Shock loss for the West Coast Eagles to the Gold Coast Suns

It was a dominant display by the Gold Coast Suns against the West Coast Eagles in some slippery conditions at Metricon Stadium.

It was an arm wrestle between the two sides up until half -time when the Suns kicked away running out winners – snapping a 19-game losing streak.

Suns Matt Rowell, in just his second game of AFL football, was best on ground with a performance that defied his age and experience.



The final score in the round two clash between the Suns and Eagles.


Former West Coast Captain Shannon Hurn says the team didn’t make the move east as well as what they would have hoped, given they seemed reactive and second to the ball especially in the second half.
