"I can't rule anything out on Jack," Simpson said.

"I'm worried, but I always worry."

"I'm really pleased that we took the harder option and dug in and played for our footy club."

West Coast entered the match without star midfielder Luke Shuey, who was due to return from a hamstring injury but was withdrawn on Saturday morning.
