Redemption on Masten's mind

Chris Masten won West Coast's 2km time trial yesterday

West Coast midfielder Chris Masten is confident he can recapture his best form following a trying 2017 campaign.

After averaging close to 22 AFL games the past four seasons, the 28-year-old only mustered 13 senior appearances in 2017.

He featured in the Eagles’ first 10 fixtures of the year but was omitted for the club’s round 10 bout with Gold Coast at Metricon Stadium.

Masten forced his way back into the side on three occasions following strong performances in the WAFL, but was edged out of the starting 22 for West Coast’s round 21 clash with Carlton and did not pull on the club’s revered blue and gold guernsey for the remainder of the year.

“It was a tough end to the year last year,” Masten admitted to 6PR’s Sportsday WA program last night.

“I think once I lost my spot and came back I was just nowhere with my confidence. A...

Eagles could unleash new-look forward line

Simmo126 portrait.jpg

Adam Simpson says West Coast has plenty of forwards to pick from in 2018

West Coast senior coach Adam Simpson is open to the idea of unleashing a new-look forward line in 2018.

Speaking ahead of the club’s first full-squad training session at Lathlain Park, Simpson said an influx of exciting goal kickers plus the development of some young attacking players might influence who lined up the forward 50 next year.

“With our side last year and the balance, we probably had too many mids in our side and that’s probably through the lack of options we had in forwards,” Simpson said.

“I think with [Liam] Ryan, [Willie] Rioli, [Mark] LeCras, [Jamie] Cripps and someone like a [Daniel] Venables that they all could play in the same side.

“It will be different.”

Like the majority of West Coast fans, Simpson is looking forward to seeing what excitement machine Liam Ryan could produce this...

Spots up for grabs: Hurn

Hurn press conference 04.12.17 West Coast Eagles captain Shannon Hurn speaks to the media after the senior players made their first appearance at pre-season training

West Coast Eagles captain Shannon Hurn reckons a host of fresh faces could force their way into the club’s starting 22 if they put in the hard yards this summer.

Speaking to the media following the club’s annual time trial at the Western Australian Athletics Stadium, Hurn said every player on West Coast’s list was vying for a round one start.

“I think a lot of blokes could easily come in and play if they have a good pre-season,” Hurn said.

“I certainly think blokes have done their program over the break and that’s always the hardest things because you’re by yourself and you can take a shortcut if you want because no one is going to see you,” Hurn said.

“I think blokes understand that it’s only three weeks...

Brayshaw ready for big pre-season

Brayshaw press conference 01.12.17 West Coast Eagles draftee Hamish Brayshaw speaks to the media after being drafted to the Eagles with pick 68 in the 2017 National Draft

BraySch portrait.jpg

Hamish Brayshaw is looking forward to working hard this pre-season

West Coast draftee Hamish Brayshaw is targeting a gruelling pre-season before thinking about his first AFL game after joining a massive group of Eagles who will be fighting to make their debuts next year.

The Eagles have an AFL-high 16 players who are yet to taste senior football (the Western Bulldogs have a League-low of seven) after picking up six players at the NAB AFL Draft and three new rookies.

The draftees joined first-year players Daniel Venables, Josh Rotham, Willie Rioli and Jake Waterman, second-year tall forward Matthew Allen, and category-B rookies Tarir Bayok and Francis Watson in waiting to make their debuts.

Masten claims another time trial crown

TT2018 landscape.jpg

Chris Masten and Liam Duggan slugged it out for West Coast's 2km time trial crown this morning

Chris Masten added another time trial crown to his collection following this morning’s 2km test at the Western Australian Athletics Stadium.

The 28-year-old was locked in a tight tussle with fellow midfielder Liam Duggan for most of the journey before he edged ahead down the back straight to claim victory.

Several Eagles recorded personal best times in wet, wintry conditions.

Second-year player Francis Watson paced himself to perfection en route to recording a new personal benchmark, while key forwards Matthew Allen and Jake Waterman kept pace with some of the club’s best runners.

Dashing defenders Tom Cole and Jackson Nelson improved on their previous benchmarks, as did budding small forward Willie Rioli.

Brayden Ainsworth was the pick of the 2017 draftee crop, but a number of other...

O'Brien has high hopes for Olango

OlangoOb landscape1.jpg

West Coast will be patient with rookie ruckman Tony Olango

West Coast national recruiting manager Rohan O’Brien reckons rookie ruckman Tony Olango has some unique skills that could make him an AFL star of the future.

The Eagles used pick No.27 in Monday’s rookie draft to snare Olango, who has been honing his craft with NEAFL club Northern Territory Thunder for the past year.

The 19-year-old was tipped to go to an AFL club last year, but was overlooked in all drafts.

O’Brien said the Eagles had been keeping a close eye on the Kenyan-born Sudanese talent and believed he was ready to step up to the elite level in 2018.

“The thing with young ruckmen is you want them to have the athleticism, which the game requires now, and to be competitive. We think Tony’s got that,” O’Brien told the NT News.

“He’s got some unique attributes with his leap and speed, and he’s a tall fella – they’re...

Hamish Brayshaw is eager to embrace the rigours of his first AFL pre-season

Hamish Brayshaw was preparing for another bout of draft heartache when his name remained uncalled 67 picks in last Friday’s national ballot.

After missing out during last year’s draft, the 19-year-old’s hopes of realising his AFL dream were starting to fade until, seemingly out of nowhere, he was confirmed as West Coast’s sixth and final selection in the 2017 NAB AFL Draft.

“I was very nervous going in. I went through it last year and knew what to expect from not getting picked up,” Brayshaw said post-draft.

“I wasn’t sure what to expect. I thought I might be a chance for a late pick or a rookie selection, but you can never be too sure with these things. I just had my fingers crossed the whole time and when my name got called out I was over the moon. I couldn’t have been happier.”
