An impressive win by West Coast could have come at the ultimate cost.
Just as the Eagles looked like they had flicked the switch and were looking like the team that made the grand final last year, Nic Naitanui grabbed his knee instantly after trying to spoil a marking contest.
Naitanui’s knee injury is a massive talking point at the final break. #AFLEaglesHawkshttps://t.co/CBVbExwBbD

West Coast Eagles are yet to provide any medical update on the severity of the injury, however it is safe to say that the West Coast Eagles finals campaign could rest on the result from the scans on Monday.
Thinking of you, @RealNaitanui
