On a slippery Launceston surface, West Coast fought hard to remain in touch with the reigning premiers throughout the match, taking the lead early in the final quarter before the Hawks kicked five of the last six goals to take the points. Dean Cox was massive as usual with 30 possessions and 31 hitouts, Darren Glass did a useful job on the dangerous Lance Franklin, and Adam Selwood had a solid 100th game.

From the papers[]

The West Australian[]

"With rain falling from the start of the match and a bitter wind adding to the wintry woes for the players, goals were always golden and the first did not come until Franklin found range after 11 minutes in the first term.

Even though Hawthorn dominated possession and effectiveness by a clear margin and had the edge at the stoppages, West Coast fought back for a two-point lead at the first break.

In a game where the lead changed six times and the lead was never more than 19 points, the ability to take chances loomed as an early mesure of the eventual victor and it was the Hawks who did it better.

Ben McKinley made the most of few opportunities to boot three goals, even stealing one from LeCras with a tap through on the line. It left LeCras with just two behinds, while Dean Cox and Adam Hunter took a little shine off their polish by kicking five behinds."[1]
