Western Bulldogs vs West Coast Eagles Preview
The Dogs and Eagles have produced some memorable clashes over the years, and hopefully, this Sunday’s game will be another one to savour.
There was plenty to like about the Doggies performance in their 16-point win over Collingwood last week.
Adam Treloar was the main man in focus, and while he wasn’t the BOG, he managed 18 disposals including five clearances, but it was the work of veteran recruit Stefan Martin and Tim English along with the Doggies midfield that ensured the Dogs got the job done.
West Coast was able to run away from a plucky Gold Coast Suns with a 25-point win last weekend, thanks to their efforts in an epic final quarter after trailing by 1 point at three-quarter-time.
The likes of Dom Sheed, Shannon Hurn and Tim Kelly led the way with forward Oscar Allen kicking four.
There are always questions about the Eagles ability to win outside of Perth, and with Victoria/somewhat normal programming back in the AFL for now, a win over the Dogs at Marvel Stadium would make people stand and take notice.
However, it is hard to go past the Western Bulldogs and best to play it safe when it comes to the Eagles in Victoria.
I’ll take the Dogs to cover the line.
