Is Degoey clear to play or does he still have legal issues in NY? Would have been my first forward picked this year on last year's form. Seems a safer bet that Thomas, Butters or Stringer types who have more question marks over time spent forward.

Will be interesting to see if there are repercussions from the AFL. Probably not if the respective legal systems have dealt with the matter.
Even if he lines up round 1 (very unlikey imo) it would be tough to pick him with his pre-season being so disrupted. And Collingwood might have marked his cards as he's OOC this year, could end up forward again if they give others who will be there next year a go in the middle.

Be interesting to see if the club imposes anything itself.
Probably depends if they see him staying there long term. Might just decide he's a dead-sh*t who will never grow up and let him go at the end of the year. If that's the case there is no need to keep him sweet, so they can make an example of him.

The bloke couldn't complain, he's had plenty of chances.

Send him to Gold Coast you think and really make him suffer :moustache:

I think he's put in for a medical exemption, no joke!

Wingard has been a tease for a number of years....but after moments of petulance in 2020/2021, did the penny finally drop late last season? Or was this just a Clarkson farewell performance unlikely to be repeated?

Seems similar to Tobey Greene. Playing mostly forward, the scoring isnt consistent for entire season.
Chad should never be mentioned on this forum ever again.
Anyone else now have Chad at F2 or just me?

West Coast star Willie Rioli has made a significant transformation from a part-time athlete living interstate to professional footballer with his hard work since the start of pre-season now clearly evident. Rioli emerged from the club’s Christmas break in the best condition witnessed publicly since he returned from a two-year suspension for tampering with a urine sample.

The 26-year-old has shed the bulk of the weight he gained while living on the Tiwi Islands throughout his suspension. With two months until round one, he is now ideally placed to attack training sessions in a bid to reach similar fitness levels to the ones he displayed during his last appearance on an AFL field in September 2019. Rioli’s ability to run and cover ground for the Eagles was crucial to their 2018 premiership. He ran 14.8km on grand final day - the second largest tally by a West Coast player behind only tagger Mark Hutchings. He also ran more than 14km in his last AFL game - the 2019 elimination final win over Essendon at Optus Stadium.

The dynamic forward broke down with soft tissue injuries when attempting to re-build his body upon returning to the Eagles midway through last season. West Coast had been hopeful of him being fit to play in round 23 given that was when his suspension ended. But having spent nearly two years running by himself and without access to AFL facilities or staff, the challenge of returning to elite sport proved to be too big. Rioli has used the extra time over pre-season to gradually build himself up and the benefits are now showing. While it is clear he still has work to do compared to many of his chiselled teammates, his summer progress bodes well for having an impact upon his return to the AFL when West Coast opens their season against Gold Coast in round one.

Thoughts on Dunkley gents??
Playing pure mid he can rack up some big scores.
Has fwd/mid DPP which is always good
Injury prone
Used in a weird negative role around stoppages (?) late last season after coming back from injury and averaged 70 playing 5 of the last 6 rounds
Bevo!

I've got him. He's the first to come into the centre if Libba's knees disintegrate.
