West Coast Win! 

Picking up three wins from the whole campaign in 2023 doesn’t tell the whole story for West Coast, who remarkably managed to win two games of the campaign. 
Meaning they managed just one more triumph from the remaining 21 AFL fixtures. 
However, they have been battling away at the start of 2024 and their performance against Richmond was just rewards for their recent efforts. 
Wooden spoon waltz 

Throughout the whole of the 2023 AFL campaign, the between North Melbourne and West Coast was nip and tuck for the wooden spoon. 
Eventually, it was West Coast who suffered the ignominy of it, an outcome that had them as the favourites to collect it again in 2024 with many AFL betting sites
With North Melbourne struggling once again this season and Hawthorn finding it tough too, it could be a real battle to climb off the foot of the table in 2024. 
Big games to come 

Whilst West Coast and their fans should absolutely relish the excellent win over Richmond, the famously unforgiving AFL is back to make its presence felt. 
In their next 6 games, West Coast take on the likes of Melbourne, Collingwood and Fremantle and they know they will be under the cosh once again with all AFL betting apps.
