From the papers[]

The Age[]

"Vice-captain Tony McGuinness was his usual creative self for the Crows, but his teammates clearly struggled to play out four quarters in near 30-degree heat.

The Eagles also had the better of the ruck duel, with Ryan Turnbull, playing only his 13th game, beating Shaun Rehn and David Pittman after regular Eagles ruckman Paul Harding limped off with a hip injury in the third term.

Lewis and Turnbull scored vital goals in the final term, and Adelaide coach Graham Cornes could only watch as his side squandered the lead."[1]

Canberra Times[]

"The Crows seemed poised to record their first AFL win in Perth after midfielders Mark Bickley and Tony McGuinness gave Adelaide a strong advantage going into the final term.

But Heady returned to the brilliant form that was the feature of his debut year in 1990, kicking four goals in 14 minutes in a lively performance on the half-forward line.

Heady was suffering from a virus and diarrhoea and kept the illness a secret from the Eagles medical staff, much to the Malthouse's despair."[2]
