Co-captains Lachie Neale (31 and nine clearances) and Harris Andrews (20 and 12 intercepts) were again fantastic, while Jarryd Lyons (29) made the most of his return. Brisbane was in control from early in the match, motoring to 45 unanswered points late in the first quarter before Jack Darling opened the scoring for West Coast with a goal. Hugh McCluggage kicked two lovely set shots – a part of his game he's often struggled with – while Gunston added two in a minute as the home team led by 33 points at the first change.
