without Shuey and Hurn which may hurt their on-ground leadership so if the Dogs want to end their losing streak to the Eagles, this may be the week to do it.
Supercoach Watch: West Coast – Natanui owners will be happy to see that Bailey Williams is out while Tim Kelly owners will be happy that Luke Shuey is out. Gaff has also returned to form in recent weeks while Dom Sheed could be a smokey to have a good run to end the season.
Western Bulldogs -I will be shocked if there are many Supercoach teams that don’t have a single Bulldogs’ player. With Macrae, Bontempelli, Dunkley, Johannisen, Bailey Smith, English and Lachie Hunter, the Dogs are surely the most Supercoach relevant team in the AFL in 2020.
Thommo Watch: Macrae gets the VC duties for the Tribe this week: Here’s hoping he can rack up 30+ possies, 5+ tackles and marks and perhaps a goal…
Thommo’s Tip: West Coast by 2 goals.
