From the papers[]

The Sunday Age[]

"West Coast coach Mick Malthouse noted after the match that the Eagles had not lost two games on end for two years. It seemed a record they were keen to protect right from the start. And the catalysts were everywhere.

The most obvious was in the middle, where Chris Lewis glided through traffic with ease, running and creating chances for his teammates, and reaping in an impressive 29 possessions, even if it meant conceding some space to his opposite number Darren Jarman.

But the Eagles could afford it. They had plenty of others to go around. Equalling Lewis' contribution was Chris Waterman, who ended up with 29 touches also. He was brilliant early, looked a critical loss in the second quarter when cleaned up in a marking contest, but returned a term later with scarcely any less effect.

Then there was those who just got better the longer the game lasted. Peter Matera looked very short of a gallop against Geelong last week. By siren time yesterday, he looked cherry ripe after 29 possessions, two goals and a spirited battle with Hawthorn's Shane Crawford."[1]

Canberra Times[]

"Versatile young star Ashley Mcintosh returned for his first game in 11 weeks and, while he did not dominate at full-forward, he will be a lot better for the outing.

Champion wingman Peter Matera, who has struggled for much of the season with a knee injury, played his best game for weeks, amassing 29 possessions and booting two goals from his wing.

And tough midfielder Chris Lewis, whose form has been up and down this season, was superb in the centre, gathering 29 touches.

The Eagles' defence was also back to its usual miserly self, allowing Hawthorn just eight goals for the game, while youngsters Fraser Gehrig and Brayden Lyle continue to show rapid improvement."[2]
