Lycett will have his shoulder assessed next week

West Coast Eagles ruckman Scott Lycett is out of Sunday’s Carlton Draught Derby due to a left-shoulder problem.

The 24-year old returned to the Eagles side for the first time in 2017 last week against Port Adelaide, but pulled up sore  from Sunday’s clash with the Power and it has not improved to a level that club medical staff are comfortable with Lycett taking the field against the Dockers.

It is the same shoulder Lycett had operated on in March.

As they have done all year, veteran Drew Petrie and makeshift ruckman Nathan Vardy will shoulder the ruck load on Sunday.

The Eagles have made four changes to the side that went down to the Power by 32 points with spearhead Josh Kennedy, Jackson Nelson, Chris Masten and Will Schofield coming in for Scott Lycett, Eric Mackenzie (hamstring), Malcolm Karpany (quad) and Sharrod Wellingham (omitted).

Jack Redden, Tom Cole and Wellingham will be the emergencies.
