    Match preview:

    The Greater Western Sydney Giants and West Coast Eagles meet at Spotless Stadium in a crucial clash of the AFL competition. Join The Roar for live scores and commentary from 1:45pm (AEST).

    It is a tale of two teams with differing fortunes that opens the Saturday action in the AFL. The Eagles continue to surprise many with their stellar form and with only the superb Tigers ahead of them on the ladder, their season has begun in the best way possible.

    The Giants are a different kettle of fish early in the season. Burdened with injuries and still playing a little out of sync, they are yet to hit their straps and will look to knock off one of the form teams without key personnel and any impressive form.

    It’s a shame that so many key players are out for the Giants and even more disappointing that a certain key ruckman will be missing for the Eagles, after what many consider to be an unlucky suspension.

    Prediction
    The home-ground advantage the Eagles enjoy in Perth can never be underestimated and this is a game where it could be exposed. The Giants have been anything but impressive and will need to find something or else risk slipping out of the eight come the end of the weekend.

    This is the day where they will make a stand and make this a cracking contest. GWS will get the better of the Eagles and end up with a tight win to solidify their title claims.

    Giants by three goals.

    Catch all the action on The Roar, with live coverage from 1:45pm (AEST).

      The Eagles are a tough, disciplined side this year. They have a really good balance of players in all areas of the ground. Eagles v Tigers next week will be huge!

      The Eagles march on with their seventh win in a row and the Giants will lick their wounds once again.

      There is no doubt the Giants will be better once the injury list shrinks and players return, however today’s effort still saw many in the team play well below standard. Losing three to injury at different stages during the game made things near impossible and will be a contributing factor yet the Eagles started better in the first quarter and looked the better team for most of the first half.

      The usual suspects of Kennedy and Darling were the key targets for the Eagles up front and they converted when required to keep the home side at bay. With some significant outs for the Eagles as well, they will take a lot of confidence into the clash with Richmond on their home turf next weekend.
