West Coast Eagles host Hawthorn at Optus Stadium in Perth on Sunday with rain expected to prevent free-flowing footy.

West Coast found their top gear eventually last week after a slow first half against Carlton and they'll be looking to solidify their top four claims. They face an ageing Hawthorn list that have been struggling to consistently kick a competitve score in 2020.

West Coast Eagles Form

West Coast were slow to that their season but are in good form at present and they currently sit in 4th position on the ladder.

They were a little sluggish early last week against Carlton but got stronger as the second half wore on. In the end, they were able to record a rather safe 22-point win.

West Coast Eagles vs Hawthorn Match Up

Although they upset the Eagles at Optus Stadium last year, it will take some extra magic from the Alastair Clarkson-coached Hawks to repeat the dose on Sunday.

On paper the Hawks still look to have enough fire power up front with Jack Gunston, Luke Breust and Chad Wingard all highly skillful mid-sized forwards but without a strong and consistent key forward for them to build around, they aren't as effective especially with a one-paced and predictable midfield delivering it in.

West Coast have all areas covered across the field with arguably the most talented list in the AFL and it's hard to see where the Hawks can find an edge on Sunday. However, the Eagles haven't exactly been putting consistent four quarter efforts together and have been relying on that ability to just do enough.

On their home turf and facing a Hawthorn side that is struggling to kick a winning score, we're expecting West Coast to be far too strong for Hawthorn in Round 12.
