WEST COAST has had a win over its local rivals on Grand Final day with athletic defender Josh Rotham taking out the Colgate AFL Grand Final Sprint.
It was a West Coast whitewash of the podium places with the Eagles’ zippy forward Jack Petruccelle and high-flying Liam Ryan next across the finish line in the 100m race at Optus Stadium.
