Port dismantle Eagles power

Port Adelaide have rained on the Eagles Good Friday parade knocking them over by 42-points.

The Power booted nine goals to two in the first half exposing West Coast's shortcomings in wet weather to setup the 13.17.95 to 8.5.53 victory. 

Jack Petrucelle was the sole highlight for the home side booting five goals as the three tall forwards Josh Kennedy, Jack Darling and Oscar Allen failed to get their hands on the ball.

The Eagles won the final quarter three goals to one but the damage had been done when the margin reached a game high 57-points during the third term. 

Coach Adam Simpson telling the media post-game they could tell early they didn't have the same intent as Port.

"It was pretty clear that we were facing a very hungry side who outhunted us from the very beginning really," Simpson said.

"Where do I start really in terms of what we need to work on? But a lot of credit to Port Adelaide and the way they went about it."

"We can't lock it in our front half at the moment, because we're not getting enough supply.

"We've just come off winning three-in-a-row, we're 3-2, so we're not in dire straits, but we've got some work to do, obviously."

The Eagles face the Cats down in Geelong next Sunday afternoon.
