Eagles GPS data further exposes poor Suns outing
Eagles coach Adam Simpson says his sides GPS numbers were better in the intra-club hit-out the previous week than what was served up against the Gold Coast on Saturday.
West Coast's senior players have been firmly looked at ahead of the clash against Brisbane at the Gabba.
“Looking at our GPS data, we ran harder in the intra-club the week before,” Simpson told 7NEWS.
“I think it’s there still on our players, for whatever reason they didn’t perform on the weekend.
“Gold Coast were really good, the way they competed and really attacked the contest, it was pretty impressive and we couldn’t match it so we’ve got a week to turn it around.”
The Eagles will also take Jeremy McGovern's striking charge to the AFL tribunal on Tuesday night.
“In consultation with our legal team and talking to ‘Gov’, we thought it was it was worth taking on and we’ve got a pretty good case,” Simpson said.
