West Coast Eagles chairman Russell Gibbs backs Adam Simpson but demands progress

West Coast chairman Russell Gibbs reiterated his support for Adam Simpson but said the AFL club would not tolerate treading water next year.

The Eagles have fallen headlong into rebuilding mode after a horror 1-7 start to a 2022 campaign that has been littered with a series of injuries and COVID-19 issues.

Off-field indiscretions also hurt the lowest-ranked club, with seven players fined for breaching team guidelines by frequenting a nightclub.

Simpson, who led West Coast to the premiership in 2018, has the public backing of the club’s board to lead the rebuild.
