WEST Coast has hit "unprecedented times" with coach Adam Simpson entering the AFL health and safety protocols and only 22 players available for Saturday night's clash with the Brisbane lions.

The Eagles confirmed on Thursday morning that Simpson would miss the game, while revealing eight staff and players are currently in protocols, including round seven debutant Greg Clark.

On Wednesday afternoon the club had confirmed its WAFL side had been forced to have its game against East Fremantle on Saturday postponed due to a lack of availability, unable to meet the minimum requirement of three AFL-listed players.

The long list of absentees is the latest setback in a nightmare 2022 for West Coast who have lost a swathe of players to injuries and protocols throughout the season, leaving them last with a 1-6 record.

West Coast Football Manager Gavin Bell said: "As it stands we have 22 available AFL-listed players with the remainder either injured or in AFL Health and Safety Protocols. With Adam also being unable to coach this weekend, it is clearly unprecedented times.

"We have been working hard with the players on COVID Contingency List and it is likely several of them will be a part of the travelling party.

"Our club would again like to thank and acknowledge the understanding of the WAFL competition and the clubs whose players will help us take the field against the Lions. The WAFL clubs and players have been remarkably supportive through this challenging period.

"While our club has hit hard in terms of availability, we will roll up our sleeves and get on with the task of doing our absolute best against one of the competition’s leading contenders."

Lions $1.02
Eagles $15.00

If Mitch Georgiades fails to come up for tomorrow night Port could debut Ollie Lord taken at pick 49 in the 2020 draft. Lord is the grandson of Geelong’s 1962 Brownlow medallist and 1963 premiership star, Alistair Lord.

My Port mates know full well I'm a massive wrap for this kid, he's 197cm and 90kg with a rump/core suggesting he's going to fill out to the 100kg mark without too much of a problem. If he does debut I think it's ahead of time but I can't wait to see what this kid can do, I claimed him as mine 18 months ago and haven't jumped off*.
