Jack Darling Biography

Tuesday, 5 June 2018
Jack Darling has avoided a long spell on the sidelines but will be out of action for between four-to-six weeks after suffering a hairline fracture and ligament damage to his ankle against St Kilda.
Saturday, 2 June 2018
West Coast is sweating on scans to discover the damage to star forward Jack Darling after he hurt his right ankle against St Kilda, interrupting his career-best run of form.

Darling suffered the injury in a marking contest late in the first quarter, landing on the boot of St Kilda defender Logan Austin.

Wednesday, 16 May 2018
Phil Davis will miss at least a week due to concussion.

Davis was knocked out during the third quarter of the Giants' loss to West Coast last week, when he was collected by Jack Darling's elbow in a marking contest.

"He had some headaches on Sunday and Monday, (and they were) minor yesterday," Giants coach Leon Cameron said.

"But with the concussion protocol, obviously if you get to Wednesday and you still have some symptoms that rules you out."

Saturday, 12 May 2018
Phil Davis is knocked out after being collected by an accidental elbow from Eagle Jack Darling when he courageously ran back into a marking contest.
Tuesday, 31 January 2017
Jack Darling signs a new three-year deal with West Coast that will keep him at the club until the end of 2020.

"Jack has already played 128 games and established himself as a quality AFL forward," Eagles general manager of football Craig Vozzo said.

"He is a dedicated professional and we believe he can take his game to yet another level while Tom was terrific in his first full season of senior football.

"We believe that he has a lot of upside in his game and we look forward to assisting him evolve in coming seasons."

Wednesday, 18 February 2015
West Coast coach Adam Simpson says Jack Darling has not trained at all this pre-season and is likely to miss West Coast's season opener against the Western Bulldogs.

"He hasn't really kicked a ball since round 23 last year. He's having a massively interrupted pre-season," Simpson said.

"I don't know how long it takes him once he's up and running to get his feel and his touch and game sense. That's an unknown.

"I think we're lucky in the sense that his skinfolds are 35. He's an elite athlete. But he just hasn't had a run at it."

Wednesday, 21 January 2015
Jack Darling has been cleared to ramp up his rehabilitation from a stress fracture in his foot.
Monday, 12 January 2015
After suffering a stress fracture in his foot in round 23 last year, Jack Darling's injury continues to plague his pre-season. He spent six weeks in a moon boot before Christmas and was only walking laps at training.

"He'll get a scan in the next couple of weeks to get the all clear to go to the next level," Eagles coach Adam Simpson said.

"We're just being really cautious. We want the bone to heal in the foot as best we can and you can only go by the scans."

Monday, 18 August 2014
Jack Darling signs what is believed to be a lucrative two-year deal with the Eagles.

"I am really confident we can build on what we have achieved this year," Darling said.

"There is no doubt that as a team we have improved and we are a young playing group that is looking to have a big impact on the competition."

Friday, 6 December 2013
Star trio Josh Kennedy, Jack Darling, and Matt Priddis extend contracts their contracts with West Coast.

"It is great to have three quality players and outstanding individuals extend their commitment to the club," Eagles' football operations manager Craig Vozzo said.

"We see all three players as very important to our plan of improving as quickly as possible.

"We hold them all in very high regard and are delighted they have extended their commitment to the club."

Sunday, 10 February 2013
After being restricted to just running laps during the season in 2012, Jack Darling hopes a solid pre-season will allow him to engage in some skills work during the season in 2013.

"I've really been getting some good leg-weight sessions in this pre-season, so I'm getting stronger there and that hasn't been a strength of mine in the past," Darling said.

"During the season I'm pretty light early in the week, not kicking the footy and just jogging laps.

"[The aim is] being able to train during the week, instead of just getting right for games, and feel comfortable doing that."

Thursday, 1 September 2011
Josh Kennedy, Jack Darling and Andrew Embley have all re-committed to West Coast on the eve of the 2011 finals.
Wednesday, 6 July 2011
West Coast coach John Worsfold says young forward Jack Darling could take the role of suspended big man Quinten Lynch up the ground.

"Jack Darling has shown that he can take marks, leading up the ground. I'm sure he can fill the role adequately if we decide to go that way," Worsfold said.

Tuesday, 3 May 2011
West Coast's Jack Darling is the round six NAB AFL Rising Star nominee, and his form suggests he is also the bargain of last year's draft after falling to pick 26.

"I really wasn't sure where I was going to go. It's just a number to me now and everyone's in the same pool at the moment. It doesn't matter if you go at one or 85, you've still got the opportunity to play. It didn't bother me at all," Darling said.

"I was prepared to move. But I guess it has made it pretty easy. My life hasn't changed that much. Staying at home has definitely helped me for a smooth transition into AFL football."

Friday, 19 November 2010
West Coast select forward Jack Darling with their priority pick No. 26 at the 2010 national draft.

Darling was named All-Australian centre half-forward in 2009 at the under-18 national championships but failed to impress this year while being involved in minor off-field issues.

"He's had a lot of pressure on him and he's still, in his WAFL footy, averaged 17 touches a game, which isn't bad for an 18-year-old kid, so it was interesting," West Coast's Trevor Woodhouse said.

"He's a super talent, it's really up to Jack now to show people that perhaps he was harshly dealt with in terms of his position, but that shouldn't bother him - he just needs to get on and play good footy."
