“The West Coast Eagles are considering a surprise decision regarding their selection of Harley Reid.”

“Despite Harley Reid’s impressive performance, the West Coast Eagles are expected to manage the teenage star and keep him out of Round 7, even though he’s the No. 1 draft pick.”

“Despite Harley Reid’s outstanding performances in the past two games, including a Rising Star nomination in Round 6, the West Coast Eagles have decided to rest the teenage sensation for Round 7. Reid’s contributions have been instrumental in the Eagles’ recent victories, but the club is reportedly choosing to manage his workload despite his stellar form.”

“The West Coast Eagles are entering Sunday’s game against the Suns with a boost in confidence, but they’ll have to do it without their rising star, Harley Reid. As reported by 9 News, the team has decided to rest Reid after his first six matches, as they aim to manage the 19-year-old’s workload carefully early in his AFL career.”

“The unexpected decision to rest Harley Reid comes as the West Coast Eagles prepare for the potential return of defender Tom Barrass, who is set to appeal his one-game suspension for a dangerous tackle on Fremantle forward Michael Walters in Round 6. Barrass will face the AFL Tribunal on Wednesday at 1:00 pm (AEST), hoping to be cleared for Sunday’s match against the Gold Coast Suns at Carrara.

In Reid’s absence, coach Adam Simpson might consider promoting veteran midfielder Dom Sheed to a starting role. Sheed, a premiership player, was used as a tactical substitute during the Eagles’ recent win against the Dockers.”

“Forward Liam Ryan might make a return to the West Coast Eagles lineup after playing in the WAFL for the past two weeks following his recovery from a serious hamstring injury.

Additionally, trio Andrew Gaff, Harry Edwards, and Luke Edwards are on standby for selection. Luke Edwards is expected to exit concussion protocols, making him eligible to play this weekend.

The West Coast Eagles will travel to People First Stadium to face the Gold Coast Suns at 1:00 pm (AEST) on Sunday, hoping to extend their winning streak to three matches.”
