West Coast got out to an early lead but thereafter allowed Collingwood to take control of the match and cruise to victory, with the 32-point margin not reflecting the Magpies' dominance. Dean Kemp was one Eagle to stand up with 29 disposals and nine marks.

From the papersEdit
"West Coast kicked with a strong breeze in the first term and led by 10 points , at the break. Within three minutes of the start of the second term it extended the lead by another goal, but from then Collingwood fired and had added 9.6 points before the Eagles scored their next goal, just before the time-on period in the third term.
The Magpies played intelligently with the wind and halted Eagles' attacks when kicking against the breeze with short play along the flanks."
