West Coast were upset at Subiaco by a struggling St Kilda side that lifted for Robert Harvey's 350th game. The Saints led by as much as 44 points in the third quarter before a Daniel Kerr-led fightback wound the margin back to just 4 points, but St Kilda steadied to run out comfortable winners. Kerr and Michael Braun stood up in the midfield in the absence of Chris Judd, who was a late withdrawal with a groin issue, but had too few helpers.

From the papers[]

The West Australian[]

"Cox, Kerr and Hurn were instrumental in West Coast's revival in the second half, with Kerr redeeming himself for a poor first half against Luke Ball.

Hurn was given midfield responsibility in the momentum swinging third term, barging through packs and finding the space to unload his trademark bombs.

Cox was steady in the first half but especially dominant later, on the ball and up forward where Quentin Lynch was moved out to operate across half-forward.

Lynch kicked only two goals but had a strong appetite for the football in the second half while David Wirrpanda, also under the gun after a poor month of footy, found some touch and run to push the Eagles close to an improbable victory.

West Coast searched frantically for the killer blow but, with both teams physically and mentally drained, couldn't produce it."[1]
