West Coast Eagles Wiki

After a second consecutive poor season, West Coast elected to rebuild through the draft rather than continue with the previous year's attempt at topping up by trading for players with experience. It worked sensationally, with premiership captain Chris Judd and fellow flag winners Ashley Hansen, Mark Seaby and Quinten Lynch all acquired during this period.
