West Coast Eagles vs Adelaide Crows Tips


The last fixture in Round 9 sees West Coast host Adelaide from Optus Stadium in Perth.

The Eagles bounced back from a heavy defeat to Geelong, winning their last two. The Crows are looking to break a four-game losing streak.

At home and with a few key inclusions, it's hard to see West Coast dropping what could be a percentage boosting victory.

  • West Coast Eagles are undefeated in four games at Optus Stadium with an average winning margin of 37 points
  • West Coast Eagles have won the last 3 matches against Adelaide Crows.
  • Adelaide Crows have lost their last 4 matches.

Head to Head


From their last 10 clashes, it is 7-3 in favour of West Coast Eagles.

West Coast defeated Adelaide by 33 points in Round 6 last year, which was the last time these two sides met. It was a third straight win for the Eagles.

West Coast Eagles Form


With injuries to key midfielders Elliot Yeo and Luke Shuey along with having mercurial forward Liam Ryan still unavailable, the Eagles are doing enough at present by banking the games they should be.

Following a huge loss in Geelong, they overwhelmed the Fremantle Dockers late in the Western Derby before recording a 38-point win over Hawthorn last Sunday.

Looking to stay in touch with the top four and facing an out of form Crows on their home deck, they will be searching for a big win this Sunday.

West Coast Eagles Team News


It's good news for the Eagles with their two star key defenders in Jeremy McGovern and Tom Barrass both likely to available for Round 9.

Despite a precautionary measure taken with big forward Josh Kennedy when subbed out last week with calf tightness, West Coast remain hopeful that he'll be ready to face the Crows.

West Coast Eagles Team List


The West Coast Eagles team list is yet to be released.

Adelaide Crows Form


Although they have been much more comptitive this season, the last two rounds suggest Adelaide may be starting to feel the pinch with what is still mostly a developing list.

They simply just haven't been able to kick a score of late, managing just four goals against the Giants in Round 7. In last week's Showdown, they kicked just the five majors against Port Adelaide.

With their main key forward in Taylor Walker missing this Round 9, it doesn't make it any easier in attack for the Crows, especially with those important additions down back for the Eagles.


Adelaide Crows Team News


Along with Taylor Walker being rested, the Crows will be without Lachie Murphy (ankle) and Ned McHenry (concussion) for Sunday's clash against the Eagles.

Ronin O’Connor is set to debut this Sunday, a big-bodied midfielder who was drafted from Western Australia. 

Chayce Jones, Jackson Hately and Shane McAdam are all in the mix for a return.

Adelaide Team List


The Adelaide Crows team list is yet to be released.
