Sounds like we're gonna get Petrie then... :P

Also think we're making room for Sumich to come back.

Petrie seriosuly was the biggest spud donning an afl jersey this year... but he was played as a forward and not a backup ruckman... Still unsure about the idea... Lobbs a must but the greedy fuker wants 750k for his 2nd contract. not even ablett or judd got that for their 2nd contract...

But we will need 2 more ruckman to asisst giles and lycett.... getting just the one more will leave us with only 3 for most of the year which is still to scarce.

best option. draft one and get lobb. chances of this are slim. But we can hope.

he will probably go too high, would be good for pick 12 for sure. Ruckman are hard to find... I think someone would take him around pick 6-10.

Yeah I dunno much about the draft but I assumed English would be gone by then. Plus I would probably rather pick a fast outside mid with good skills at our first pick and take a punt on a really raw ruckman. We really only need someone for next season as the NicNat-Lycett combo will see us through for some time.

Fast outside mid... Hmm seems like lewis jetta lol. We need some big bodies mids i reckon- the fyfe/danger/ bont/ kennedy(syd) type. But we also lack pace, and the guys who do have it hill, jetta dont do anything, so we need pace too which makes it hard on what to take first. Duggan was a pick 12 and he hasnt come on, not strong and slow as well. You need to be one at least to be decent. but then we need a ruck too haha. Hopefully there is still a ruckman floating arounnd at like pick 50 or something for us to snag.

yeah a long way to come for just one year. dont bother Drew!

http://www.afl.com.au/news/2016-09-14/lycetts-knee-causing-eagles-serious-concerns

THERE are serious concerns over West Coast ruckman Scott Lycett's 2017 campaign, after he was sent to Melbourne to get a second opinion on his posterior cruciate ligament injury.

Lycett battled a sore left knee in the last month of the season. He did some damage to his PCL midway through the season but played on.

He suffered several knocks that hampered him in the last two rounds of the home and away season and the elimination final where he hobbled off early in the second term against the Bulldogs after hurting the knee while laying a tackle.

The Eagles have confirmed Lycett needs some kind of surgery but the extent of the operation is unclear.

AFL.com.au understands that the normal course of action for a partial PCL tear is rest and recovery but a complete tear would require a reconstruction that could rule him out for anywhere between six and 12 months. Any meniscus or cartilage damage would also be concerning going forward.

flower me,this is obviously why we are looking at Petrie

what are you people worried about??  ::)

you just take Petrie for a year - some of his best years from memory were as the chop-out ruck ...
did he play with Simmo in any period??

only issue is if he has to be primary ruck ... JINX!!!  ;)

but seriously, he would be a good 3rd tall option after JJK/Darls - why not on a year contract - would he qualify for veteran minimum??

Lycett update from today

http://www.westcoasteagles.com.au/news/2016-09-15/lycett-hopes-for-quick-knee-fix

West Coast ruckman Scott Lycett says a posterior cruciate ligament reconstruction is possible following a consultation with Melbourne surgeon Julian Feller on Wednesday.

Lycett flew to Melbourne with a West Coast physio to seek a second opinion on the PCL injury in his left knee.

The Eagles do have experienced consultant surgeons in Perth who performed Nic Naitanui's anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction.

But the club hasn't had a PCL injury since Michael Gardiner in 2004, and it is understood that the decision to consult Feller was simply a case of due diligence given PCL injuries are far less frequent.

Lycett told 6PR on Thursday morning that he was still unclear on the type of surgery needed following the consultation yesterday, but he conceded a reconstruction was possible.

http://www.westcoasteagles.com.au/news/2016-09-16/mcgovern-goes-under-the-knife

All Australian defender Jeremy McGovern hopes his latest round of surgery will shore up the stability of his left shoulder.

The key Eagle told 6IX he went under the knife earlier this week to remedy a shoulder issue that had troubled him since the first game of the season against Brisbane.

“(It’s been troubling me) since round one; it was a good start to the year, let’s put it that way,” McGovern said, facetiously.

http://www.westcoasteagles.com.au/news/2016-09-15/hernia-healed-but-pain-lingers-kennedy

West Coast super boot Josh Kennedy says he'll be up and running in no time after going under the knife to remedy a hernia recently.

The 2016 Coleman medallist told 6PR he had surgery the day after West Coast's elimination final loss to the Western Bulldogs.

Not one to give much away on the field, Kennedy admitted the hernia had been troubling him for approximately “six or seven weeks”, hence his quick transition from the playing field to the operating table last week.

While Kennedy felt almost immediate relief following the surgery, he said the hurt of the Eagles’ disappointing finals exit would linger for some time.

Onto bigger and better things next season lads.

