West Coast to play Sydney in finals series
West Coast will host the Sydney Swans in the finals series, with the two teams vying for the Western Bulldogs’ first premiership since 2005.
The Eagles will face a tough schedule from the start as they play seven games in the month of November and the Bulldogs will be coming off their bye, with their bye week starting on Thursday.
The Swans will be playing six games in that period, while the Dogs will play four.
Both teams will be on the back foot, however, and will be desperate for a win, while there’s a decent chance of a win at this stage.
If the Swans win their final game, it would be their first since they knocked the Cats out of the finals in 2015.
If they win that game, they will finish their series against the Cats on home ground.
If Sydney wins, the Eagles will finish off their series in Perth with a home-and-away clash against the Roos.
West Coast will play Sydney at Adelaide Oval on November 20.AAP
