Kerr, Naitanui ruled out for West Coast

West Coast have suffered a cruel double blow ahead of Sunday's AFL match against St Kilda with star onballer Daniel Kerr and emerging ruckman Nic Naitanui ruled out.

Kerr missed last week's loss to Melbourne through general soreness but looked to have shaken off any injury concerns at training on Tuesday.

The 26-year-old was named in the Eagles' squad but was withdrawn on Friday.

Naitanui, who made a name for himself with a match-winning three-goal haul against Hawthorn a fortnight ago, has also been ruled out.

The 19-year-old copped a battering from Demons ruckman Mark Jamar last week and was restricted to light duties at training.

Premiership forward Ashley Hansen, who booted five goals in the WAFL last week, and young midfielder Tom Swift have been added to the 25-man squad.

The loss of Naitanui will be offset by the return of four-times All-Australian Dean Cox, who missed the past two matches with a niggling groin complaint.
