Final teams: West Coast v Essendon

Rough's recall, Fagan fires up at 'F' word Nat Edwards with the latest news

WEST Coast has locked in skipper Shannon Hurn, midfield star Elliot Yeo and emerging tall Oscar Allen for Thursday night's home clash with Essendon.

The Eagles and Bombers have named unchanged line-ups from their Wednesday selections, with Hurn (hamstring), Yeo (calf) and Allen (ankle) returning after missing the pre-bye 45-point loss to Sydney at the SCG.

Electric small forward Jarrod Cameron will debut for West Coast, with defender Jackson Nelson and Chris Masten also in among six changes.  

Josh Rotham, Tom Cole, Jake Waterman and Josh Smith have been omitted, with Willie RIoli and Nathan Vardy suspended.  

The Bombers' only change from their win over Hawthorn is Mitch Brown in for star forward Jake Stringer (ankle).

Essendon has won the past two clashes against West Coast, including a 28-point triumph in the corresponding fixture at Optus Stadium last year.

The Bombers (6-6) could temporarily climb into the eight with victory on Thursday night, while West Coast (8-4) can jump back into the top four.
