From the papers[]

The Sunday Age[]

"West Coast's dominance started in the centre of the ground where ruckmen Paul Harding and Ryan Turnbull outmuscled Greg Dear, who seemed lethargic after being knocked out against the Bears.

The Eagles' on-ballers, notably Dean Kemp and Don Pyke took advantage, to the point where the players they had been minding (a rotating cast that included Matthew Knights, Tony Free, Chris Naish and Campbell) ended up chasing them.

But the day's bonus for Malthouse was the good form of young forward Shane Bond. With Bond's emergence and the improvement of centre half-forward Brett Spinks (quiet yesterday), there are two new dimensions to the forward line."[1]

Canberra Times[]

"Apart from Jakovich and Bond, the Eagles were well served by Peter Matera, Ashley Mcintosh and Dean Kemp, arid Peter Sumich kicked five goals and Brett Heady three.

Paul Broderick was easily the best for Richmond with captain Tony Free and Matthew Knights turning in respectable efforts.

But the failure to get the ball past the ever-present Jakovich kept the league's leading goal kicker after two rounds, Matthew Richardson, down to a solitary goal."[2]
