Hard nut, premiership star Manning reaches 100 with Falcons

Friday, August 18, 2017 - 10:57 AM - by Chris Pike

THERE is much more to West Perth premiership star Kody Manning than his reputation as the inspirational hard man of the WAFL even if that style of play that has likely stopped him reaching 100 games with the Falcons before this Saturday.

Manning remains the standout player in the WAFL who can inspire his team through his physicality and that's not to say he isn’t fair and doesn’t have a lot of other strings to his bow.

The 2013 premiership player simply plays in a style where he thrives on the physical contact and whether that means he lays a big bump, puts on a crunching tackle or bursts through a contest or a pack, he just goes about his football in a way that you rarely see in the modern day.

WAFL Round 22 teams and previews

Friday, August 18, 2017 - 10:18 AM

IT is the penultimate round of the 2017 WAFL season and the fight for finals positions couldn’t be hotter with Swan Districts, East Perth, West Perth and even Claremont facing must-win battles on Saturday.

With Subiaco guaranteed of the minor premiership and of South Fremantle finishing second with East Fremantle and Perth locked in a battle over the wooden spoon, the fight for positions in between remains fascinating.

That sets the stage for four potentially defining matches on Saturday beginning with Swan Districts playing Claremont at Steel Blue Oval. A win for Swans and they are guaranteed of playing finals while a loss leaves that in the air and keeps the Tigers slim hopes alive.

League Grand Final: Coastal Titans v Swan Districts 
2.30pm Leederville Oval

Over each round of the 2017 Mundella WAWFL season, two teams have deservedly thrust themselves into the spotlight as the unarguable benchmarks of the competition. With these two teams, we have two stories to tell. 

In the red corner, the Coastal Titans are the club that, since winning their first premiership in a fairy tale debut season in 2004, are synonymous with success. 2015 was the year when the club secured its seventh premiership - just another reason why they're often sitting within the realms of the top of the ladder. This year’s minor premiers reminded us all why they’re one of the best in the business, hitting the repeat button week after week on their red-hot form.
