West Coast showing interest in discarded Roo Drew Petrie

West Coast has expressed interest in securing North Melbourne big man Drew Petrie for next season.

Petrie’s contract was not renewed at the Roos but former teammate and Eagles’ coach Adam Simpson could help extend his playing career in the west.

The Eagles need ready-made ruck-forward support after losing Nic Naitanui to a year-long knee injury. Sources on Sunday confirmed Petrie, 33, was one of a number of big men the Eagles were considering ahead of next month’s trade period.

The Eagles could add Petrie for nothing as a delisted free agent.

The Eagles have not yet formally approached Petrie but are expected to make contact with the 2011 All-Australian now the Roos’ season has finished.
