AFL exports | Cole sinks another, Mundy among best

By Meg Saultry

Tom Cole sure does love kicking a goal - the defender just kicked his third AFL major in as many games.

In West Coast's 15-point win over St Kilda on Thursday night, Cole went forward to sink the final goal of the game and put the cherry on top of the Eagles’ victory.

First career goal for Cole the cherry on top

The win seals West Coast's spot in the AFL top eight ahead of the final home-and-away round this week.

In what was a see-sawing game, the Eagles went into the final quarter 12 points up before the Saints kicked ahead in the early minutes of the quarter.

But the Eagles’ fighting spirit won out in the end, kicking the final four goals of the game to book their golden ticket in the finals.

Along with his goal, Cole picked up eight disposals and four tackles in the clash.

West Coast will face North Melbourne this Thursday with the hope of securing a top-four finish.

● David Mundy continues to defy age, with the Seymour veteran again among Fremantle's best in its colossal 64-point win over North Melbourne on Saturday.

The match-winning score was Fremantle's highest return of the season and its seventh win in 12 matches.

With the match essentially over by half-time - the Dockers were five goals up going into the second half and the margin only grew from there - the young side showed why it is one of the emerging teams this year.

But Mundy still remains at the core. The 34-year-old racked up an equal match-high 24 disposals, along with five clearances and seven score involvements in another classy performance.

Fremantle club will face Western Bulldogs on Sunday, but finals are off the cards for the club this year.
