Game Chat – Port v West Coast

Written by Motts on March 8 2015

West Coast will leave first-round draft pick Liam Duggan and father-son selection Alec Waterman at home despite naming the pair for Sunday’s NAB Challenge match against Port Adelaide at Norwood Oval.

The 2014 draftees were originally included in the Eagles’ 29-man squad to take on a near full-strength Power.

Duggan, the No.11 selection in last year’s national draft, is coming off an interrupted pre-season after rolling an ankle at training last month.

The Eagles have also been forced to back off the training loads for Waterman – the son of dual premiership defender Chris Waterman – in recent weeks as he battles soreness.

The Eagles will rest Nic Naitanui (back) for a second straight week, while fellow ruckman Callum Sinclair is unavailable because of a broken thumb that is expected to sideline him for a month.

West Coast football manager Craig Vozzo said the make-up of the squad hadn’t been finalised.

But he did confirm the hit-out was a good chance for Scott Lycett and key-position prospect Fraser McInnes in the absence of the club’s two other recognised ruckmen.

“Fraser has been training with our ruck group, which is coached by Dean Cox, for the entire pre- season,” Vozzo said.

“He’s done a bit of ruck work for East Perth in the past. He’ll work in tandem with Scott this week.”

West Coast are still expected to play some inexperienced players, with third-year midfielder Brant Colledge and young talls Rowen Powell and Tom Lamb named.

THE Power’s will be going in with a strong line-up.

No debutants have been named, with re-drafted rookie Nathan Krakouer the only newly listed player to be named in the squad.

  1. Yeah PA well aware of his price. However alot of people will be running with Deledio at F1 and with his past Achilles injury is a huge risk.
    Therefore I would rather pay the extra 40k and leave Deledio out and spend 40k less for Bennell who is risk also but has a huge upside if he can stay on the park and it gives me the extra cash for Gray.
    IMO I reckon Gray could average 110-120ppg so will justify the outlay.

  2. Gray will be in the top 3 SC scorers of all players this year now that he is injury free and is a very viable Captain option for home games.
