Karratha star Zac Langdon was caught up in the West Coast Eagles COVID crisis last week, as the club scrambled to field a side after a dozen fresh cases emerged on Friday. The forward was one of 12 Eagles who missed Sunday’s 15-point loss to North Melbourne and had to be replaced by a number of WAFL players from their COVID contingency list. The Eagles confirmed Langdon, as well as Josh Kennedy, Nic Naitanui, Tom Barrass, and Jack Redden, had entered the league’s health and safety protocols when their initial team was released on Thursday. The former Dampier Shark managed 12 disposals and a goal in the Eagles’ 27-point loss to the Gold Coast in round one. The 26-year-old debuted for West Coast in round one last year after spending three seasons at Greater Western Sydney, where he played 31 games. Langdon was traded to the Eagles at the end of the Giants’ 2020 campaign and was in 17 matches last year — one as the unused medical sub.
