Relevant events for the week Wednesday 14 August 2013 - Tuesday 20 August 2013 (Prev|Next)

Wednesday 14 August[]

West Coast announced that forward LeCras would miss at least the Geelong game due to the rib injury he suffered against Essendon.

Thursday 15 August[]

Popular veterans Adam Selwood and Mark Nicoski announced their retirement. Selwood, who had played 186 games including the 2006 grand final, will be available for selection for the remainder of the year, but Nicoski, who hadn't appeared at AFL level since the 2011 season, was out for the year with a wrist injury.

Shuey was named to return from a hamstring injury against Geelong and youngster Carter was also called up. The pair replaced the injured LeCras and the omitted Wilson. West Coast avoided the temptation to give games to the retiring Adam Selwood and veteran Embley, the latter needing two games to reach the 250 mark and also likely to retire at the end of the year.
