THE TEAM NEWS

WEST COAST EAGLES

  • West Coast Eagles continued their superb run of form as they overcame Geelong Cats last week as they made it five straight wins to improve to 6-3 for the season.
  • The Eagles had to dig deep to earn that win as they were defeated in both quarters of the first half which saw them trail by 16 points at the half but they produced a brilliant second half display to fight back from that and claim a 73-64 win.
  • The Eagles have lost Harry Edwards to injury while Brayden Ainsworth has been dropped so Jack Redden and Josh Rotham come into the side as West Coast look to extend their winning streak.

CARLTON

  • Carlton failed to build on their win over North Melbourne as they were defeated by Hawthorn and they must find a way to end their inconsistent nature which has seen them drop to 4-5.
  • The Blues got off to a great start as they led 31-12 at the culmination of the first quarter but that was as good as it got for Carlton as they found themselves comfortably behind at the half before succumbing to a 58-89 loss.
  • To make matters worse for the Blues, they have now lost Harry McKay and David Cunningham to injury while Callum Moore is dropped so Zac Fisher and Tom De Koning are called up and Matthew Cottrell will debut.

THE PREDICTION

West Coast Eagles continue to climb up the AFL ladder on the back of a superb run of form and they can end the round in the top four if they can make it six straight wins as they host Carlton. The Blues lost last week as they blew a strong first quarter lead against Hawthorn and their inability to put a winning run together is harming their chances of making the finals. The Eagles look a real handful at present and this is likely to be another victory for them here.
