Lost by 65
GWS 16.12.108 - 5.13.43 WCE

West Coast remained entrenched at the bottom of the ladder, humbled by the Giants in their first home game of 2024. Once again the Eagles went multiple periods without kicking a major, unable to find a goal in either the second or third quarters as the ladder-leading GWS ground away, before a brief flurry to start the final term temporarily got the scoreboard moving. Elliot Yeo was his side's best with 27 disposals, eight tackles and a goal.
