West Coast won their first-up match before losing a quarter-final to drop out of the Wizard Cup. The club won one of their remaining two trial games.

Rules[]

The league experimented with a number of new rules during the Wizard Cup. Goals kicked from outside 50 were worth nine points. Deliberately rushed behinds were worth three points. Any ball hitting the goal or behind posts and remaining in the field of play was play on.

Kicks backwards outside of the attacking 50 metre arc were called play-on. The boundary umpire moved 10 metres inside the boundary line to throw the ball back in. A 10-metre outer circle was added to the centre circle to restrict ruckmen's run-ups at centre bounces.
