AFL Live Western Bulldogs vs West Coast Eagles Streaming Free 2018 Regular Seasons week 02 match will be kick off at Etihad Stadium, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, Sunday 01 Apri 2018 online, 15:20 pm (AEDT) and its broadcast on Channel Seven, Foxtell.
Both the West Coast Eagles and Western Bulldogs started 2018 winless. It will be a clash of two desperate teams at Etihad Stadium on Easter Sunday at 3:20pm (AEDT).
The Western Bulldogs got humiliated in Round 1, but are favourites to bounce back with a victory over the Eagles. All the action can be watched on Channel 7 and Fox Footy, starting at 3:00pm.
Only 18 months ago the Western Bulldogs were the best team in the competition, taking all before them to win the Grand Final, defeating the Sydney Swans in arguably the best match in the clubs history.
Now, the Western Bulldogs have lost their identity. The Manic pressure that saw them climb to the top of the football world is well and truly gone. The leaders are questioning themselves and the Dogs look lost.
Round 1 was nothing more than a training drill for the GWS Giants. The Giants got away to a fast start, before the Dogs kicked three consecutive goals to end the first quarter. In the final three quarters, the Giants kicked 16 goals to four.
It’s only one match, but it is hard to see the Dogs finding anywhere near that form that they captured in 2016. It’s a case of, how far will the Dogs fall?
The West Coast Eagles came away winless from their first match at Optus Stadium. The Swans proved too good, winning by 29 points, but there were positive signs for the Eagles.
Nic Naitanui showed that his best footy is still in front of him after 19 months on the sidelines, recovering from his ruptured ACL. Naitanui finished with 12 disposals, 33 hitouts and a goal that almost brought the new Stadium down as the Eagles closed to within 11 points in the third quarter.
Lance Franklin again proved himself as one of the best players in the competition. Franklin finished with eight goals and 21 possessions, getting the Swans the four points.
