VICE- captain Luke Shuey has declared West Coast good enough not to bottom out next year regardless of whether they scrape into this year’s finals series. An ageing Eagles line-up has suffered a gradual on-field decline since losing the 2015 AFL grand final to Hawthorn.

Shuey ’s manager Nick Gieschen would not be drawn on the terms of the deal, but said the 27-year-old Victorian was being paid as a “premium midfielder in the AFL ”. Shuey said Scott Lycett would give the under-pressure Eagles ’ ruck division a big chop-out when he returned.

Shuey's calmness under pressure has drawn widespread praise.

The 27-year-old even managed to have a chuckle to himself once the final siren of extra time sounded as he lined up for goal.

Shuey joined Kennedy as a vice-captain at the start of this year, with 30-year-old Hurn now in his third season as skipper.

Kennedy said Shuey will be the perfect candidate to take over from Hurn whenever the hard-nosed defender decides to relinquish the role.

There will be outcry if West Coast midfielder Luke Shuey escapes suspension over his physical hit on Geelong star Patrick Dangerfield, according to AFL great Garry Lyon. Geelong captain Joel Selwood was also reported for striking Eagles veteran Sam Mitchell in what proved a heated encounter.

"Shuey has been a terrific footballer for this club. He's a terrific vice-captain.

"And I've got no doubt he'll probably come on and captain our footy club for many more years."

Kennedy booted two goals in extra time to help West Coast secure victory.

But he managed just one goal in regular time, and later conceded he was beaten on the night.

Kennedy managed just one goal in the final-round win against Adelaide, when the Eagles racked up 100 points.

His past two games have been in stark contrast to the previous six, where he racked up 30 goals.

The two-time Coleman medallist said it was a good sign that West Coast were winning games even when he was quiet.

"I don't think I played that well on the weekend. I was out of it a lot of the game," Kennedy said.

"But it was great to see guys like Jack (Darling) step up. And big Drew Petrie was unbelievable. He really set us up.

"Having a lot more wider spread of players, is what you want, especially coming to this time of the year."

Kennedy said he was right in the thick of the team celebrations immediately after Shuey kicked the goal.

"I threw a few elbows to try to get towards Luke," Kennedy joked.

"I got right in the middle, and was just giving him a big hug. I didn't want to let him go. It was a great end to the game."

Kochie and I are on the same page .
Port Adelaide coach Ken Hinkley is adamant he and chairman David Koch are on the same page, after signing a three-year contract extension with the club. Hinkley was linked with a move to the Gold Coast Suns amid speculation he had fallen out with Koch over comments the Power chairman made after their finals exit to West Coast.Koch challenged the selection policies of the coach and the players' commitment at a supporters' function after the Eagles scored a shock win with a goal after the siren in extra time.
