A spirited West Coast Eagles have lost their opening clash of the season to the Sydney Swans, going down 13.8.60 to 18.7.115.

The difference?  A bloke named Buddy Franklin. The superstar booted 8.1 on his way to 21 disposals, 9 marks and 4 tackles.

The Sydney midfield worked tirelessly as Luke Parker amassed 32 possessions and 9 tackles. Despite the loss the Eagles had some shining lights in a solid from Liam Ryan (12 disposals and a goal) & the successful return of ruckman Nic Naitanui.

There were some exciting moments throughout the game, hear how it played out.

He may have already kicked the goal of the season, Luke Parker spoke with us about his “Karate Kid” style kick.

The Eagles skipper wasn’t too happy with letting Buddy kick his eight goals.
