Brendon Ah Chee[edit | edit source]

(AFL: 8 games, 2 goals; WAFL: 10 games, 6 goals) - Had a delayed start after suffering an ankle injury in a pre-season clash with his old side. After a handful of games for East Perth, made his West Coast debut but was in and out of the side and used all over the field. Dropped for the final time after the penultimate home-and-away match and was an emergency throughout the finals series.

Matthew Allen[edit | edit source]

(WAFL: 17 games, 17 goals) - Showed strong form up forward for the Royals and was selected as an emergency on a number of occasions. Added another string to his bow in the second half of the season, showing he could also play as a big-bodied midfielder, and was a joint winner of East Perth's best and fairest, but was still unable to force his way into the AFL side.

Oscar Allen[edit | edit source]

(AFL: 2 games, 0 goals; WAFL: 14 games, 8 goals) - After a delayed start due to a leg injury, showed strong form in the Royals' backline and was given a midseason debut, but despite a positive outing made way the following week when a host of stars returned. Shifted to attack with East Perth and again impressed, making a second AFL appearance in the final game of the regular season as a forward before being squeezed out again when Kennedy returned for the finals.

Tom Barrass[edit | edit source]

(AFL: 19 games, 0 goals; WAFL: 2 games, 0 goals) - Began taking the opposition's top forward target on a regular basis. After missing action in the second half of the year due to a persistent back injury, hit form during the finals and performed a vital shutdown job on Collingwood giant Mason Cox in the Grand Final.

Jarrod Brander[edit | edit source]

(AFL: 1 game, 0 goals; WAFL: 17 games, 14 goals) - Impressed early with East Perth as a strong-marking forward and debuted against Sydney, but after a quiet game was dropped back to the Royals. Shifted to defence later in the season and generally acquitted himself well, but was unable to force his way back into the AFL side.

Hamish Brayshaw[edit | edit source]

(WAFL: 8 games, 5 goals; WAFL reserves: 2 games; 0 goals) - Required knee surgery during the pre-season that kept him out of action for the first half of 2018. Resumed mid-season in reserves before breaking into the senior side and turning in some eye-catching performances late in the year, including a 41-possession game against East Fremantle.

Tom Cole[edit | edit source]

(AFL: 21 games, 0 goals; WAFL: 2 games, 1 goal)- On track for a Round 1 berth following a strong pre-season until the tragic loss of his father Russell to cancer on the eve of the season. Called up early in the season and became a fixture in defence from that point on, earning a Rising Star nomination and a premiership medal.

(AFL: 25 games, 38 goals) - Turned in a career-best year, playing every game and regularly kicking bags of goals. His 38 goals for the season was behind only Darling and Kennedy and he kicked a crucial goal during the third term of the Grand Final.

Jack Darling[edit | edit source]

(AFL: 21 games, 48 goals) - Was the form player of the competition in the first half of 2018, and was second in the Coleman Medal race after kicking a career-high six goals against reigning premiers Richmond in round 9. However, an ankle injury interrupted his progress and kept him out of the side for a month, and he could not quite recapture the same form on his return. Turned in a sensational third quarter in the Grand Final which helped to turn the tide of the match.

Liam Duggan[edit | edit source]

(AFL: 24 games, 2 goals) - A regular in defence, played nearly every game and impressed with his ability to lock down on small forwards as well as create drive out of the backline, and was a solid contributor during the victorious Grand Final.

Andrew Gaff[edit | edit source]

(AFL: 19 games, 12 goals) - Playing more of an inside role, was on track for another All-Australian jumper and possibly even a Brownlow Medal before, in the late-season Derby, inexplicably throwing an off-the-ball punch that broke the jaw of Docker Andrew Brayshaw. Copped an eight-week suspension, ruling him out of any involvement in the club's finals campaign, but still earned AA selection.

(AFL: 20 games, 9 goals; WAFL: 2 games, 0 goals) - In and out of the side in the early stages, but by the end of the season had established himself as one of the league's best taggers, shutting down a number of dangerous midfielders including a superb blanketing job on Collingwood's Steele Sidebottom in the Grand Final.

Played one midseason game for East Perth but suffered a flare-up, and was ultimately put back in cotton wool for the rest of the year. (Retired)

Jeremy McGovern[edit | edit source]

(AFL: 24 games, 6 goals)- Had an eventful season, setting a league record for intercept marks, bringing up his 100th appearance late in the year, drifting forward to kick a game-winning goal after the siren against Port Adelaide, and achieving All-Australian selection for the third straight year. Was a key player in the side's victorious Grand Final after being in doubt to play due to internal bleeding, taking an intercept mark that led to Dom Sheed's game-winner.

Nic Naitanui[edit | edit source]

(AFL: 15 games, 6 goals) - Made a long-awaited return after sitting out all of 2017 following a knee reconstruction, and looked to have lost little of his athleticism. Missed only one game through suspension before heartbreakingly injuring his other knee against Collingwood, requiring another reconstruction.

Worked his way into the side in the second half of the year, was squeezed out for the first final but recalled when Sheppard tore a hamstring, and turned in one of his best games in the Grand Final.

Dom Sheed[edit | edit source]

(AFL: 18 games, 8 goals; WAFL: 4 games, 3 goals) - Form wavered and found himself dropped to East Perth on multiple occassions. The suspension of Gaff handed him one last opportunity which he took with both hands, putting in a number of strong performances during the finals series culminating in his clutch game-winning goal late in the Grand Final.
