West Coast v Melbourne
Saturday 7:40pm at Domain Stadium
With both West Coast and Melbourne 7-5 and just inside the Top 8, this match seems critical to both team’s finals hopes.
West Coast are seventh on the ladder with a 7-5 record. The Eagles rank 11th in attack and seventh in scoring so their position on the ladder is fair. They dropped three on end before a big home win over Geelong. West Coast are 5-1 at Subiaco this season. The Eagles have not posted 100 points since Round 6.
Melbourne have been in hot form with three straight wins that have moved them up to fifth on the premiership ladder. The Demons actually rank fourth in attack while they are ninth in defence. Melbourne have posted 100-plus in six of their last nine matches. The Demons have won both interstate games this year.

What To Expect
West Coast have long dominated Melbourne and with their outstanding record at Subiaco it is hard to imagine them not getting the money again. Melbourne have been in great form, capped by a total decimation of the premiers last Sunday, but they have to prove themselves against West Coast before they can be considered.
