Eagles ruckman Lycett tipped to depart


SEN WA correspondent Tim Gossage believes there's more of a chance of West Coast ruckman Scott Lycett leaves the club than stays.

Lycett is out of contract at the end of the season and has been linked with a move to Port Adelaide.

The 25-year-old is a native South Australian and Gossage believes the Eagles have got a major fight on their hands if they’re to re-sign the in-demand big man.

“I reckon he is more of a chance of leaving then staying,” Gossage told SEN Afternoons.

“He probably will command a better quid if he stays because we know that Nic Naitanui’s going to miss the best part of next year.

“I think he’s drawn to being at home, I think he’s keen to maybe get back to South Australia and he doesn’t really want to talk about it.

“His value has certainly up and those clubs in Adelaide will be throwing fair coin at him too.

“He’s got to weigh a few things up. I know he is being well looked after here, but he’s sometimes been frustrated.

“I just think West Coast have got a fight on their hands to keep him.”

Lycett was recruited from SANFL outfit Port Adelaide and has played 70 games for the Eagles since making his debut in 2011.
