Oscar Allen Biography

Friday, 20 May 2022
West Coast will add key forward Oscar Allen and midfielder Luke Edwards to its inactive list, ending the season for both and freeing up list spots in preparation for the NAB AFL Mid-Season Rookie Draft.

Allen, who has not played this season, has endured a frustrating battle with a stress-related foot injury that first flared in February, with the young star in and out of a moon boot since.

Edwards, meanwhile, endured osteitis pubis in the pre-season and has been backed off at training again due to discomfort after playing three games early in his second season.

Oscar Allen says Tom Hickey has been a great mentor to him as he adapts to life as the Eagles' back-up ruck.

"He's been an AFL ruckman for over 100 games and he has a lot of insight as to the best way to use your body," Allen said.

"He understands what other rucks want to get out of the stoppage against me and he's been really good prepping me each week and reviewing games with me as well."

Oscar Allen is rewarded with the round 21 AFL Rising Star nomination after booting three goals against Adelaide.

The 20-year-old Eagle has so far made his name as a third tall forward option and mobile back-up ruckman after stints in defence, and is hoping his flexibility will help him keep his spot in the strong Eagles' line-up as they press their claims for back-to-back flags.

"I just want to help the team in any way I can, and in whatever role I'm asked to play. That's always been my mindset," Allen said.

"The more roles I can play the better chance I have. Being exposed to different positions has been a good thing for my development because it's allowed me to learn from a number of senior key position players in our side."

Tuesday, 9 April 2019
Oscar Allen signs a two-year contract extension with West Coast to remain at the club until the end of 2022.

"I love the club and I love the people at the club. They've been so welcoming of me in my first 18 months at the club and I couldn't wait to extend," Allen said.

"As a young kid, I just want to focus on playing the best footy I can and helping the club in any way possible, so to get this done was a big milestone for me.

"Now I can just try to play some good footy and help the team any way I can."

Sunday, 8 July 2018
Oscar Allen makes his AFL debut for West Coast at Perth Stadium with 7 disposals (4 kicks and 3 handballs), 2 marks and 3 tackles in a 11-point win over GWS.
Thursday, 26 April 2018
Oscar Allen extends his two-year draft contract with West Coast by a year to remain at the club until the end of 2020.

Allen arrived at the club with a tibia stress fracture but has been lauded for his appetite for hard work during rehabilitation, and recently made his comeback in East Perth's victory over Perth.

"Itís been a pretty hard pre-season for me being in rehab for most of it, but the club has been incredibly supportive and theyíve always had my back," Allen said.

"I thought thatís the kind of culture (I admire) and Iíd love to stay with a football club that supported players like that."

Friday, 2 February 2018
Oscar Allen is hopeful of being fully fit for the start of the season after being grounded for most of the pre-season with a tibia stress fracture.

"I've never had any serious injuries until this, so it's been a bit of a learning curve trying to deal with not being out on the track as much as I would like to be," Allen said.

"But it's also a real character-building thing, so I think it can be a positive for me in the future."

Saturday, 25 November 2017
Oscar Allen feared his hopes of a West Coast career had been dashed when he was overlooked by the Eagles with their first pick in the national draft.

But the Eagles couldn't believe their luck when the athletic forward was still available in the second round and swooped with pick No.21.

"It was so up in the air, and just before the draft everyone was saying that tall forwards always tend to slide down the order a bit," Allen said.

"When they didn't pick me, I was almost resigned to the fact that I wouldn't make it around to the Eagles' second pick, which I was fine with, but I'm stoked."
