AFL premiership captain Shannon Hurn is unlikely to return against Geelong on Saturday, when West Coast will seek to extend their status as Jeremy Cameron’s bogey side.
Hurn is “more unlikely than likely” to make the trip to Geelong because of his calf injury, according to Eagles coach Adam Simpson.
Simpson also flagged that star forward Josh Kennedy may potentially need a rest after failing to train on Wednesday.
“I think he’s still available … we’ll see how he runs and pulls up,” Simpson said.
“It’s just whether we roll him out there or we freshen him up.”
West Coast, whose injury list is headed by Luke Shuey and Elliot Yeo, will be desperate for the veterans to take part in the crunch clash between sides with 3-2 records.
