West Coast Eagles vs Richmond Tigers Preview
Seventh and eighth get together on Sunday in a game that could turn out to be a potential finals preview.
Both sides have won three of their last five games, but it appears the bookies are siding with Richmond on this occasion after the ‘Tiges roared home in the final term last week to defeat Essendon by 22 points in the Dreamtime clash.
The fact last week’s game was played in Perth bodes well for the Tigers, but this is obviously a much tougher test against a West Coast side that played very well against the Blues last week in Sydney.
By the same token though, this is also a big step up in class for the injury-riddled Eagles with Tim Kelly, Jeremy McGovern and Luke Shuey still on the sideline.
West Coast faces a tough few weeks ahead with the Dogs up next after the bye, and with Richmond showing they can not only win on the road, but still shift up to sixth gear when they need to, the Tigers look a good bet to win a close one.
