Australian Football League Live West Coast Eagles vs Fremantle Dockers Stream Free, AFL 2017 Seasons Week 06. West Coast Eagles vs Fremantle Dockers match will be kickoff at Domain Stadium, Subiaco, Western Australia, Australia, Saturday 29 April 2017 online, 20:10 pm (AEDT) and its broadcast on Channel Seven, Foxtell.
One of the big games of AFL Round 6 will be when the West Coast Eagles take on the Fremantle Dockers in the Western Derby on Saturday night, April 29.
The Eagles head in as favourite’s for the encounter but it should be a tight one against the rejuvenated Dockers.
First bounce is at 6.10PM AWST or 8.10PM AEST and the game will be broadcast on Fox Sports. AFL Live Vision is also available to ALL CrownBet members. Every Match, wherever you are.
Both sides sit with a win-loss record of 3-2 and it is West Coast that are 7th on the ladder, just edging the 8th placed Dockers due to superior percentage.
The winner will advance to be 4-2 and will be well positioned after six rounds, while the loser will be back with the field. The Dockers have the slightly superior recent form, winning three on the trot, including two at Domain Stadium.
One of those wins was against the premiers from last year, the Western Bulldogs, while they stole a victory at the death last weekend against North Melbourne, coming back from seven points down with two minutes left on the clock to win by five.
West Coast come off a loss to Hawthorn at the MCG last weekend by 50 points but should be much better suited back at Domain Stadium. Their two losses have both been at the MCG in season 2017, while they have defeated St Kilda and Sydney in their two appearances at Domain.
On paper, West Coast appear to have too much depth but the Dockers have the momentum and Aaron Sandilands and Nathan Fyfe have been combining beautifully. That pair, who missed most of 2016, have teamed up to help Freo become the competition’s 2nd best side for clearances so far this year, while the Eagles are 9th.
After the effort against Hawthorn, we can expect to see an improvement from the Eagles midfielders and Luke Shuey, Andrew Gaff and Matt Priddis can be influential, while West Coast’s aerialists up forward can also worry the Dockers.
Josh Kennedy is ranked 4th in the competition for goals and contested marks, while Jeremy McGovern leads the competition for contested marks. McGovern was used as a forward last weekend but may be better suited down back.
The game is the 45th between the two sides and it is the Eagles with the overall advantage at 24-20.
