Western Australia’s AFL derby, Manly beat Wests and more: Australia sportwatch – live!

Good win for the Eagles in the end, their fifth-straight against the Dockers in the W.A. derbies. Fremantle had plenty of opportunities, plenty of the run and patches of high possession, but simply couldn’t find targets inside 50 and turned the ball over far too consistently. The Dockers finished with 57% disposal efficiency as a team, to West Coast’s 70%. Fremantle simply played into the Eagles’ hands, resulting in the high number of intercept marks taken by Eagles defenders, none better than captain Shannon Hurn who had 5 intercept marks and 34 disposals. The only person with more disposals on the ground was his teammate Andrew Gaff, with 35.

No surprises that Shannon Hurn takes away the Ross Glendinning medal - with 3 votes from each of the judges.
