Drew Petrie aims after Eagles AFL lifeline

Discarded North Melbourne forward Drew Petrie is adamant his body can handle another AFL season, saying he hasn’t arrived at West Coast to be merely a spectator.

Petrie played 316 games and booted 428 goals before being axed by the Kangaroos at the end of last season.

The Eagles selected the 34-year-old in Monday’s rookie draft, and Petrie believed he could play a vital role in the ruck and up forward in the absence of injured star Nic Naitanui (knee).
