West Coast Eagles Wiki

Still lacking draft capital from the Tim Kelly trade the previous year, West Coast were quiet during the annual exchange period, making some minor moves to bring in Alex Witherden from Brisbane and Zac Langdon from GWS Giants while sending Tom Hickey to Sydney. The club also farewelled premiership defenders Will Schofield and Lewis Jetta.