B&Fs often tend to throw up a few surprises. A lot of it is based on the internal off-field performance too so its a fair assumption that Captain Hurn was more productive here giving him the edge over Gov even if onfield Gov had a better year

- Petrie pretty much on stand by while we continue to explore options, but he's def plan B by the sounds of things

- Darling not going anywhere

- EMack required

- Brown pondering options

- Balla possible, but all the attention for now is on finding a tall who can play ruck/fwd

Mitch Brown has asked to be traded to Victoria

Was always going to happen with his wife being an athlete in VIC

No big loss IMO. Horrible ruck and forward and we've got enough defenders

Dreaming :P

He's an unrestricted free agent, so I'm pretty sure he can walk? Certainly no team should be silly enough to look at trading for him, especially for a player in the form of Hamling/Adams who are years younger.

Agree I wanna make a fairly hard play for Adams, and if not Adams then perhaps Marsh just as depth on the cheap.

Adams is the one though, don't need Freo getting too many young keys on the cheap!

First glance at our 2017 draw and it looks pretty sweet

Hawks in Round 5, Dogs in Round 15 and GWS in Round 22 are the only AWAY games we have vs this years Top 8 teams!

We only play the Doggies and GWS twice, all other Top 8 teams once and all at home except Hawks

$1.65 to make the 8 seems good odds as with the addition of Mitchell and a good draw it's hard to see them missing. NicNat being out is the big question I guess though.

NicNat is your MVP as in without him your teams chances take a definite tumble ... you must admit, with him in, your team is a wholly different prospect than w/out no??

and I don't mean in a Capt Obvious way, but when he wasn't quite right coming back from injury (can't quite remember cos i'm getting old - 2014 or 2015??), with him in the side you always looked a chance to beat anyone, but w/out the team just struggled ...

You're absolutely right. People hose him and saw how over rated he is. But he is so influential to us when playing- makes our average midfield look great.

I think we will still make 8. But wouldnt be plunging at $1.65. A few key injuries to guys like Kennedy/ Mcgovern/ priddis and we could be in big trouble. Then again- 3 key injuries to any club could fek them up.

Yeah I like it a lot. On talent he was top 5 before he got injured, so I'm happy to back the recruiters in to do their due diligence. Seems to have a lot more upside than Powell-Pepper, a fact that so many people just don't understand.

Stoked with Rotham and Waterman, and Rioli looks like he could have be anything (from nothing to something to great haha)

I've been thinking all along that it will work, but I've been convinced it won't from so many people.  The way I'm looking at it is he's a 3rd option for goal who won't even come close to getting the best defender, super accurate kick too.  JKK and Darling will be taking all the pressure off him.

NIC Naitanui made a welcome return to the training track this morning as West Coast's rehabilitation group started to thin a month out from pre-season matches.

The 26-year-old tested out the range of movement in his repaired knee at Wembley Sports Park in a significant milestone on his way back from a knee reconstruction.

Naitanui side stepped and ran on the spot, while raising his knees as he walked in several exercises designed to test his lateral movement.

He had no strapping on his left knee and was watched on by two trainers.

A HAMSTRING setback restricted emerging West Coast midfielder Liam Duggan to light duties, while recruit Nathan Vardy and utility Elliot Yeo were also held out of the Eagles' intraclub practice match on Wednesday.

Duggan is battling a minor leg issue, with the bulked-up third-year Eagle walking and running around the boundary at Wembley Sports Park as his teammates slogged through a three-hour session in scorching conditions.

It is unclear whether the 20-year-old will be available for the start of West Coast's JLT Community Series campaign against Greater Western Sydney on February 18.

Meanwhile, former Geelong big man Vardy is being managed after recently copping a knock to his medial ligament, a slight setback to the injury-plagued 25-year-old's career-best pre-season.


Vardy and Yeo, who is battling a minor calf complaint, joined in skills drills and ran laps but both continue to be sidelined from contact work.

He's a fragile old man, if someone bumps him in the line at the coffee shop we'll give him the week on light duties.

Not too concerned 8)

SHANNON Hurn will captain West Coast for a third straight year, while former Hawthorn skipper Sam Mitchell will provide support as a member of the leadership group.

Dynamic midfielder Luke Shuey has been elevated to co-vice captain alongside dual Coleman medallist Josh Kennedy.

Star duo Jeremy McGovern and Andrew Gaff have also been added to the leadership group with Eric Mackenzie, who was the club's best and fairest in 2014 before requiring a knee reconstruction early the following year, the only omission from last year's group.

Matt Priddis rounds out the seven-man group, which was decided by a player vote, before being ticked off by the football department and then the board.

Heaps of good news there, really think Mutimer and Watson will be big parts of the WCE future.

Unfortunately I feel as though Tom Lamb is pretty well done at the Eagles.



Also hoping Lycett is okay still for early in the season. He's so critical in us having a good season this year!

Heard some talk that Venables looked head and shoulders above the rest in the reserves. Would need a huge amount of injuries to get a look in but nice to know he is showing good signs

Yep can attest to that. Looked noticeably cleaner with the ball in hand and pushed forward to hit the scoreboard on a couple of occasions. A Shuey clone.
