From the papers[]

The West Australian[]

"Collingwood coach Mick Malthouse punted on the elusive skills of Davis against the attacking work of Wirrpanda in the third quarter, with the electrifying Pie kicking three goals of his side's seven for the term.

With West Coast's last defeat by a traveling team coming in round 19, 2002, when Melbourne won, the Magpies rally was not in the script.

The scores were tied when Scott Burns snapped his team's 14th goal midway through the final term before judd and his co-midfielders found the energy and space to kick away.

Significantly, though, Hansen and Lynch were heavily involved in the desperate final five minutes that sealed the game for the Eagles."[1]

The Age[]

"Inspired by a magnificent solo performance in the ruck by Josh Fraser and sustained at ground level by Ben Johnson, the Magpies pushed the Eagles all the way before succumbing 16.16 (112) to 15.8 (98).

It took the man most likely to beat them, Chris Judd, and one of the men least likely to beat them, Quinten Lynch, to secure the premiership points for the Eagles.

Judd gave another display of midfield brilliance, his third on the ground in as many weeks, while Lynch kicked five goals, equalling his career best.

He had kicked just five goals in six games before last night, and his opponent, Simon Prestigiacomo, had conceded only seven in five games.

That all changed."[2]
