The West Coast Eagles visited Sir John of God Bunbury Hospital yesterday as part of their regional community program.

Captain Luke Shuey, ruckman Tom Hickey and second year rookie Harry Edwards spoke with triple-bypass surgery patient Bill Fensome about the pre-season and some of their new teammates.

“I’ve been a supporter since their inception so it’s very exciting,” he said.

“I think they’ve recruited well and we can challenge for the premiership again this year.”

Shuey said he would sit out today’s training session in Dunsborough due to a mild calf complaint.

“We had a bit of a longer break this year so I’m feeling fresh,” he said.

“We have a healthy competition for midfield spots this year so I’m looking forward to be back out there.”

The Eagles stopped by Carey Park Primary School conducting a coaching clinic with students on their way to Dunsborough for a training camp.
