Scans have confirmed West Coast’s worst fears, with star ruckman Nic Naitanui suffering an ACL year during the Eagles’ win over Collingwood on Sunday.

It’s the second ACL tear of Naitanui’s career, after he missed the entire 2017 season following the same injury on his other knee late in the 2016 home and away season.
