West Coast vs Sydney match preview
Sydney will be without champion Buddy Franklin due to injury, but they still have plenty of goal-scoring options.
The Swans' form has been a little patchy in the last 2 weeks with a loss to the Bulldogs and a tight win over the Kangaroos.
This is a match on paper that Sydney are expected to win. The Eagles will have some confidence though after a breakthrough win at Marvel Stadium last week.
West Coast being back at home this week will give them a boost, but Sydney still look the likely winner.
