Top Eagle set for more surgery
Top Eagle set for more surgery

Doubts linger over Beau Waters availability for this AFL season with the West Coast vice captain requiring more surgery on a troublesome shoulder.

According to a News Ltd report, Waters again dislocated the joint this week, ruling him out of the early part of the 2014 campaign.

The latest setback could affect plans by West Coast to prepare Waters to replace long-time skipper Darren Glass as the head leader of the playing group.

Waters has endured a run of injuries to ankles, elbows and shoulders since he made his debut with the Eagles in 2004. The South Australian has been restricted to 120 AFL matches.

West Coast are also fighting to have ruckman Nic Naitanui and midfielder Sharrod Wellingham fit and ready for the opening round in March.
