West Coast ruckman Nic Naitanui has revealed he was nursing a broken nose when he kicked the match-winning goal against GWS last week.

Naitanui suffered the broken nose in a ruck contest with Shane Mumford, before kicking the winning goal with just seconds remaining on the clock.

The win has kept West Coast's top-four hopes alive, but they face another huge challenge in Friday night's clash with Hawthorn at Domain Stadium.
