The West Coast Eagles will go into Sunday’s game against Gold Coast without classy forward Imahra Cameron, who suffered a lower leg sprain in the round one RAC Derby against Fremantle.

Senior coach Michael Prior – alongside the match committee – decided to err on the side of caution this week and rest Cameron for the round two clash at the Whitten Oval in Melbourne's west.

This opens a door for South Australian defender, Lauren Gauci, to play in her first match of the 2022 season, alongside fellow Adeladian Amber Ward.

Meanwhile, round one debutants Charlie Thomas, Aimee Schmidt and Evie Gooch will don the blue and gold for another match after solid performances against Fremantle last Saturday.
