Jetta not offered Eagles contract

Eagles premiership player Lewis Jetta has been delisted by the club after 75 games across five seasons.

The 31 year old began his career at the Sydney Swans, playing 127 games including the club's 2012 premiership side before requesting a trade home at the end of the 2015 season, having been initially recruited from Swan Districts in the WAFL with pick 14 in the 2009 AFL Draft.

Jetta played only six games in 2020, only two after round four as he fell out of favour with the Eagles match committee, youngsters Jackson Nelson and Josh Rotham winning more opportunities at senior level.

“It is always a very difficult time of the year that has been made more complex this year due to the uncertainties around AFL list sizes etc. Unfortunately we are not in a position to offer Lewis an opportunity beyond this year,” West Coast Eagles General Manager of Football Craig Vozzo said.
