PREMIERSHIP West Coast defender Lewis Jetta is the headline casualty of the Eagles' horror run of three consecutive losses.

The 200-game veteran has lost his place for Saturday's clash with Sydney, while Essendon's Tom Bellchambers and Richmond's Sydney Stack are among the big outs for this weekend. 

FULL TEAMS Check 'em out

Four-time All-Australian Jeremy McGovern and back-up ruckman Oscar Allen return for the Eagles, who have also omitted Tom Hickey. 

The Swans will enter without a recognised ruckman with Sam Naismith (ACL) ruled out for the season and Callum Sinclair to also miss with a knee injury. The ruck duties against Nic Naitanui and Allen will be left to rookie Hayden McLean or potentially Aliir Aliir.
