Eagles descend on Davis Park

James Grabski and Phil Narkle said the Our Davis Park event was a great success

The West Coast Eagles recently showed its support for the South West Metropolitan Partnership Forum’s Our Davis Park event, which coincided with National Child Protection Week.

The Our Davis Park event is a community initiative that encourages engagement through activities, education and training for young people and children who live near Davis Park in Beaconsfield.

West Coast Eagles indigenous liaison officer Phil Narkle and schools and community coordinator James Grabski volunteered their time to coordinate several interactive football activities. Narkle and Grabski also distributed West Coast Eagles promotional giveaways to those who participated.  

“This is the second year that the West Coast Eagles have supported this great initiative,” Grabski said.  

“Community events like this are important to...

Brownlow medal contenders

Brownlow Medal 2017 looks like it could be a Dustin Martin coronation ceremony.

The Tiger superstar is an unbackable favourite to take home 'Charlie' for the first time, particularly with last year's winner, Patrick Dangerfield, ineligible.

But who could give Dusty a fright? Will it be another year of midfield domination? Could a star Eagle swoop in and finish towards the top of the count?

Spearhead Josh Kennedy, intercept king Jeremy McGovern and half-back Elliot Yeo were the club's best players this year, and it will be interesting to see how strongly they poll. Sam Mitchell traditionally attracts votes and will be one to watch. The Eagles are tipped to poll about 63 votes all up.

Best chance: Josh Kennedy
The two-time Coleman medallist burst out of the blocks with a seven-goal haul in round one and should receive top marks. After missing five games mid-season, he was the...

Kennedy rues inconsistent year

AFL 2017 First Semi Final - GWS v West Coast

Josh Kennedy says inconsistentcy hurt the Eagles in 2017

West Coast’s 2017 premiership campaign was plagued by inconsistent performances and lost opportunities, according to Josh Kennedy.

The key forward told 6PR’s Breakfast program that scraping into September and bowing out in a semi-final against Greater Western Sydney was far from a desirable outcome for the club.

Two years removed from his last grand final appearance, Kennedy said it was critical to have momentum on your side at the pointy end of the year.

“Up and down, probably inconsistent, is probably a good word to put it at, we were just inconsistent throughout the year,” Kennedy said.

“We just scraped into the finals and had a good first final but GWS were way too good for us on the weekend and we did play poor, but they played unreal and absolutely smashed us.

“Making a grand final two years ago and realising now how...

Club champs kick on

Best of LeCras and Mackenzie in 2017 Highlights from Mark LeCras and Eric Mackenzie's 2017 season

John Worsfold medallists Mark LeCras and Eric Mackenzie will remain a part of the club’s drive to push up the premiership table, with each of them signing one-year contract extensions.

LeCras, the 2010 Club Champion, and Mackenzie, who won the award in 2014, put pen to paper before today commencing their post-season break.

The pair will also be in the position to hit significant personal milestones with LeCras on the brink of becoming the 20th player to play 200 games for the club and Mackenzie just shy of the 150-game mark that would see him qualify for life membership.

“We are pleased that both players have re-signed and will be a part of our 2018 campaign,” said Craig Vozzo, General Manager Football. “They are quality people who have made significant contributions to our club and...

AFL 2017 First Semi Final - GWS v West Coast

Nathan Vardy takes a strong contested mark against GWS' Adam Tomlinson

Nathan Vardy would welcome a move to West Coast’s forward line if it helps him retain a spot in the club’s starting 22 next year.

Vardy led the Eagles’ ruck division in the absence of Nic Naitanui and Scott Lycett this year, but he knows competition will be hot to secure a place in the side following their returns in 2018.

The 26-year-old experienced his most productive AFL season to date by playing 22 games, almost twice as many as the 25 he conjured during seven injury-riddled years at Geelong.

Vardy averaged 23.6 hit-outs, 8.4 disposals, 2.4 marks and 1.7 clearances per game this year, but he knows clunking more marks and kicking more goals will be the key to success next year.

The retirees bid farewell Sam Mitchell, Matt Priddis and Drew Petrie give their final interview together following their side's loss to the Giants

AFL 2017 First Semi Final - GWS v West Coast

Matt Priddis won't consider a retirement backflip despite calls for him to play on

Champion West Coast midfield Matt Priddis says there is no chance he will backflip on his retirement plans.

