West Coast Eagles star Elliott Yor’s return to the AFL could be further delayed after being involved in an ugly striking incident while playing in the WAFL.
Yo and 2018 Premiership teammate Dom Sheed played against Swan District in the West Coast WAFL squad as the pair sought to build their fitness level after a long AFL absence.
The incident happened towards the end of the match when Yeo pulled out his leg in a marking contest by Swan Districts player Aidan Clarke.

When he and Clark both crashed on the turf, Yeo hit Clark, who was behind him after the marking competition, and the 28-year-old was reported for his actions.
“Elliott Yeo was there, a bit warmed up. He’s not too happy about it,” said the commentator covering the WAFL match.
“There’s a little bit of an old suffocation, good luck please me.”
Yeo’s clash with Clarke resulted in a fracture in the last minute of the match, with the two-time All-Australian tearing his jersey in half and leaving the field.
The incident continues which was a terrible season for Yeo, who has played only two AFL matches this season.
If he gets a one-match suspension, he could serve at the WAFL level this week due to the Eagles’ upcoming AFL exit in 13 rounds. Yeo will then have to return to Friday night’s clash with Ascendon in Round 14.
