The Western Derby is one of the must watched games of the year.
I got excited at Derby 1, 2017, then Fremantle let me down, again. That’s the problem with the Derby, Fremantle.
When they’re high flying, you get sucked in. They win away from home and you think wow, here they come, the purple whatevers.
Then they come down like a Kmart tent, in a wind storm. The Eagles aren’t much better.
They can be the world’s best and the world’s worst in the same game.
I’d hate to live in Perth just because if you have to follow either of them, you would be continually disappointed.
With the amount of cattle they have and then it all goes to hell and high water.
Lewis Jetta gets the swirling finger going when he kicks a belter from almost halfway, on the sideline and you think here they come, and Jetta then catches the first flight out of Domain and hardly sees it for the rest of the game.
I just want to see more long kicks and less finger twirling, you know what I mean?
Just get back to the basics.
Too much disappointment in this clash, to contemplate a confident tip.
West Coast because they can. Fremantle because they might.
Fremantle at $2.85
West Coast at $1.44
Tip: West Coast at $1.44
Line tip: Fremantle +16.5
