Match report: Slow-starting Eagles blow away feisty Bombers

Highlights: West Coast v Essendon The Eagles and Bombers clash in round 15
It was a night of celebrations for West Coast

It was a night of celebrations for West Coast

WEST Coast has delivered a comfortable 78-point win over wooden-spoon favourites Essendon to remain in contention for the top-four.

But on a night when the club celebrated the 10-year anniversary of the 2006 flag, the 2016 Eagles produced a performance that still leaves questions about their own premiership credentials.

Only troubled Brownlow medallist Ben Cousins and premiership defender Brett Jones were absent on the night when the premiership team was honoured pre-game.

Five talking points: West Coast v Essendon

They then watched the current Eagles give up a quarter-time lead to the Bombers before blowing their inexperienced opponents away with a nine-goal-to-two final term, to win 20.10 (130) to 7.10 (52).

"We were off in the first quarter, but I thought Essendon were on," Eagles coach Adam Simpson said post-match.

"It was the clearances mainly for us – I think it was 4-14 at one stage.

"But I thought the intensity was leaning Essendon's way. We worked our way through it, and the second half I was pretty pleased."

Essendon coach John Worsfold was frustrated with the final-term fade out.

"The last quarter was so disappointing," Worsfold said.

"History says with these boys they don't give up, but they had no answer. Couldn't get their hands on the ball and West Coast were playing like they were fresh, hard-running side."

Andrew Gaff worked tirelessly to gather 35 disposals and kick two goals. Luke Shuey had 27 touches and 11 clearances and really came into his own after quarter-time. 

Patrick McGinnity was outstanding on his return to the side with a career-best four goals. He had only once before kicked multiple goals in his seven-year, 91-game career.

"Everyone loves playing with 'Ginna'," Simpson said.

"He's tenacious, in-and-under, and really good for the club and for the players. And he's earned his spot. We needed a bit of grunt in the side and I'm glad he produced. He got rewarded in the end."

Josh Kennedy and Mark Hutchings kicked three goals apiece while Jeremy McGovern was resolute in defence.

West Coast experimented with a new ruck combination of Scott Lycett and Mitch Brown on return from his knee reconstruction, but Matthew Leuenberger and Mark Jamar had the better of them until the Essendon pair were both injured in the third term.

Craig Bird was excellent for the Bombers with 26 disposals and eight tackles, while Zach Merrett had 24 touches, laid 11 tackles and had seven clearances.

Joe Daniher kicked three of the Bombers' seven goals while James Gwilt did a good job down back.

The Bombers were very impressive in the opening term. They smashed the Eagles in the clearances 15-9 and the centre clearances 5-1 to set up a three-point lead at quarter-time.

Leuenberger dominated the ruck with support from Brendon Goddard as an effective third-man-up. Bird and the two Merretts, Zach and Jackson, were all busy at the coalface.

But coach John Worsfold lamented his midfielders being passive at the stoppages in the second term and the Bombers also let themselves down with their ball use at times.

Compounding Essendon’s loss was the injury and report of Jamar. He was booked for striking Jeremy McGovern with a right elbow in the third term and will have a nervous wait this week. He also suffered a hamstring injury shortly after. 



David Zaharakis had a frustrating night as he was well held by Hutchings and Jackson Nelson. He also may face scrutiny for punching Nelson in the stomach in the second term.

"I asked the players if they felt better after those incidents and giving a free kick away against their teammates and you can imagine the response I got," Worsfold said.

"We got beaten in that area of discipline and mental toughness and that's disappointing as well."

The Eagles were slow to get going and would be frustrated by their performance in the midfield in the opening quarter, but they controlled the ball well thereafter and finished strongly in typical fashion.

MEDICAL ROOM
West Coast: The Eagles appeared to escape injury free. 
Essendon: Jamar came off shortly after he was reported in the third term and had ice applied immediately to his left hamstring. He took no further part in the match and Worsfold expected him to miss next week at least. Matthew Leuenberger had his left knee assessed in the third term and Worsfold was concerned post-match. "Leuenberger, at this stage, looks unlikely that he'll be right next week, but who knows. We'll hope for the best," he said. 

NEXT UP
West Coast host North Melbourne on Sunday week at Domain Stadium in a game that will help shape the top eight. The Bombers face St Kilda at Etihad Stadium on the same day.
