Eagles hopeful for key duo
West Coast midfielder Matt Priddis says the Eagles are only ‘hoping’ Nic Naitanui and Jamie Cripps will play this Sunday against the Western Bulldogs.
Nic Naitanui has missed the past fortnight due to the passing of his mum, while Jamie Cripps injured his jaw after an elbow from Alex Silvagni.
Mark Lecras is also in line to return after serving a one week suspension.
The reigning Brownlow medallist also said the Eagles are way of a ‘fantastic’ Bulldogs team in the top-four that beat them in round one.
