Experienced West Coast Eagles defender Jess Sedunary is expected to spend some time on the sidelines after sustaining a nasty back injury in Sunday’s four-point win over Essendon.

Sedunary went back with the flight of the ball in the first quarter, receiving significant contact in the contest from the knee of Essendon’s Paige Scott, and was carried from the ground by medical staff.

“Jess took a pretty heavy knock in the first quarter to her back,” AFLW Head of High Performance Wes Salisbury said.

“Unfortunately, she was unable to return to the field and took no further part.

“She’s come back for scans now that we’re home, and we will get a better idea on her management plan from there.”


Fellow Eagles defender Beth Schilling suffered a knock to her knee in the first quarter but managed to play out the remainder of the game.

“Beth had a knee concern, again in the first quarter,” Salisbury said.

“She was able to play out the game with some strapping, but as a precaution we have sent her for a scan also and will know more later in the week.”

Zoe Wakfer missed Sunday’s game at Windy Hill with a finger injury and is on track to be available for selection to face the Bulldogs this weekend.

“Zoe is tracking really well with her finger rehab,” Salisbury said.

“She will have a splint made up and if she can get through full training on Wednesday, will be available for selection.”
