Wet and wild weather set the scene for the WAFL on Saturday afternoon, which eventually saw the Eagles fall to East Perth 12.13 (85) to 3.10 (28).

“Unfortunately we didn’t get the job done but there were some pleasing signs, in regards to the connection between our WAFL-listed players and AFL-listed players,” senior coach Daniel Pratt said.

Find out how the AFL-listed players fared below:

Elliot Yeo

13 disposals, eight tackles, three inside 50s

Yeoy was as we expected, we thought he was going to be a little bit rusty early, but as the game wore on, his class really started to stand out. Probably his last 15 – 20 minutes were a level above WAFL standard.

Mark Hutchings

28 disposals, four marks, two inside 50s

We’re really pleased with the return of Hutch, he’s an experienced campaigner, so there’s no surprise in his performance, but his influence around the contest at times was really good for us.

Zac Langdon

11 disposals, three marks, one goal

Had an almost game, was getting in some really good positions to impact in slippery conditions. Finished with a pretty nice contested mark and goal in the third quarter. He’ll continue to connect with our guys and continue to learn our game style over the rest of the season and hopefully play AFL again soon.

Nathan Vardy

19 hit outs, two marks, one goal

Vards had a quiet day statistically, but with losing a couple of talls over the last few weeks, he competed long down the line plays and broke even in the ruck.

Ben Johnson

19 disposals, four marks, two inside 50s

Had some really good moments, still stuff to keep working on with his game.

Brayden Ainsworth

16 disposals, one tackle, two inside 50s

We played him in a few different roles this week, and we were pleased with how he handled those. Continuing to grow in those areas.

Luke Foley

13 disposals, five marks, three tackles

Foley also played a few different, roles, played up in the midfield for a bit and also down back, we thought he competed really well.

Callum Jamieson

10 hit outs, two marks, one goal

Continues to grow as a forward and as a ruck. His competitive instinct and nature is something that we’re really pleased with and feel like that’s something we can continue to work with. 

Zane Trew and Luke Edwards

Trew: 15 disposals, three tackles, four kicks; Edwards: 15 disposals, three marks and two tackles

We thought they competed really hard through the midfield against a hardened East Perth midfield, had some really good moments and they both showed that they’re going to be classy players for us in the future.

Xavier O’Neill

12 disposals, two marks, three tackles

Was a bit up and down, had a knock to his leg, we finished him forward, but his last month of footy has been really good for us.

Jarrod Cameron


Unfortunately Jarrod Cameron sustained a lower leg injury early in the second quarter, and wasn’t able to come back on.
