Jackson Nelson a late out for West Coast in Marvel Stadium clash with North Melbourne

West Coast have made a last-minute change to their side to face North Melbourne at Marvel Stadium, with Jackson Nelson a late out for the Eagles.

Claremont co-captain Declan Mountford, who played 12 games for the Kangaroos in 2017, will replace Nelson after the defender suffered a right knee injury in the warm-up.

Luke Edwards remains the medical substitute.

Nelson out, Mountford in was the 14th change to their round one line-up, with an injury to Andrew Gaff compounded by 12 other players being thrown into the AFL’s COVID-19 Health and Safety Protocols.

Nic Naitanui, Tom Barrass, Hugh Dixon, Harry Edwards, Brady Hough, Jamaine Jones, Josh Kennedy, Zac Langdon, Jack Redden, Josh Rotham, Jake Waterman and last weekend’s unused medical sub Isiah Winder will all miss today’s game.

WAFL top-up players Angus Dewar, Aaron Black and Stefan Giro will join listed players Callum Jamieson and Jack Williams as the five players making their club debuts, while former Eagle Brayden Ainsworth also returns to the blue and gold.

Giro will wear jumper number 22, Black will don 26, Ainsworth 33 and Dewar 39. Patrick Naish, who made his club debut will move from 43 to 36. 2021 draftee Williams will wear 34, while Jamieson will don 40.

Liam Ryan and Tim Kelly return from COVID-19 protocols that kept them from playing against Gold Coast at Optus Stadium, while skipper Luke Shuey and Liam Duggan are coming off short and long-term injuries, respectively.

Jack Darling will make his highly-anticipated return to the 22 after his vaccination saga, with Alex Witherden also coming back into the side after serving the one-week suspension he copped in the practice match against Fremantle.
