Retiring Western Bulldogs champion Matthew Boyd has opened up on Triple M’s Rush Hour about the best ‘spray’ former coach Rodney Eade ever delivered. 

The tirade took place at half-time of a game a few years ago at Adelaide’s former home of footy AAMI Stadium. 

“He came in and we had a pretty bad first half and he took a handful of lollies and fruit and shoved it in his gob and proceeded to spray us – and I mean spray us with fruit and lollies,” Boyd told JB and Billy.

“I was so glad I wasn’t sitting in the front row of that one. He had some all-time great ones but he’s a great fella, ‘Rocket’.”

Eade coached the Doggies for seven seasons between 2005 and 2011 and took them to three consecutive preliminary finals (2008-10).
