A pretty good summary of our 2017 season ~ Josh Kennedy
Retiring West Coast ruck-forward Drew Petrie is keen to remain at the Eagles in an off-field role next year. Petrie bowed out of his on-field career in disappointing fashion at the weekend after playing 332 games and booting 444 goals. Speaking to The West Australian following the Eagles’ semi-final loss to the Giants, Petrie said he felt “reinvigorated” following his move to Western Australia. He also indicated that his family intended to stay in Perth for the near future.
Drew Petrie, Sam Mitchell & Matt Priddis
Massive thank you to these three champions for their contributions to our great club And huge respect to the Giants boys for the guard of honour
GOALS: LeCras 2, Mitchell 2, Vardy, Kennedy, Shuey, Petrie, Darling Official crowd: 14,865 at Spotless Stadium
The Eagles looked totally spent and were outplayed from the start. Sam Mitchell (28 touches & two goals) and Matt Priddis (30) tried hard in their final games, while Drew Petrie kicked a goal in the last game of his career. Jeremy McGovern and Barrass took three intercept marks each in the first term, but once the Giants stopped bombing the ball long, they had success.
