West Coast name extended team for Josh Kennedy’s farewell game against Adelaide at Optus Stadium

Jackson Nelson and Zac Langdon are in line for Eagles recalls after both were named on an extended interchange for Josh Kennedy’s farewell game against Adelaide.

There will be at least three changes to the Eagles side who fell to the Suns last week, highlighted by the return of champion forward Kennedy for what will be the final game of his career.

Kennedy will return to the side after missing the loss to Gold Coast, while Connor West and Jack Petruccelle miss out through injury and Jai Culley is suspended.

Langdon has not played since West Coast’s round six loss to Port Adelaide and has battled an ankle injury for most of the season.

Meanwhile, Nelson has not featured since he celebrated his 100th game for the club against Geelong in June.

Hugh Dixon, who was last week’s medi-sub, has been named on the extended interchange, as have Samo Petrevksi-Seton, Xavier O’Neill, Luke Foley and Greg Clark.

After missing last week’s game with an ankle injury, young gun Rhett Bazzo is also a chance to return for West Coast.

Jake Waterman, who sported strapping on his right knee and jogged laps with injured trio Petruccelle, Elliot Yeo and Tom Cole at training today, has been named on the wing.
