Suns sizzle to record win in the west

West Coast's woes continued as they slumped to a heavy loss at home against an energetic Gold Coast outfit. Led by gun midfielder Matt Rowell, the Suns' 70-point winning margin was their biggest-ever outside of Queensland and lifted them back to within striking distance of the top eight, while the besieged Eagles slipped to last and suffered another injury blow when forward Jack Darling succumbed to a potentially-serious arm injury.
