Sunday twilight game, how fun!
The Eagles barely have the numbers to field a side so I don't think it's too bold to say this should be an easy win.
Going in unchanged (except Bedford won't be the sub). Hoo roo.

Dees by somewhere between 24 and 108 pts. Bowser to extend his record and no injuries to be had.

The Eagles D50 and F50 setups aren’t horrific on paper (maybe a tad long in the tooth) but the midfield looks similar to the sort of shit we were rolling with in 2013.

Got a feeling we’ll concede the first one or two goals, but steady after that.

We really should be winning by a serious margin, that’s a horrible looking side they’ve put out, and their senior players checked out a while ago.

Dees 80.

I remember when they pumped us by about 100 points when we were at our lowest ebb 9 or so years ago. I’d love the boys to repay the favour. I almost wanted us to lose that day by 100 such was the self pity of supporting a basket case. Glad things have turned around 🙂

I don't see how that midfield will give good enough entries for them to kick any sort of score against May and Lever.

Could be one of those 2.5.17 to 11.13 79 type wins.

Thank god for 6-6-6, otherwise West Coast may have parked their entire side there from the first bounce.

Expect they'll employ a similarly gross game style today to keep the margin from being astronomical.

Dees by 35 in the most boring of slogs.

Fans will be wanting to see a big win on the back of big loses at the hands of WC in the past. Wonder if the playing group will want to be ruthless or just bank the 4 points and get home.

Hoping for a minimum 10 goal win.

Going off our history I dont see us flogging them by 12 goals plus, more a get a lead and put the cue in the rack kind of team, very happy to be proven wrong.

Probably like the GC game last year. Start slowly, blow them away quarters 2 and 3 then cruise to a 60-70pt win that could have been 100+.

Never does to be complacent. I’m going to be wearing my lucky socks wet as penance unless my partner gets out of the laundry fast

Wave them around your head to dry them like you did the poms poms in that gif
