From the papersEdit

Canberra TimesEdit

"After holding a 17-point lead at the last change the Eagles booted five goals to two in the final term to take the match 15.13 (103) to 9.14 (68).

Richmond put up a gallant effort for the first three quarters and got within 11 points late in the third term.

But the West Coast Eagles settled down, and with Peter Sumich firing in three of his six majors in the final term, managed to win their fourth consecutive game and their second in Melbourne for the season."[1]
