After their premiership defence fizzled out in 1993, West Coast started strongly in 1994 and a couple of months into the season had taken top spot, where they remained for most of the year. After beating Footscray in the final round to win the minor premiership for the first time since 1991, the Eagles squeaked past Collingwood in the opening round of the finals to earn a week off. Melbourne proved no match in the prelim, and West Coast scheduled another date with Geelong on the final day of the season. This time they made short work of the Cats, winning by 80 points to win the club's second flag.

Defender Glen Jakovich won a second Club Champion award, a year after tying with Don Pyke, and was also named in the All-Australian side for the first time. He was joined by Guy McKenna and Peter Matera, both of whom were in the side for the third time, and David Hart following a career-best year by the back pocket. Small forward Shane Bond was named the club's best rookie after a successful debut season in which he won a premiership medal, and Drew Banfield and Brett Spinks were other youngsters to impress.
