Back on the winners list, the West Coast Eagles will be hoping for another confidence-booster against the winless Adelaide Crows at The Gabba. Join The Roar for live scores from 3:05pm (AEST).
It was shaping up to be a horror stay on the Gold Coast for the Eagles, before they finally notched their second win of the season against Sydney last week. The pre-season premiership favourites still have a lot of work to do to silence their critics but, with a long stretch of home games coming up, could be just about to turn the corner.
For their opponents, 2020 is shaping up as a year to forget. Adelaide have been battered from pillar to post under first-year coach Matthew Nicks and another loss here would move them to 0-6 – their equal-worst start to a season in club history. They may be rebuilding, but there’s too much talent on the list for them to be this poor and supporters are demanding a lift.
West Coast have a strong recent record against the Crows, winning four of the past five encounters. They won both matches last season, by 12 points in Adelaide and by ten in Perth. Both clubs had long winning streaks at The Gabba prior to last season and have both lost two games in a row at the venue since.
