West Coast Eagles Wiki

Far and away the biggest success of West Coast's offseason came in the pre-draft, when they picked up future Club Champion Glen Jakovich and fellow 1992 premiership player Mitchell White. Few of the other inclusions played more than a handful of games, with the best being Matt Clape who played 23 games before going on to achieve premiership success with Carlton.
