TABtouch team: Semi-final The TABtouch team announcement for West Coast's semi-final against Greater Western Sydney

Experienced utility player Sharrod Wellingham will get the chance to rekindle his senior career after being named in the West Coast Eagles team to play in Saturday’s sudden death final against GWS at Spotless Stadium.

The inclusion of Wellingham at the expense of rookie Luke Partington is the only change to the team that won the nail-biting extra time elimination final against Port Adelaide last Saturday night.

Partington has played the last six games in succession, but makes way for veteran Wellingham, who has played just one of the last eight games.

His form at East Perth, however, was eye-catching before the Royals season closed at the end of the WAFL qualifying rounds and his capacity to fill a variety of roles probably gave him the edge at the selection table.

Partington was listed as an emergency with tall defender Will Schofield and midfielder Chris Masten.
