A last-minute goal to Brisbane skipper Jonathan Brown consigned West Coast to their first-ever wooden spoon. West Coast had earlier re-taken control of the match in the final term after a big second quarter by the Lions had seen them go into halftime with a comfortable lead. The Eagles held a slender lead with time ticking down before Brown outbodied namesake Mitch Brown to mark and converted the kick to take the points for Brisbane. Scott Selwood had 28 possessions and 8 tackles and Andrew Strijk had 20 and a goal.

From the papers[]

The Age[]

"As has been common during the year for West Coast, it struggled to clear the ball from defence while its run was nowhere to be seen in a sluggish first half. There was also a lack of desperation, but a passage of play from premiership defender Brett Jones showed what fruits were available with a bit of courage and determination.

Lions speedster Todd Banfield was first to a ball against two Eagles players, before Jones took matters into his own hands and dived on the ball, picked it up and sauntered down the centre wing. Matt Rosa took possession soon after and a measured kick found late-inclusion Koby Stevens, who capped off the terrific move with his first AFL goal.

Staying cool and calm was needed for West Coast late, but those qualities disappeared when needed."
