West Perth defender Ben Johnson was West Coast's second selection in the 2019 draft.
West Coast career[edit | edit source]
Johnson, a cousin of ruck great Dean Cox and an Eagles supporter growing up, played in WA's winning under-18 side before making his senior debut for West Perth late in the year. On being drafted he was described as having speed and a powerful kick. His first season was wrecked by injuries including a shoulder problem and osteitis pubis, although the absence of any reserves football in 2020 would have limited his opportunities in any event.
