Eagles back on track

The Eagles are back on the winners list after three straight losses defeating GWS by 11-points.

In the absence of key forwards including Jack Darling, Josh Kennedy & Mark LeCras the Eagles shared the goal kicking around to achieve the 13.8.86 to 11.9.75 win. 

Willie Rioli, Mark Hutchings, Jamie Cripps, Andrew Gaff and Jeremy McGovern all booted two goals each. 

Eagles coach Adam Simpson said the match would have been a great spectacle to watch. 

Both teams had a real go. Momentum shifted throughout the game, a real arm wrestle and to get over the line we're really proud of our players," Simpson said.

"We just hung in there and we, sometimes, couldn't keep up with our own ball movement, which exposed us the other way, and I think the Giants had the same issues at stages, so it would've been a bit of a 'ping pongy' game there."

The Eagles remain third on the AFL ladder, equal second on percentage. 

West Coast face Collingwood at the MCG next Sunday afternoon.
