West Coast Eagles

West Coast EaglesThe West Coast Eagles became the first Western Australian team to join the AFL in 1987 and quickly established themselves as a successful side. In 1992 they became the first non-Victorian team in history to win the premiership, and have since won two more.

West Coast won six of their first eight games, but were very patchy from that point onward and looked destined to miss finals. A shock loss by Melbourne in the last week allowed the Eagles to sneak into September, but they were found out in the semi finals after being crushed by the Giants.

With several high-profile retirements at the end of the season, including Brownlow medallist Matt Priddis, the Eagles are a popular pick to slide out of the top eight in 2018 – potentially all the way to the bottom four.
