Australian Football Live West Coast Eagles vs Fremantle Dockers JLT Series Stream AFL 2017 Pre Seasons Week 02 match will be kick off at Wonthella Oval Stadium, Wonthella, Western Australia, Australia, Saturday 25 February 2017 online, 15.40 pm (AEDT) and its broadcast on Channel Seven, Foxtell.
Western Australia’s mid-west population has a strong passion for AFL, with over 10,000 fans having purchased their tickets to sit or stand on the grassed sloped banks at Wonthella Oval.
It is just one week short of 14 years since the last AFL pre-season game was played at the same venue and on that occasion Fremantle took on Richmond.
On that day the temperature peaked at 35.8 degrees Celcius and it was reported the players lost as much as three kilograms of their body weight.
This year, with an extremely warm 37C day forecast, both sides will be able to use an extended bench so they can rotate their full 29-man squads with an option to delay the game’s start time by 30 minutes.
Saturday’s forecast is for a sunny morning, with a 20 per cent chance of a shower or a thunderstorm in the early afternoon.
