West Coast Eagles were called “fat” by former AFL recruiter Matt Randell after disastrous 2022 season

West Coast was dubbed “fat” and the most unsuitable team in the AFL by former recruiter Matt Rendell.

The Eagles finished 17th this season with two wins in a disastrous year for coach Adam Simpson grappling with COVID-19 and injuries to many of his stars.

Rendell, who has held recruiting and assistant coaching roles at Adelaide and St Kilda, said West Coast had been the least fit club in the AFL for the past two years.

“Some of them are really fat, they carry pounds,” Rendell told Trade Radio.
