West Coast’s WAFL team will unleash another debutant for season 2019 when Chaz Flint lines up against Peel Thunder at David Grays Arena on Saturday.
The 24-year-old University Football Club product will make his first appearance in blue and gold during a critical contest against Fremantle’s WAFL affiliated side.
A third-straight win could propel the Eagles into finals contention with just eight rounds remaining in the home and away season.
West Coast currently sits one game and percentage outside the top five.
It’s been an up-and-down season for Peel, who are fifth on the ladder with a 5-6 record and a percentage of 106.8 per cent.
West Coast got the chocolates the last time the two sides met in round two, running out 27-point victors at Optus Stadium.
Jake Waterman was best on ground with five goals that day and will no doubt be a key focus for the Thunder defence come Saturday.
A win on Saturday would bring the Eagles level with the Thunder on five wins and would set up for an enthralling final two months of the season.
Bouncedown is at 12.10pm at David Grays Arena on Saturday.
