2017 Draft Guns: Paddy Dow

2017 Draft Guns: Paddy Dow It's not hard to see why the rugged playmaker is a likely top-three pick

If you want a measure of Paddy Dow's consistency, his record in three seasons at Geelong Grammar is worth a mention. 

Since moving from Swan Hill in country Victoria to the prestigious boarding school, Dow has won its best and fairest three years running – from year 10 through to year 12 in 2017. If nothing else it shows what most recruiters know about Dow: he turns up to play every week. 

That was certainly the case this season at every level for Dow, who swiftly rose into early pick contention on the back of some very good showings for the Bendigo Pioneers and at national level for Vic Country. 

The midfielder won All Australian honours for his efforts during the under-18 carnival, and was in terrific form late in the year before a shoulder injury, and subsequent surgery, ruled...

Amanda Cox, Jessica van Beijnum, Brittany Lamb and Claire Santoro cannot wait to begin the Drive for MND Coral Coast Adventure

A team of four West Coast Eagles staffers will hit the road on a three-day voyage along Western Australia’s iconic coast to raise money for people battling motor neurone disease.

West Coast chief financial officer Amanda Cox, people and risk coordinator Claire Santoro, accounts assistant Brittany Lamb and community and partnerships coordinator Jessica van Beijnum will make tracks toward Dongara at 7am tomorrow for the first leg of the 2017 Motor Neurone Disease Association of WA Drive for MND Coral Coast Adventure.

The rest of the journey, which aims to raise awareness and funds for MNDAWA, will be a mystery to the convoy of approximately 30 cars participating in the event.

2017 Draft Guns: Ed Richards

2017 Draft Guns: Ed Richards The damaging defensive playmaker is part of Collingwood royalty.

It took Ed Richards a little while to understand the significance of his surname at Collingwood. And although he might not continue its famous history in the black and white, he does look set to add another chapter to its lineage at football's top level.

Richards, who shapes as an early pick at this year's NAB AFL Draft, is the grandson of former Pies great Ron Richards, who played 147 games for the Magpies between 1947-56. Ron's brother was Pies premiership skipper Lou Richards, who played 250 games for the club and is a Collingwood legend. 

Ed was something of a bolter as the season wore on in 2017, staking his draft claim with some excellent performances for the Oakleigh Chargers in the TAC Cup having missed selection for Vic Metro due to a knee injury around the time the squad was...

Naitanui surprises La Salle College students

AGLLaNic landscape.jpg

Nic Naitanui recently visited students participating in the AGL Aboriginal Leadership Program

Nic Naitanui surprised a group of La Salle College students with a special appearance during their last AGL Aboriginal Leadership Program session at Domain Stadium recently.

The students' visit to Subiaco Oval served as a reward to the dedicated cohort who successfully completed the six-session school-based workshop throughout the year.

In addition to meeting Naitanui, the students were treated to an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the Eagles' training facilities.

West Coast schools and community coordinator James Grabski said he was impressed by the students’ dedication to the program.

“It was terrific to work with this group of students and watch them grow in confidence while developing their leadership qualities,” Grabski said.

“A number of the students are boarders from the remote...

Kelly firming as first mature-age pick

KellyMat portrait.JPG

Tim Kelly finished second in the 2017 Sandover Medal count

West Australian midfielder Tim Kelly shapes as the first mature-age player to be picked at this year's NAB AFL Draft after an impressive season at WAFL level.

The 23-year-old had a brilliant year for South Fremantle and finished second in the competition's Sandover Medal to win an invitation to the NAB AFL Draft Combine.

A knee injury ruled him out of testing at the Combine at Etihad Stadium, but he remains in the mix as a top-30 pick on November 24.

West Coast has a bevy of second-round selections (No.21, 26, 32, 37) and has been linked to the local product, while Geelong is another club who could look at the 183cm prospect who kicked 26 goals from the midfield this season. The Cats hold three second-round picks (No.22, 24, 35).

Kelly first nominated for the draft in 2012 but enjoyed the best season of his career this year...

Naitanui raring to go

NicFit landscape.jpg

Nic Naitanui says he was a chance to return if the Eagles progressed further in the finals

If West Coast were playing today, Nic Naitanui would take to the field.

