Eagles smash Suns at Optus Stadium, continue to make Robert Walls eat his words

Nic Naitanui has continued his brilliant comeback to footy.Not even a month has passed since Robert Walls predicted West Coast would finish last in 2018.

If he picks up the newspaper tomorrow morning and tips the ladder upside down, he’ll find his prediction is tracking well.

The Eagles will face far sterner tests than a travel-weary Gold Coast at the back end of a 10-day stint in Perth and won’t be getting ahead of themselves.

However tonight’s brutal 80-point dismantling of the hapless Suns, 21.13 (139) to 9.5 (59), added to a growing body of evidence from the opening month of the season that West Coast are the real deal.

Had Sydney superstar Lance Franklin been sidelined in the opening round rather than West Coast spearhead Josh Kennedy, it’s a fair bet the Eagles would be four and zip.
