From the papers[]

Canberra Times[]

"Hawthorn ruckman Stephen Lawrence was the clearly the most influential big man in the contest and his marking skills in the middle of the ground did enable the Hawks to challenge the Eagles and get within two goals of the league leaders in the third term.

However, West Coast received reliable contributions from its defenders particularly Michael Brennan against Jason Dunstall, and withstood the Hawthorn pressure in attack.

Fellow Hawk forward Brereton instigated his team's early lead and proved a difficult assignment for Eagles teenager Ashley McIntosh.

But with Brereton threatening, West Coast captain presented the flamboyant Hawk with a fearsome shirtfront during the second term that quietened the Victorian representative."[1]
