West Coast honoured departed coach Adam Simpson with a spirited but ultimately unsuccessful battle with the Lions. Under caretaker coach Jarrad Schofield, the Eagles trailed for most of the day but never let Brisbane get too far ahead, showing much-improved intensity and ball movement despite tricky damp conditions to eventually go down by 13 points. Tim Kelly had a game-high 29 possessions and a goal, while Liam Ryan celebrated his 100th game with two goals from 21 touches.

Round 15 (13 July)

West Coast's reserves finished on top of an arm-wrestle with West Perth at Lathlain to record their fourth win of 2024. In a see-sawing contest, the Falcons burst out of the blocks with the first five goals but the home side kicked the next five. The Eagles had a handy lead just before three-quarter time but a West Perth rally saw them push in front in the last quarter, before goals to Coby Burgiel and Jack Darling sealed the win. Archer Reid finished with three goals in a promising outing while Jai Culley had 21 possessions and two goals.
