Streams for West Coast Eagles vs Richmond Tigers




After providing a much needed win against Carlton, now the Eagles have scooted home for a crackerjack against the reigning premiers Richmond, in what could easily be billed as the game of the round.  The Eagles have major injury concerns, but overcame those to defeat Carlton by 22 points, in what was just their 2nd win of the season, away from Perth, they are now 7th but will drop below Richmond if they cannot win here and now.  Richmond are playing decently, but are a bit inconsistent, and find themselves 8th with a 7-5 record so far, and won by 39 points against Essendon at this venue last weekend.  Some showers will not worry these players, at a perfect stadium such as this, that will drain quickly, and not inhibit the players ability to play elite AFL, in front of what should be a full house.

Huge inclusions for the Eagles have been announced, and they will be a much stronger side for the following inclusions; firstly Josh Kennedy returns in the forwards line and is joined by Oscar Allen, his heir apparent, and Liam Duggan who is a key component to an elite defence across half back.  Sheppard was concussed and misses this game, while Williams is unavailable also and O’Neill is again dropped from the team, while Waterman is not included in a slightly surprising non-selection.  Richmond have replaced Prestia with Kane Lambert in their only change, while Collier-Dawkins is not part of their squad either, which is starting to return to full strength, and ought to be very competitive in this fixture.

Up on the Gold Coast, the Tigers were too good for the Eagles in the 2020 season, that was harsh to the Eagles, when they moved away from Perth, for extended spells, to accommodate teams who needed to relocate due to the pandemic.  Last meeting in Perth, the Eagles smashed the Tigers by 47 points, and while that is a few years ago, it shows how strong the Eagles can be here in Perth, and surely puts Richmond on notice to perform here.  Richmond are slight $1.80 favourites, with a negligible handicap margin market suggesting they win by less than a goal, while the Eagles are $2.02.

PREDICTION: West Coast have key forwards back and should win by about 15.

BETTING TIP: $2.40 is nice odds for the Eagles to win by 1-39.
