West Coast will unleash it's number one draft pick Jarrod Brander on Friday night.
The 19-year-old is the Eagles seventh debutant this season will be the second highest behind eight back in 2010.
Eagles coach Adam Simpson said it was exciting for the club.
“These guys have earned their spot and they have played with real enthusiasm when they have come in. Can’t wait to see him play." Simpson said.
‘With the loss of Jack (Darling), we are looking for a forward to replace and play that role. It was a toss up between him and a couple of other guys. Fraser McInnes, we know what he can deliver. We just thought we would give the kid a go.”
Speedster Liam Ryan also travelled to Sydney for the clash but it is unknown whether he will make his return from injury.
It's a massive challenge for West Coast who have not won at the SCG since 1999.
