Tim Kelly removed from West Coast Eagles side with illness ahead of clash with Geelong Cats

Former Geelong player Tim Kelly has been pulled from the West Coast Eagles team and will not face his old side.

The midfielder was a late out from the team with illness and has been replaced by Jackson Nelson.

Greg Clark is the medical substitute.

Kelly has led the way in midfield for much of this season and has not missed a game since round four.

He had 24 disposals and three clearances in the defeat to Adelaide before the club’s bye.

Nelson was originally listed as one of five players omitted from the Eagles team.

Premiership hero Dom Sheed returns from injury for the first time in 10 months, while Jeremy McGovern, Willie Rioli and Elliot Yeo also return alongside Jamaine Jones and Jack Petrucelle.

First-year defender Rhett Bazzo has been handed a debut.
