From the papers[edit | edit source]

The Age[edit | edit source]

"The Eagles were nervous and hesitant with their disposal early, while the Magpies got great drive from Paul Licuria, opposed to Ben Cousins, and Tyson Lane on a wing.

Mel (sic) Michael lined up in attack and was a clear winner early over Andrew Donnelly, while Rocca was proving a handful for Ashley McIntosh.

But then Collingwood's avenues to goal dried up as the miserly West Coast defence led by Glen Jakovich and Guy McKenna tightened up.

With Cousins (26 possessions), Chad Rintoul (31) and Peter Matera (27) all doing well in the midfield, Cummings and Phil Matera (four goals) got plenty of chances and made the Magpies pay."[1]
