West Coast came away with a win from the last game of the AFL pre-season triple-header at Subiaco's Patersons Stadium on Saturday night.

The Eagles were rested after playing in the first game against Geelong and came out inspired against their cross-town rivals.

They kicked the first three goals through Matt Priddis, Jeremy McGovern and Shannon Hurn (super goal) and went on to win 1.4.7 (40) to 0.2.4 (16).

While all three sides will take plenty out of the opening hitouts, it will make it difficult for any of Geelong, Fremantle or West Coast to now make the cup final in the round-robin format.

However, the Eagles are in the best position given they lost to Geelong by just two points and beat the Dockers by 24.

Despite resting Mark LeCras and Jack Darling for the second game after both impressed in the forward-line against Geelong, West Coast still looked impressive against the Dockers led by two goals and 10 possessions from Priddis.

Hurn was terrific with 11 disposals and a super goal, with Scott Selwood also gathering 10 touches.

Fremantle found the going much tougher against the Eagles than Geelong, but coach Ross Lyon has plenty to work on with the likes of Matthew Pavlich, Nat Fyfe, Ryan Crowley and David Mundy still to return.
