AFL Live Carlton Blues vs West Coast Eagles Streaming Free 2018 Regular Seasons week 05 match will be kick off at MCG Stadium, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, Saturday 21 April 2018 online, 16:35 pm (AEDT) and its broadcast on Channel Seven, Foxtell.
Carlton produced one terrific quarter against the reigning premiers in Round 1, since It’s been a tough start to the season for Blues. After kicking the first five goals against Richmond, the Blues have been outscored 66 goals to 34.
The most concerning aspect of these losses for Blues fans is, they have been steadily regressing in every match. Their 86-point loss to North Melbourne last Saturday was embarrassing.
Blues head coach Brendon Bolton spoke post game, saying “It’s not what we stand for. We need far more contributors, particularly in and around the contested ball and ground-ball gets.”
Nothing went right for Carlton, as skipper Marc Murphy pulled out only three minutes before the game with a foot injury.
Looking on the positives for the Blues, the Western Bulldogs have shown, nothing is ever as bad as it seems. With the closeness of the competition, a few good weeks can put any team right back in the hunt in 2018.
It’s only Round 5, but the West Coast Eagles are already exceeding expectations in 2018. They are sitting second on the ladder behind the Giants and are 3-1 with three convincing victories. The Eagles broke their travelling hoodoo in Round 2, with a 51-point win over the Western Bulldogs at Etihad Stadium.
The Eagles are coming off a 80-point thrashing of the Gold Coast Suns. The Eagles kicked 17 goals to six after quarter-time and celebrated Marc LeCras and Nic Naitanui’s milestone games in terrific fashion.
Elliot Yeo finished with a game-high 33 disposals, 11 marks and five tackles. Andrew Gaff and Chris Mastern both picked up over 30 possessions while big man Josh Kennedy booted five goals.
