Power buzzing to take down Eagles

The West Coast Eagles have suffered their biggest loss of the season after going down by 48-points to the undefeated Port Adelaide at Metricon Stadium on Saturday.

Jeremy McGovern was a late withdrawal with the defender unable to recover from his ankle injury, Will Schofield was named in the playing side and missed the mark, unable to lay tackles and reported for headbutting.

The backline struggled to but a hold on to Charlie Dixon who kicked six goals for the Power, while Josh Kennedy played his best game of the year kicking four goals for the Eagles; Port Adelaide 13.11 (89) to West Coast 6.5 (41).

“I thought Charlie Dixon played a great game. We didn’t work well together as probably a back seven,” Brad Sheppard told 6PR.
“The way we’re playing at the moment, everyone’s down a bit of confidence, so we’ve got to find the energy.”

“Don’t for one second think it’s got anything to do about being in a hub; it’s the way we’re playing, it’s consistency, it’s second halves, predictability, undisciplined play,” West Coast coach Adam Simpson said after the loss.
