Triple M's Damian Barrett believes West Coast can't win the flag without Nic Naitanui, telling Triple M's Rush Hour that a second ACL injury is "premiership-ending".
DAMO EXPLAINS WHY:
Barrett joined Triple M's Rush Hour with JB & Billy for Damo's Recovery Session, starting with the biggest story: Naitanui's knee.
The 28-year-old will undergo a traditional knee reconstruction on his right knee, which will see him miss the rest of the season.
Barrett believes the injury will put a line through West Coast's premiership aspirations.
"It's the impact and effect and presence he has on that ground for that team," he explained.
"While other people are saying Scott Lycett will replace him - well, not so much replace him but stand up - I feel it's premiership-ending."
