THE TEAM NEWS

WEST COAST EAGLES

  • West Coast Eagles suffered a frustrating start to their campaign but they look to have turned the corner after earning a third consecutive victory by seeing off Fremantle last week.
  • The Eagles were comfortable victors and restricted the Dockers to just 32 points, meaning they have conceded a total of just 109 points in their last three matches, allowing no more than 43 points in any of those contests.
  • There is just the solitary change to the Eagles’ line-up this week and it is an enforced one with Brandon Ah Chee ruled out with an injury so Luke Shey is called-up in his place.

COLLINGWOOD

  • Collingwood earned an impressive victory at Geelong Cats last week as the Magpies laid down a marker and their Premiership credentials will be tested once again this week.
  • Back-to-back wins against Hawthorn and the Cats improved the Magpies’ record to 4-2-1 and a third straight win will put them in a strong position on the AFL ladder thru Round 8.
  • However, they must come into this without the influential Jordan De Goey after he collected an injury last week while Travis Varoce is also injured and Atu Bosenavulagi is dropped so Darcy Cameron, Josh Thomas and Matthew Scharenberg come into the side.

THE PREDICTION

Both West Coast Eagles and Collingwood will hope to be competing for the Premiership at the end of the season and this game could tell us a lot about the two teams. The Eagles have won three in a row while the Magpies have earned successive wins against tricky opposition. The visitors will be confident but the loss of Jordan De Goey could be pivotal and the hosts should be able to take advantage to come out on top to make it four consecutive wins.
