West Coast coach Adam Simpson says he expects the ruck battle will be a physical affair in Saturday's AFL clash with GWS at Spotless Stadium.

Eagles big man Nic Naitanui will go up against the Giants' Shane Mumford in what's shaping as an intriguing duel, with Simpson saying their battle will have a huge bearing on the result.

West Coast need to win to keep their top-four hopes alive, while GWS are in the hunt for a top-two berth.
