Hurn to step aside as Eagles captain
Eagles premiership defender Shannon Hurn has stepped down at West Coast Eagles captain.
Hurn who had been the leader of the group for five-years said it wasn't just about 2020 but about setting the club up for the next four-five seasons.
“There have been on-going conversations with the club for the past couple of years and this just feels like the right time to relinquish my role as captain,” the straight-shooting Hurn said.
“I will still lead in the same way that I always have, I am committed to helping my teammates be better players and to build towards our next premiership. That doesn’t change.
The club will now work towards a process of appointing a new captain to be ratified by the board.
