The Dockers are looking to keep a faint top eight hope alive, while victory for West Coast would take them one step closer to securing a finals berth in 2021.

West Coast have key inclusions and are clearly the better team on paper for this must win clash, so the -14.5 line is where we'll be playing this Sunday.

  • West Coast Eagles have won their last 11 matches against Fremantle Dockers
  • West Coast Eagles rank first in marks per game in the AFL this season
  • Fremantle Dockers rank last in kicks per game and are 17th in disposals per game in the AFL this season


Head to Head


West Coast have defeated Fremantle in the last 11 Western Derbies by an average winning margin of 39 points. The Dockers' last victory over the Eagles came all the way back in Round 3 of the 2015 season.

West Coast defeated Fremantle by 59 points in Round 7 this season, which was the last game between these two sides.

Fremantle Dockers Form


With a young and promising squad, the Dockers aren't far off taking over the mantle of the best team in the west, but they'll still likely need to wait another season or two.

After two heavy defeats, they scrambled home in an ugly encounter against Richmond Tigers, a form line which certainly isn't strong now.

Fremantle started to show end of season fatigue last week against Brisbane in a 64-point defeat, and that is understandable considering their long injury list.

This would be big result if they were to topple the Eagles, but we suspect the Dockers are still 12 months away from contending for finals.

Andrew Brayshaw is suspended and Nathan Wilson is injured. The replacements are Sam Switkowski, Tobe Watson and Bailey Banfield.

West Coast Eagles Form


With key defender Tom Barrass, star midfielder Luke Shuey and mercurial Liam Ryan back in the 22, there's no excuses for West Coast in Sunday's Derby.

Despite having one of the more talented lists in the competition, the Eagles have been disappointing in 2021, suffering some heavy defeats throughout the season where they have mixed their form.

A proud club with a very experienced line up, not all hope is lost for West Coast who showed good signs against Melbourne last Monday, but just couldn't string it together for four quarters.

If they are to be any threat in September, then the Eagles simply need to make a statement against the Dockers and get some confidence ahead of another finals tilt.

Tom Barrass, Luke Shuey, Liam Ryan and Luke Foley are all big ins. The Eagles do lose Shannon Hurn to injury though.

West Coast need to record a big win over a tired and depleted Dockers on Sunday if they're to be any threat in September, so the -14.5 can be covered, especially given their recent history against Fremantle.
