West Coast Eagles vs Geelong Cats Preview
The Tim Kelly Cup at Optus Stadium this Saturday should be a beauty!
West Coast is starting to look scary.
Trailing by 14 points at quarter time, the Eagles implemented this radical attacking style of play with a focus on scoring goals.
Josh Kennedy booted seven of them.
Nic Nat dominated over Brodie Grundy.
Tim Kelly easily played his best game since crossing over to the Eagles.
Much interest will surround how he fares against his old side.
Geelong got the job done in trying conditions on Monday night over Freo but are very much at midstrength.
The debut of Cam Close was a highlight, Tom Hawkins booted three with the likes of Cam Guthrie and Mitch Duncan amongst Geelong’s best.
With a nice long streak at home and plenty of confidence back in the team, the West Coast Eagles should be able to stamp their authority against the Cats this Saturday night.
