History continues

History will be carried forward into the 2013 season when Jacob Brennan moves into the No.14 guernsey worn by his father, Michael, in the first nine seasons of West Coast Eagles’ existence.

Jacob Brennan, who this season won the rookie of the year award wearing No.34, has jumped at the opportunity to continue a family tradition by wearing the number made famous by his dual premiership-winning dad.

Michael Brennan was part of the club’s inaugural squad and retired in 1995 as the club’s game record holder (179).

Jacob, two years ago, became the first genuine father-son selection and will step into No.14 which became vacant when Koby Stevens decided to switch to the Western Bulldogs during the trade period in October.

While Brennan has moved to a new number, the other interesting decision has been that of Collingwood recruit Sharrod Wellingham to wear No.12. He could have worn the same number that he had at Collingwood (21) given the man who wore that jumper for the previous decade, Quinten Lynch, had switched camps.

St Kilda recruit Jamie Cripps will slip into No.15, Adam Carter will wear No.19, Brant Colledge will make No.21 his own, while Callum Sinclair, secured today through the rookie draft, will don No.22 and Mark Hutchings will assume No.34.

Melbourne recruits Cale Morton and Jamie Bennell will wear numbers 40 and 44 respectively.
