The game will be played as the curtain raiser for the West Coast-Geelong AFL clash later in the afternoon with the Eagles hunting their first WAFL win of the season and the Lions to string consecutive wins together for the second time in 2022.

The other four matches all bounce down at 2.10pm on Saturday afternoon with the WACA Ground hosting another top of the table battle with East Fremantle playing Claremont.

Both teams come into the contest with 6-2 records after wins last weekend so the winner could sit in top spot by the end of Round 9 depending on what West Perth does.

Speaking of the Falcons, they will be at home at Joondalup's Pentanet Stadium hosting a Swan Districts team on their own three-game losing streak to be in fifth position coming into the contest.
