East Perth could have as many as 17 West Coast-listed players to pick from for its Round 17 clash with Peel Thunder at Leedervile Oval tomorrow.

Saturday's biggest story will centre around the return of exciting first-year Eagle Jake Waterman, who will take the field for the first time since representing the club during its opening JLT Series game against Greater Western Sydney in Narrandera on February 18.

Waterman was diagnosed with a stress-related foot injury in March and has not been able to play any game time since.

He applied himself dilligently to a demanding rehabilitation program, finally come out the other side and will likely represent the Royals' reserves side on managed minutes.

Fellow 2016 draftee Tarir Bayok will also resume after battling a niggling hamstring for several weeks.

West Coast will confirm which three players listed below will be required for senior football at 2.30pm this afternoon.

It is yet to be determined which of the following players will play league or reserves football tomorrow.
