West Coast and Fremantle always put on a ripper of a show that entertains their fans through-out Australia, New Zealand and those world-wide, with this year’s edition promising more of the same, and you can enjoy the action using a standard or HD TV, as well as live streaming options with a Free trial.
AFL Round 6 Preview
The sixth round of this year’s AFL Premiership includes the newest edition of the Western Derby between the Eagles and Dockers, as well as a host of other fascinating contests including a top of the Ladder clash when the Adelaide Crows host the Richmond Tigers at the Oval on late Sunday afternoon. The Crows are unbeaten in their five starts, having been the dominant team in this early part of the calendar, while the Tigers are likewise unbeaten and bested Adelaide in the pre-season. However, that match didn’t count for points and was held at Etihad Stadium, so the Tigers will need their best effort of the season if they are to continue their impressive run, but don’t look for every game in this round of the AFL on Free to Air TV.
2017 Western Derby
The 2017 edition of West Coast vs Fremantle does promise to be an intriguing one, as it very well could determine which side has a successful remainder of the season. West Coast are in a good position but coming off a last round loss, with the Eagles clearly outclassed by Hawthorn. On the flip side, the Dockers have won their last three matches and are sitting just outside the top eight. So while both teams sport identical records, the Eagles will be counting on home field advantage.
