From the papersEdit
"Rance, who played the first 14 games of the year, was cast aside after the Eagles' 26-point loss to Collingwood in round 14, but has now seemingly guaranteed himself a spot for the finals.
His gritty comeback to bolster the Eagles' backline was perhaps the only positive aspect - the four critical premiership points aside - to come out of the Eagles' eight-hour journey on Saturday via Adelaide and Sydney.
The 7286 spectactors at the game had to endure a blustery wind, an inept performance from the home team and some of the most difficult-to-follow umpiring of the year.
Certainly, there was nothing to inspire West Coast confidence with the finals two weeks away."
