Former top-ten draft pick Jarrod Pickett joined West Coast's standalone reserves side for its third season.

GWS Giants and Carlton career[]

After a standout performance for the state under-18s, Pickett was drafted by the Giants with the fourth pick in the 2014 national draft. Injury prevented him from playing a senior game, and after two years he was traded to Carlton. Pickett played 17 games for the Blues in his first two years, but suffered a knee injury late in the 2018 season and agreed to a mutual release from the club midway through 2019 to return to family in Western Australia, following ongoing discussions over his motivation to continue at the highest level.[1]

West Coast career[]

Pickett trained with West Coast ahead of the 2020 season but was not picked up. He signed with his junior club South Fremantle[2] but did not play a game for them, and spent the 2021 season with Northam club Railways.[3] He joined the Eagles reserves in January 2022, linking up with his former junior coach Rob Wiley.[4] However, Pickett played just one game, a 123-point loss to East Fremantle, and failed to record a possession after suffering a hamstring injury early in the match.[5]
