West Coast
16.7 (103)
9.8 (62)
Domain Stadium


The Western Derby is set for another epic installment. Both sides have had an up and down start to season, and will now look to cement a spot inside the top eight.

Fremantle barely scraped past North Melbourne at home last week, while West Coast did not enjoy the trip down to Melbourne to play the Hawks.

The Dockers midfield is beginning to hit its straps, with Nat Fyfe leading his side well in the dying minutes of their round five win over North. The Eagles on the other hand are likely to have a few outs and Sam Mitchell is unlikely to make his return.

Despite this, the Eagles will have a point to prove after going down to a 0-4 side last week. They will welcome the return to Domain Stadium, and should be too good for Fremantle in this one.

Tip: Eagles by 18.
