    The West Coast Eagles and Geelong Cats will clash at Domain Stadium with both teams fresh off the bye looking to jump start their second half of the season. Join The Roar for live scores and a blog of the match starting from 8:10pm (AEST).

    Both sides are coming into this game with complete opposite form lines with West Coast having lost their last three matches while Geelong winning their last three matches.

    Before the break the Eagles put in another bad performance away from home losing by three points to Gold Coast.

    They will be without spearhead Josh J Kennedy once again which was their downfall against the Suns not being able to find a focal point up forward.

    This will be the first time in three matches that Geelong have left Simmonds Stadium after putting together three impressive victories against fellow top eight contenders Western Bulldogs, Adelaide and Port Adelaide.

    Adam Simpson will be looking for a big game from his midfield brigade going up against Dangerwood and now younger Selwood brother Scott who has brought the pressure in his first three games back laying a huge 44 tackles.

    West Coast have dropped another two senior players this week with Josh Hill and Sam Butler not making the cut and making way for young key defender Tom Barrass and medium defender Tom Cole.

    Geelong will go into the game without key forward Tom Hawkins who was suspended for a jumper punch on Matt Crouch before the bye and will be resting Mark Blicavs for the trip. They welcome back ruckmen Rhys Stanley and small defender Jed Bews.

    Prediction
    This game is a tough one to decide who will win with both sides missing their best forward. West Coast at home are formidable and Geelong not being at Simmonds Stadium which they play better than elsewhere makes this intriguing. I am going to side with West Coast by the barest of margins with zero confidence at all.

    West Coast by 2.

      Nothing learnt from last night. Both teams win at home. Both teams are average on the road. Both teams are scarily overrated. Carlton are much closer to a flag than both of them.

      Oh well, maybe Eagles are not mummies boys now, but i guess they’ll still be flat track bullies until they bring that intensity against a good side in an away game? a few games at home now may help their win-loss ratio, but maybe not their away form. Is it a re-booted Eagles to finals now or just another aberration? Mitchell doesnt deserve to be rubbed out by mrp after nearly being rubbed out by selwood?
      Shuey might cop one, but good to see him and a few others unleash their inner dog! I thought eagles 2nd tier stood up tonight, finally, particularly Duggan-finally got to see his potential, just needs more composure, but some great 2nd even 3rd attempts, one was exceptional. Cole handled himself well. Cant wait to see Venables and Partington hit the paddock soon. Jetta got so hot he nearly set his own pants on fire at one stage!? Big Ezy got the hang of it again, welcome back. Gov may be a good interceptor but he was a lousy kick on goal, needs to work on that. there are a lot of wayward kicks on goal these days, wonder if its all the gut running, weak and wobbly legs? the cats didnt give up, to their credit, it couldve easily swung their way and nearly did, given the hefty margin at one stage. Eagles took their foot off the gas and leaked a couple of easy goals.

      Win some, lose some. Had hoped our dud coach would have figured out how to win after a bye, 7 byes – 7 straight loses. The standard of umpiring, both ways, was hideous and unacceptable, that is all I will say on that. A thirteen point loss on the road with one man down for nearly the whole game and two men down for a half is not the end of the world.

      Dangerwood tried their guts out but can’t say the same for several other Cats who looked like they were dogging it. Guthrie has to be dropped to the VFL. He just isn’t interested in doing any hard work. Murdoch is similar and should be dropped. Motlop is a slacker as well. Bews is nowhere near AFL standard, is serioysly lacking skill. The players need to get together and discuss what level of effort is required to get a place in the team. It ain’t going to be helped by Chris Scott because he has always let it be known that mediocrity is good enough. First things first – Guthrie haa to be dropped to let others know that half-arsed efforts are not to be tolerated.

          Don its fair enough to think Geelong will come out firing at home after their precious egos were shattered by west coast.
          I hope freo prove me wrong as I see Geelong as the most over rated team out there.

      FULLTIME

      Match Report

      West Coast have come away with a 13 point victory against Geelong on Thursday night football to end their 3 game losing streak.

      The home side came out all guns blazing with their pressure and it showed with a 19point lead at quarter time thanks largely to Jack Darling who was backing back into everypack and Mitchell leading from the middle.

      It was much the same in the 2nd term with relent pressure coming from everywhere. They could have been further infront at halftime if it wasnt for some way would kicking. Espcially from Cripps who had 1.3 at the main break.

      Dangerfield was doing everything he can leading the way with 20 touches and ending the game with a total of 33.His partner in crime Selwood didnt managed to impose himself on the game at any stage. While Duncan Battled hard with 32touches.

      There was a pulse from Geelong in the 3rd term and if it wasnt for some wayward kicking they may have been closer then the 26point margin. Taylor and Parsons had 4shots between them but only combined for 1.2

      Much like the start of the 3rd term the Cats came out all guns blazing and got the margin to as low as 12points in the final term thanks to Stanley and Taylor goals.

      Thankfully for Adam Simpson his men steadied and late goals to Gaff and Jetta seal the game.

      Luke Shuey and Sam Mitchell were the best for West Coast in the midfield tonight with 32 and 29touches respectively. While Darling competed hard up forward all night long.

      West Coast stay in perth next week as they take on Melbourne while Geelong will go back to Simmonds as they welcome the other perth side Fremantle.
