Eagles star Josh Kennedy launches Ocean Ride for Multiple Sclerosis

WEST Coast key forward Josh Kennedy says the Eagles are ready to show a “united front” when they face reigning premiers Hawthorn in Friday’s crucial home qualifying final.

And the 2015 Coleman medallist said West Coast’s goalscoring firepower was a threat right across the forward line.

“We’re not relying on one guy, if one guy gets shut-out then someone will bob up and have a chance of kicking some goals,” the spearhead said at the launch of the Ocean Ride for MS event on Wednesday.


“We’re not relying on one player, and inside forward 50 we have a lot of players like Crippa (Jamie Cripps), Lekka (Mark LeCras), and Josh Hill,” he said.

“Our midfield this year have really stepped it up and have been able to get some important balls, which makes our lives a lot easier in the forward.”

He said West Coast was now “on the same page” under second season coach Adam Simpson.

“He’s on the same page as us and we’re on the same page as he is,” Kennedy said.

“We’re a united front as a group, and we’re all in it together.

“We’ve backed his game plan and he’s believed in us.”

Kennedy was promoting the Ocean Ride for MS, which will be held on Sunday, October 18.

It begins in Fremantle and ends in Hillarys and features cycling challenges of 30km, 50km, 70km and 90km.

Multiple Sclerosis Society of WA chief executive officer Marcus Stafford said MS the most common neurological condition for young men in WA.

The project has so far raised more than $32,000 of its $350,000 target.

Last year’s ride raised more than $440,000 for the MS Society and had 2000 participants, according to Kennedy.

But the Eagles’ forward won’t be able to ride this year as he’ll be attending fellow Eagle Will Schofield’s wedding in Hawaii.

Kennedy, who joined the society four years ago, said it had been a rewarding experience.

“I had always wanted to get involved with a charity, but I didn’t know who or where or what,” he said.

“I’ve learned a lot along the way and I’ve met some terrific people.”
