West Coast is sweating on the fitness of four key players ahead of its clash with Richmond tonight.

The Herald Sun has reported that the Eagles will make a last minute call onΒ Matt Priddis (thigh strain/hip soreness), Jamie Cripps (thigh) Eric Mackenzie (bruised toe) and Jeremy McGovern (AC joint) who are all battling injuries.

They were all selected in West Coast’s team when the sides were announced on Thursday night, with coach Adam Simpson keen to give all four players as long as possible to prove their fitness for the match.

The two sides clash at Domain Stadium in Perth at 5.40pm AWST.



  1. Regardless of whether they’re sorr or not i’m sure they’ll be keen to play through the pain. There’s other players coming back from injury and potentially in the top 22 so i don’t think they’ll want to risk their spots.
