West Coast have came out from a late-season AFL fall with a great win over Brisbane, although could pay the worth by losing 2 stars for important coming matches.
The 5th positioned Eagles' 28.7 (175) to 12.5 (77) whipping of the Lions at the Patersons Stadium boosted their momentum after huge losses to Adelaide and Sydney.
However the loss of the midfield player Daniel Kerr, who is out from second half with hamstring injury, as well as the report and possible suspension of the Captain Darren Glass for the head-high knock on Lions equal Jonathan Brown which could make a hard run home even tougher
. The Eagles pushed their proportion above that of the fourth-positioned Collingwood and the third- positioned Crows, who both have one more win which giving hope that they might grab a important double chance. However they face a terribly difficult last 5 rounds, starting with derby against Fremantle on Saturday and including further clashes with Geelong, the Magpies as well as 2nd placed Hawthorn. Lions' finals hopes are well over.
Although 9th positioned Fremantle and tenth- positioned St Kilda are still in touch on Sunday after wins. Port Adelaide defeated The Dockers by 11.9 (75) to 6.12 (48) at the AAMI Stadium. However, after leading by forty four points at the final change, they could regret failing to ram home their plus point, as a greatest win could have lifted them over eighth North Melbourne. The Saints whipped the Western Bulldogs by 16.22 (118) to 6.6 (42) at the Etihad Stadium.
Whereas the Saints are a game behind Dockers and the Kangaroos, their percentage is pretty higher. Previously in the round, the Hawthorn extended their winning streak to 8 games when they disgraced a flagging Essendon on Friday night by 27.18 (180) to 12.14 (86) at the Etihad Stadium.
