The powerful Western Australian was traded to the West Coast in 2013 for their 28th round pick and was played all-over the shop before settling into the middle of the pitch to dominate in the centre of the park using his size to tackle and bully opposition attackers, recording a whopping 16 tackles against North Melbourne in 2019, arguably his best season in amber and blue.
He earned his second All-Australian blazer that year, carrying the West Coast Midfield into the 2019 finals, and just missed out to Luke Shuey on his third best and fairest medal that season. But the Premiership player had a torrid 2020 managing just 10 games, struggling to find his form before he was sidelined with a recurring osteitis pubis injury, ruling him out for the rest of the season.
Despite a tough 2020, Yeo’s career statistics are nothing but impressive, after notching 138 appearances for the West Coast over the space of seven years, Yeo has stacked up an impressive 653 marks, 2822 disposals, and a huge 682 tackles. He was a massive miss in 2020 and hopefully can get back to his tackling self in 2021 and steer the Eagles midfield back into next year’s finals.
