West Coast eagles will welcome the return of 12 experienced players this week including the long awaited returned of Eric Mackenzie. West Coast backline was decimated with injuries including Mackenzie who missed the whole of the 2015 season after tearing his anterior cruciate ligament in a practice match against Carlton.
We will also see many DFS relevant guys have their first hit out of the NAB cup including some big names in Gaff, Priddis, Niknat, Hurn and Kennedy.
Gold Coast will take in a very inexperienced side this week and although we expect a belting it is still worth keeping an eye on some of their youngsters. Jesse Lonergan racked up a team-high 23 disposals in his first hitout and Darcy MacPherson showed a lot of promise.
