An inaugural interstate club in the AFL, the Eagles weren't favoured to win the 2018 grand final, despite 92

"There were so many special moments and I think we need to celebrate 82

28 September 2018 11:31 PM 2018 AFL Grand Final preview: Battle of style and resilience at MCG

Add the significant ankle setbacks to Jack Darling in his best season of AFL and prolific midfielder Luke Shuey, plus the Andrew Gaff suspension fiasco in round 20 that briefly rattled the club and its brand, and it seems a miracle the Eagles even made it this far. Long injury lists expose a club's depth and, left with no other option, West Coast went to the well early 67

21 September 2018 5:08 AM West Coast v Melbourne: Eagles coach puts heat on mids

Simpson said statistical trends tended to go out the window during finals. "These games, it’s more than that ... tomorrow is a game on its own," Simpson said. "We beat Collingwood in the contest and there’s no reason we can’t do that tomorrow. “We really rate our midfield. Melbourne are in the same boat. It’ll be a good contest.” "There’s been no extra 80
