AFL Live West Coast Eagles vs St Kilda Saints Stream AFL 2017 Seasons Round 02 match will be kick off at Domain Stadium, Subiaco, Western Australia, Australia, Saturday 01 April 2017 online, 19:40 pm (AEDT) and its broadcast on Channel Seven, Foxtell.
St Kilda makes the big trek out to Western Australia on Saturday April 1 to take on the West Coast Eagles at Domain Stadium in Perth.
The Saints will be looking to put an opening round loss behind them but it will not be easy against an Eagles side that head in as firm favourite’s at their home ground.
The Round 2 clash gets underway at 6.40PM AEST and can be seen on Fox Sports 3. AFL Live Vision is also available to ALL CrownBet members. Every Match, wherever you are.
West Coast burst out of the blocks in Round 1, running out impressive 43-point winners over North Melbourne at Etihad Stadium on Sunday.
At the same venue the day before, St Kilda’s run against Melbourne came to an end, going down to the Demons by 30 points.
The Eagles return to their happy hunting ground of Domain Stadium and have been posted as $1.15 fancies in the head-to-head betting. They have thrashed St Kilda at this venue in the past two years.
Josh Kennedy looms as a danger player for St Kilda, while the likes of Mark LeCras, Patrick Cripps and Elliot Yeo will also need to be contained by the Saints. That quartet combined for 16 goals against the Roos last weekend.
After struggling interstate last season, St Kilda has made performing on the road a priority. But without the injured Nick Riewoldt, the Saints will need their other leaders to stand up, including Jack Steven, David Armitage and Leigh Montagna. Armitage was quiet against Melbourne in Round 1, while Montagna missed with injury.
In the middle of the ground, West Coast should have too many guns. Former Hawthorn champion, Sam Mitchell, made his mark for the club last weekend and with Matt Priddis, Andrew Gaff and Luke Shuey to help out, the Eagles should dominate at the stoppages.
