West Coast coach Adam Simpson says ruckman Nic Naitanui has lost around 3kg and managed to increase his trademark big leap during his time spent on the AFL sidelines.

Naitanui has missed the past six games after undergoing surgery to relieve Achilles tendon pain, but he'll return in Sunday's western derby against Fremantle at Domain Stadium.

Simpson says Naitanui's leap is bigger than before, but the team can't rely on him to be their saviour.
