AFL Live West Coast Eagles vs GWS Giants Stream AFL Football 2015 Online, AFL Round 05 Match will be kick off at Domain Stadium, Perth, Western Australia, Australia Saturday 02 May 2015 online, 19.40pm (AEDT) and its broadcast on Channel Seven, Foxtell.
Surprisingly the GWS Giants are currently second on the ladder and they look to extend their stay in the top eight against the Eagles.
The Giants make one forced change with Rhys Palmer (shoulder) replaced by crafty forward Will Hoskin-Elliot. The Eagles have added Patrick McGinnity, Jamie Bennell and Callum Sinclair for Scott Lycett, Matt Rosa (hamstring) and Jackson Nelson.
The Giants have three wins over Melbourne, St Kilda and Gold Coast with a loss to Sydney. The rank first in handballs, third in points per game and fourth with inside 50s per game. The Eagles are 2-2 in eight position on the ladder and have scored the most points this season.
Josh Kennedy v Joel Patfull – The Eagles spearhead has kicked 18 goals in three games against the Giants including 11 last year. Kennedy has made a habit of beating up on poor teams but with Patfull, Davis and Haynes making up a nice defensive pairing, Kennedy will not have it all his own way this time.
West Coast have beaten GWS twice by 100, 81 and 111 points in their three match-ups. GWS have lost all four of their games in Perth and 0-4 against the line. In fact their average losing margin is 98-points in the west. Luke Shuey has 6 Brownlow votes in his three games against the Giants. The Giants have covered the line in their last three games.
Very keen on the Giants. The line has moved from 10.5 into 8.5 at time of writing with plenty of support coming for the GWS youngsters on the back of their demolishing of Gold Coast. They have the midfielders to cover the vast expanses of Subiaco whilst Jeremy Cameron and Cameron McCarthy should cause headaches for West Coast defenders. Go Giants!
