Australian Football League Live Western Bulldogs vs West Coast Eagles Live Stream Free, AFL 2017 Seasons Week 15. Western Bulldogs vs West Coast Eagles match will be kickoff at Etihad Stadium, Melbourne, Docklands, Victoria, Australia, Saturday 01 July 2017 online, 13:45 pm (AEDT) and its broadcast on Channel Seven, Foxtell.
The Western Bulldogs are in all sorts, down to ninth on the ladder following just two wins in their last six matches. They enter this off a one-point win over North Melbourne, another unconvincing performance. The Bulldogs have conceded 100-plus in their last two after doing so just once in their first 11.
West Coast have won just one of their last five matches and are clinging onto seventh spot on the ladder. The Eagles enter this off a close three-point loss to Melbourne on home turf. West Coast have now gone seven straight games without scoring 100 points. The Eagles are 2-4 on the road this year.
West Coast journeyed to Port Adelaide in Round 7 and came away with a 10 point win and it was their midfielders that set up the victory, including Matt Priddis, who picked up 16 contested disposals, while Mark LeCras starred up forward with four goals.
On the same night, the Western Bulldogs begun slowly against Richmond but escaped with a five point win. It was the usual suspects that were prominent including Luke Dahlhaus, Marcus Bontempelli and Lachie Hunter, while small forward, Clay Smith, was a match winner late in the game.
The Dogs venture to Domain Stadium for the second time this season after losing to Fremantle by 16 points in Round 3 and despite claiming the Elimination Final at Domain last year, they have generally been very ordinary at the venue.
West Coast escaped with no fresh injuries out of their Port Adelaide game although Liam Duggan was a late withdrawal. Duggan may come back in at the expense of his replacement, Mark Hutchings.
Jake Stringer and Josh Dunkley will miss the trip to Perth after pulling up with injuries. Mitch Wallis is a strong chance of making his return from a broken leg, while Jack Redpath has some strong form at VFL level and booted six goals last weekend.
The two sides met most recently in the 2016 Elimination Final and it was the Bulldogs that scored a 47-point win as underdogs, before going on their remarkable run to the premiership.
On that occasion Caleb Daniel and Luke Dahlhaus found plenty of the ball, while Andrew Gaff was among West Coast’s best. The Dogs have won their past two against West Coast but the Eagles have had the upper hand at Domain, winning the four prior encounters to the finals bout last year. Those wins came at a whopping average margin of 83 points.
The Western Bulldogs can back up their Elimination Final showing from last year with a strong performance. Take the with the start.
