The West Coast Eagles finally ended their losing run as they beat the North Melbourne Kangaroos in an entertaining 72-67 win, but I'm not expecting a repeat.

Head to Head

The Bombers outplayed their opponents in a 96-46 win back in May, with this their fifth victory in the last 10 meetings. 

Essendon Bombers Form 

The Essendon Bombers have struggled for wins of late, with their last three all ending in defeats to the Geelong Cats, Western Bulldogs and Sydney Swans. 

This poor run has seen the Bombers slip down the ladder, although they are still eyeing the top eight finish.

With just one win in their last four home games and five defeats in their last six both at home and away, the Bombers need a turnaround in fortunes.

West Coast Eagles Form  

After months of defeats dating all the way back to their win over the GWS Giants back on March 26, the Eagles have finally won a game again.

Last week, they downed fellow strugglers the North Melbourne Kangaroos in a 72-67 win. 

With 16 defeats coming between these wins, the Eagles have had another tough year.
