AFL Live West Coast Eagles vs St Kilda Saints Stream AFL Football 2015 Online, AFL Round 23 Match will be kick off at Domain Stadium, Perth, Western Australia, Australia Saturday 05 September 2015 online, 19.20 pm (AEDT) and its broadcast on Channel Seven, Foxtell.
The St Kilda Saints look to rebound from a 97-point loss to Sydney but against a West Coast side that needs to win to maintain a home final in week one, that looks unlikely.
The Eagles have Chris Masten (suspension), Sharrod Wellingham (ankle) and Will Schofield (hamstring) to welcome back into their side. Jeremy McGovern needs to overcome a shoulder injury in order to play. They are likely to be missing as many as three of their best 22. The Saints will have Adam Schneider (retired) out from last week with Jack Lonie, Blake Acres and Eli Templeton in line for selection.
The Eagles are second on the ladder but were absolutely smoked by Adelaide last weekend. They have split their last four games 2-2. They are 9-0-1 (9-1 against the line) vs bottom-ten sides this season. The Saints have lost four of their last five games (with one draw).
The Eagles and Saints have met 43 times with the Eagles leading 25-17 with one draw. The Eagles have won the last five in a row games by 4, 30, 25, 33 and 53 points. The Eagles have covered the line a league record 15 times this year. The Eagles are 15-7 both head-to-head and against the line at home in 2014-15. West Coast is 9-2 at home this year with an average winning margin of 63-points – losing to Fremantle and Hawthorn. St Kilda is only 3-17 (7-13 against the line) outside of Melbourne since the start of 2013. West Coast is 4-0 head-to-head and ATL following a loss this year. Six of the last eight match-ups have totalled under 174-points. Josh Kennedy has kicked the first goal in four matches this year. Eagles midfielder Matt Priddis has topped the stats sheet in six games this year
Yet another lacklustre final round game with another thrasing on the cards. The Eagles have responded well after every loss this year, winning by 50-points or more following three of their defeats in 2015 and The Wolf is backing that trend to continue here. The Saints are spluttering towards the end of the year and a trip to Perth is likely to see end their season with a sour taste. West Coast to win by plenty.