That's straight from the mouth of the most exciting ruckman in the game.

The high-flying big man did not play this year after tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee in round 22, 2016.

He would have been a chance to return had the Eagles progressed further than the semi-finals, where they lost convincingly to Greater Western Sydney.

"The knee is feeling just as good as it was before I hurt it," Naitanui told News Corp.

"I am ready to play.

"If we had a game today, I'd be ready to go."

Those words will be of great comfort to West Coast fans, who have seen 12 players retire or be delisted this year, including Matt Priddis and Sam Mitchell.

2017 Draft Guns: Aaron Naughton

2017 Draft Guns: Aaron Naughton The West Australian is considered one of the best key defenders in the draft pool.

AFL 2017 U18 Championships - Vic C v WA

Aaron Naughton ran 3.09 seconds in the 20-metre sprint at the NAB AFL Draft Combine

In the space of a few weeks late in the season, Aaron Naughton's draft stocks soared like few others in this year's crop. And with good reason.

Following an impressive NAB AFL Under-18 Championships for Western Australia, which saw him earn All Australian honours, Naughton was elevated to Peel Thunder's senior side for his WAFL debut.

Over a seven-week stretch the key defender never looked out of place, averaging seven marks a game and 14 disposals playing with and against AFL-listed players. 

The 17-year-old has also shown he can push forward and be a marking target, averaging nearly a goal a game in his seven 'colts' appearances this year, but he is more at home as one of the draft's...

Shuey added to International Rules squad

AFL 2017 Round 16 - West Coast v Port Adelaide

Luke Shuey is in line to play the last sporting event at Subiaco Oval

West Coast midfielder Luke Shuey has joined the Virgin Australia International Rules squad ahead of Australia’s first clash with Ireland at the Adelaide Oval on November 12.

Several Eagles were ruled out of the series due to injury, but Shuey’s addition means there will be at least one West Coast representative in the side.

Shuey was one of six players added to the squad today. His inclusion means he is also a chance to feature in the final sporting event at Subiaco Oval, the second leg of the series on November 18.

Hawthorn swingman Jack Gunston, Melbourne defender Neville Jetta, Carlton veteran Kade Simpson, plus North Melbourne bookends Ben Brown and Robbie Tarrant were added to the extended squad.

The squad will meet in Adelaide next week, when a captain and leadership group will be decided on.

2017 Draft Guns: Oscar Allen The West Australian forward has a strong pair of hands and is a straight kick for goal.

AFL 2017 U18 Championships - Vic C v WA

Oscar Allen exceeded some early-season expectations to push into first-round draft calculations

It has been a year of achievements for Oscar Allen, who has exceeded some early-season expectations to push himself into first-round draft calculations. 

The West Australian forward was named the best player of the NAB AFL Under-18 Championships after a consistent carnival that saw him average 16 disposals, six marks and nearly three goals a game for his state. 

After winning the Larke Medal, Allen went on to play at senior WAFL level for West Perth and then starred on AFL Grand Final morning in the NAB All Stars curtain-raiser game.

He again showed his marking ability and goal sense that day, finishing his impressive and consistent season with two goals from 18 disposals...

Coveted numbers up for grabs

AFL 2011 Rd 10 - Collingwood v West Coast

Andrew Embley's coveted number 32 will be up for grabs in 2018

Numbers available: 1, 10, 11, 12, 21, 22, 26, 32, 33

Some famous numbers are up for grabs at the Eagles this year, starting with the No.32 worn by Norm Smith medallist Andrew Embley in 250 games.

The jumper was vacated by delisted forward Simon Tunbridge and will be hot property. 

Sam Mitchell's No.1 worn for one season by the champion midfielder is also back on the market. It was most famously worn by Brett Heady for 136 games (he wore No.39 in his first season).

Delisted half-forward Tom Lamb has left No.10 free, given a new Eagle the opportunity to emulate the feats of premiership Eagles Michael Braun (228 games) and Don Pyke (132).

The only player to notch more than 100 games in No.21 is bullocking forward Quinten Lynch, and his number is on the market again after one season on the back of Drew PetrieJonathan...
