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.
