Sunny State win for West Coast

The West Coast Eagles have recorded their first win in Queensland and their second win off the season after a convincing 34-point victory over the Sydney Swans on Saturday.

The Eagles lost one of their most influential players early in the game with Luke Shuey going down in the second quarter with a hamstring injury, but it didn’t stop their attacking style of play.
Youngster Oscar Allen was back in the side after a week out and has stamped his place in the game after kicking three goals for the 11.11 (77)  to 6.7 (43) win.

Nic Naitanui also tried for goal but the leather hit his teammate’s face causing only a minor score.

“The young boys they do bring a bit more energy and when we press the game like that, that also helps pressure the game and we really thrive off that,” Dom Sheed told 6PR after the game.

West Coast coach, Adam Simpson, was also impressed by the young Eagles and said Luke Shuey could be out of the game for a couple of weeks with that hamstring injury.
