West Coast Eagles receive welcome news as round one opponents North Melbourne suffer double injury blow

West Coast received a second dose of welcome news on Monday, with two North Melbourne stars facing an uphill battle to be ready for their round one encounter.

After leading forward Jack Darling put in an impressive workout on his injured ankle in the morning, it was revealed Kangaroos bull Cameron Zurhaar was unlikely to be fit in time for the season start, with scans revealing a strain in his calf.

The injury was suffered during last weekend’s practice match against the Western Bulldogs, which ended in a 58-point defeat. Zurhaar didn’t return to the field after halftime.

The club have not but a line through the forward, who has finished in the top two of the club’s goalkicking the past four years, but he is racing the clock with just over a week to go before the season gets underway.
