On paper West Coast versus Gold Coast at Optus Stadium threatens as a massacre, but in the context of the season it is a serious danger game for the Eagles. The Suns have nothing to lose while the Eagles have a premiership defence in jeopardy if they drop another game at their fortress and three on the hop. Join The Roar for live scores and blogging from 8:10pm AEST.

West Coast have played two very poor matches following three dominant performances, in Rounds 2 and 3 they loomed as a genuine contender, knocking off Collingwood yet again at the MCG and dismantling a hot GWS.

But in the past two weeks, the Eagles best asset has been kept quiet, collectively kicking only 99 points in a fortnight.

West Coasts prolific forward line has been down but isn’t to take the full blame. The midfield’s ability to win the contested ball and delivery simply hasn’t been of reigning premiers standard.

The Suns have impressed all this year, collecting three wins already and competing with sides for the best part of four quarters.

Alex Sexton has been a revelation for the Gold Coast this year kicking 15 goals in the first six rounds.

He will no doubt be accompanied closely by Brad Sheppard in Saturday’s clash, which warns as an electric contest between two athletic youngsters.

Prediction
This game will go one of two ways, Gold Coast could cause an upset which will probably be one of the greatest wins in their short history or the Eagles will demolish the Suns.

Saturday’s weather forecast in Perth looms as a fairly wet match. If the rain comes, it’ll be a perfect opportunity for the Eagles to answer to their contested ball critics.
