Local product Oscar Allen was West Coast's second selection in the 2017 draft.

West Coast careerEdit

A mobile mid-sized forward in the mold of fellow West Perth junior Jack Darling, Allen leapt into first-round calculation after a superb Under-18 campaign in which he won the Larke Medal and All-Australian selection. West Coast, the side he supported growing up, pounced when he was overlooked in the top 20 selections.[1]

After a delayed start to 2018 due to a leg injury, Allen was trialled in the backline with East Perth. He showed strong form with the Royals and was given a midseason debut against the Giants, partnering Will Schofield in defence, but despite a positive outing made way the following week when a host of stars returned. Allen shifted to attack with the Royals and again impressed, making a second AFL appearance in the final game of the regular season as a forward. He was again squeezed out when Josh Kennedy returned for the finals, and was an emergency throughout the victorious finals campaign.

Following a strong pre-season and with a number of the premiership forwards unavailable, Allen was given an opportunity early in the 2019 season and performed well, playing 21 games for the season in a number of roles including backup ruck. He received a Rising Star nomination late in the year, but missed the first final due to knee soreness and could not force his way back into the side.
