From the papers[]

The Age[]

"Inaccurate kicking restricted the winning margin as the Eagles made light of the absence of their number one goal-scorer, full-forward Peter Sumich, and overran Carlton's defence.

The only Blues winner in the backline was centre half-back Michael Sexton, who saw promising rookie Brett Spinks off the field.

Carlton's day began disastrously when it lost Brett Ratten eight minutes into the game. He was on crutches after the match with a strained medial ligament.

His job of minding damaging Eagles half-forward Brett Heady fell to Tony Lynn. Heady was one of the Eagles' main weapons up forward and his three goals could easily have been six."[1]

Canberra Times[]

"For the second week in a row, wingman Chris Mainwaring was the Eagles' leading contributor.

Mainwaring, who had 21 kicks for the match, was the instigator of West Coast's brilliant first half, in which they booted 10 goals to the Blues' four and successfully shadowed dangerous Carlton players Craig Bradley, Stephen Kernahan and Stephen Oliver.

Lewis and Heady also lifted their influence with added goal-kicking responsibilities.

And when Hynes kicked two and Lewis booted three goals in the time-on period of the second term, the Eagles had established a match winning 44-point lead at half-time."[2]
