Young Eagle taken from Dees clash on a stretcher

WEST Coast forward Daniel Venables has been stretchered off in the second quarter of the Eagles’ Friday night clash with Melbourne at Optus Stadium.

Venables ran towards a marking contest and copped an accidental knock to his head from Dees forward Tim Smith’s right hip.

He lay motionless on the turf before being taken off.

Venable’s teammate Tom Hickey limped off just minutes later with an ankle injury. The ruckman was a late inclusion, replacing Will Schofield in West Coast’s selected side.

More to come.
