The Eagles have suffered a heavy defeat to Fremantle as the Dockers claimed a 97 point victory at Mineral Resources Park on Friday night.
The final margin was 22.9 (141) to 6.8 (44).
While the result was inconsequential, the way the Dockers controlled long periods of the game was confirmation of what has looked an impressive pre-season for Justin Longmuir's team.
Unfortunately, injury hit again for West Coast, with the club's prized draftee and two of its midfield stars suffering lower leg injuries.
Campbell Chesser and Dom Sheed both limped from the ground in the opening quarter and had ice applied to their left ankles, while gun midfielder Elliot Yeo injured his right ankle in the second term.
The injuries reduced the Eagles to 24 available players on their list less than a month from round one as they battle a lengthy injury ward and the continued absence of Jack Darling.
The Dockers built their game from defence, with the speed of recruit Jordan Clark and the precision of young rebounder Hayden Young standout features in a back six that restricted West Coast to six goals.
They were equally quick at the other end of the ground, with Michael Frederick a standout after booting four of his five goals in the first half. Travis Colyer and Bailey Banfield booted three each.
Star midfielder Andrew Brayshaw was the standout in a midfield that was missing captain Nat Fyfe and veteran David Mundy, who was withdrawn on the day.
Premiership forward Willie Rioli played half a game and produced some moments of skill, snapping an excellent goal in his first game since the 2019 elimination final against Essendon.
The Eagles would have been pleased with the contribution of WAFL forward Hugh Dixon as he pushes for selection in the NAB AFL Pre-Season Rookie Draft, with fellow hopeful Tyler Keitel limited to less than a quarter.
