Oscar Allen not feeling pressure of replacing Josh Kennedy in West Coast Eagles’ forward line

West Coast forward Oscar Allen has played down the added responsibility on his shoulders as he prepares to spearhead the Eagles’ new forward-line era after the retirement of Josh Kennedy.

Allen, 23, is set to play his first AFL game in 575 days when he runs out against North Melbourne at Marvel Stadium on Saturday.

After missing all of last season with a foot injury, there is hope from the Eagles’ faithful that Allen will be their next star forward but he said the expectation and pressure levels haven’t changed since he entered the club as a teenager in 2017.

“There’s always responsibilities and pressures, I think it just changes so when you get to the club you’ve got the pressure to play and hopefully make a career out of it,” Allen said.
