Four-time All Australian Jeremy McGovern and his West Coast Eagles teammates fell to their second straight defeat after a 92-point thrashing at the hands of Sydney in Geelong on Sunday.

McGovern was a strong contributor for the Eagles but wasn’t able to help his side stop a rampaging Swans.

The North Albany product returned from injury last round and is slowly working his way back into form with more match fitness and game time under his belt.

McGovern racked up 18 disposals and six marks in the 3.8 (26) to 18.10 (118) loss.

The Eagles’ seventh loss of the season firmly dented their top-eight chances, leaving the door open for other teams to push them out.

Fellow North Albany product Darcy Cameron wasn’t able to help Collingwood surge past St Kilda on Sunday, with the Magpies falling short by nine points.

The Magpies trailed by 43 points at the last change and despite kicking five unanswered goals, they fell just short.

Cameron finished with 10 touches and three marks, registering two behinds in the 8.13 (61) to 10.10 (70) result.

Meanwhile, round 13 of the WAFL competition was postponed because of the lockdown situation in the Perth and Peel regions.