Priddis, who announced his retirement in July despite signing a one-year contract extension with the Eagles in April, said the speed of the game was too much for his weary legs to handle.

After finishing off the year in sensational fashion, many suggested the tackling-machine should put his retirement plans on hold.

But Priddis confirmed season 2017 would be his last following the club’s semi-final loss to Greater Western Sydney.

Schloithe claims Sandover Medal

Haiden Schloithe in action for Western Australia against Victoria earlier this year

South Fremantle midfielder Haiden Schloithe has boosted his hopes of a second chance at AFL level after claiming the Sandover Medal on Monday night. 

Schloithe polled 52 votes – the highest tally in four seasons under the WAFL's 5-4-3-2-1 system – to finish seven clear of Bulldogs teammate and fellow draft hopeful Tim Kelly. 

Subiaco captain Kyal Horsley rounded out the top three, finishing with 39 votes.

Schloithe was on Fremantle's rookie list in 2012 and '13 but the 182cm midfielder didn't play a game. 

However, the 24-year-old could now come under closer consideration from AFL recruiters looking for a mature-aged onballer. 

Schloithe averaged 28 disposals and showed he can go forward by booting 27 goals in 19 games. 

He has been invited to the WA State Combine next month, which requires interest...

Matt Priddis is looking forward to seeing what Daniel Venables can produce next year

The West Coast Eagles has been described by coach Adam Simpson as a club “in transition”.

The oldest and most experienced list heading into 2017, the Eagles will boast a “completely different” list profile as they approach next season in large part due to the retirements of Sam Mitchell, Drew Petrie, Sam Butler and Matt Priddis.

One knock on the Eagles this season has been a lack of pace through the midfield, and retiring great Matt Priddis says the Eagles have the perfect man to fit the bill – the Eagles’ top selection from last year’s draft, Daniel Venables.

West Coast’s conditioning staff carefully managed Venables during the pre-season after he arrived at the club with a foot injury that derailed his 2016 season.

Retiring West Coast ruck-forward Drew Petrie is keen to remain at the Eagles in an off-field role next year.

Petrie bowed out of his on-field career in disappointing fashion at the weekend after playing 332 games and booting 444 goals.

Speaking to The West Australian following the Eagles’ semi-final loss to the Giants, Petrie said he felt “reinvigorated” following his move to Western Australia.

He also indicated that his family intended to stay in Perth for the near future.

“While I take a moment to reflect I have got to start thinking about what is next,” Petrie told The West Australian.

“I have got a few irons in the fire. We would like to stay in Perth for a bit longer.

Semi-final highlights v Giants The Giants and Eagles clash in the semi finals

AFL 2017 First Semi Final - GWS v West Coast

Sam Mitchell was one of the Eagles' best in his final AFL game

STEVE Johnson is back and so is Greater Western Sydney, with the mercurial forward kicking six second half goals in his team's 67-point rout of a tired West Coast at Spotless Stadium.

The runaway 19.11 (125) to 9.4 (58) victory books the Giants a preliminary final with Richmond at the MCG next Saturday.

And just one week after being dropped, Johnson was the star of the show.

With his team leading by 35 points at half-time and most of the grunt work already done, Johnson turned back the clock and gave a little dose of magic as the Giants played their best football for more than a month.

The former Cat kicked four goals in the third quarter, added two more in the last and had a late chance for a seventh goal, but failed to make the distance...

Star defender Jeremy McGovern consoles retiring Eagles great Matt Priddis

Adam Simpson wasn't letting on much, but even after being belted by GWS on Saturday night, the West Coast coach said he is excited about what lies ahead in 2018.

With Matt Priddis, Sam Mitchell and Drew Petrie all retiring, the Eagles will have a vastly younger list when round one rolls around next season.

Simpson said some young Eagles had A-grade potential, and with Nic Naitanui a virtual new recruit next year after missing a season with his ACL, it was exciting times ahead.

He said they would learn lessons from a Giants team that outworked and outran his men.

"We've been in transition for a little bit with some of our list and how we want to work it," Simpson said.

"We need to get better across the...
