Deluca can't do more for another AFL chance

Saturday, May 18, 2019 - 8:25 AM - by Chris Pike

HE is now a four-time WAFL premiership player, a Simpson Medallist and a proven consistently outstanding performer so Josh Deluca can't do any more to deserve another AFL chance but he is just focusing on continuing to ply his trade with the undefeated Subiaco.

Deluca's journey began as a teenager when he was a lively small forward in Subiaco's 2014 premiership triumph which saw him land on Fremantle's AFL list and led to him playing in the 2016 and 2017 WAFL premierships at Peel Thunder.

He would play four AFL games for Fremantle in 2017 but during his three years at the Dockers, he turned himself from that dangerous small forward into a tough and consistent on-baller who was equally adept at winning the ball in close and getting out in space and being damaging.

Premiership hunger driving on 150-gamer Wilson

Saturday, May 18, 2019 - 8:11 AM - by Chris Pike

HAVING been remarkably close to premiership glory in five of the past six seasons, South Fremantle defender Blayne Wilson is craving that ultimate success as he reaches 150 WAFL games this Saturday against Subiaco.

Wilson was always seen as an exciting talent when rising through the ranks at Peel Thunder from Halls Head. He ended up spending four years listed at West Coast and did play nine AFL games, but a combination of untimely injuries and not quite enough opportunities meant it didn’t quite work out.

But whether it was during 29 games in his formative years in the WAFL at Peel Thunder, in his 36 appearances including two Grand Finals at East Perth or now in 84 matches with South Fremantle, Wilson has always been an elite defender in the competition.

ROUND 3 of the inaugural Optus WAFL Women's Premiership Season takes place on Sunday after with two games at 2pm with East Fremantle facing Swan Districts, and Claremont taking on Peel Thunder.

It has been an exciting opening to the first ever season of the new WAFLW competition which has been created in 2019 on the back of the momentum from the AFLW national competition and the work to break the ground done in recent years by the WA Women's Football League.

Subiaco has started the WAFLW season impressively winning their opening two matches and now the Lions will have the Round 3 bye leaving the other four teams to battle it out to build some momentum.

2019 WA AFLW 18s squad announced

Wednesday, May 15, 2019 - 9:58 AM

The 2019 WA AFLW 18s squad has been announced ahead of the NAB AFLW National 18s Championships in June and July this year. This year’s squad includes 36 players between 17 and 19 years of age.

WA State Talent Manager – Female Programs Clint Degebrodt congratulated all of the players on their selection and said he was excited with the depth of talented players within WA’s 18s squad this year.

“This is an exciting group. The way the players have presented and engaged indicates the progress of the development pathway in WA with a highly skilled, knowledgeable group rich in character,” he said.
 
“Players are taking themselves seriously as athletes due to the opportunities that the AFLW and the WAFLW present and have accepted the challenge of becoming the best player they can be.”
 
“The engagement of Fremantle and West Coast with this squad has provided players with a clear understanding of the standards required.”
 
The State 18s schedule includes a trial game against the WAFLW All-Stars in an exhibition match ahead of the AFLW National 18s Carnival.
 
Coach Beau McDonald will lead the 18s for the first time, bringing more than 100 games of AFL experience as a player and a coach to the group.

State Game Match Report – SANFL pips WAFL at Optus

Sunday, May 12, 2019 - 2:39 PM - by Chris Pike

THE KIA WAFL State Team has just fallen short of its piece of history with the SANFL producing a tremendous second half kicking eight of the last 12 goals to win the 2019 State Game by seven points at Optus Stadium.

It proved a tremendous showcase of State football between the two leading competitions in the country with South Australia managing to bring an end to Western Australia's string of winning six consecutive State matches despite being 22 points down in the first half.

On the back of having won the past six State Games it had contested including last year's drought breaking result over the SANFL at Adelaide Oval, the WAFL started strongly at Optus Stadium on Sunday.

Round 2 Optus WAFLW Preview

Saturday, May 11, 2019 - 11:19 AM - by Chris Pike

ROUND 2 of the inaugural Optus WAFLW Premiership Season takes place this Sunday afternoon with a Grand Final rematch between Subiaco and East Fremantle with Swan Districts also taking on Claremont.

The new WAFL Women's competition for 2019 started with a bang last Sunday with wins for East Fremantle over Peel Thunder, and for Subiaco against Swan Districts.

It's the first season of the ground breaking competition featuring five clubs and now the action continues with the two games this Sunday.

Horsley out to continue to build on WAFL legacy

Friday, May 10, 2019 - 5:30 PM - by Chris Pike

NOT only has Kyal Horsley enjoyed tremendous success at Subiaco since returning from the Gold Coast Suns, but he's been a key part of the WAFL's State Game dominance which he hopes continues against the SANFL at Optus Stadium on Sunday.

Horsley returned to captain Subiaco in 2014 on the back of spending the previous two years in the AFL system at the Gold Coast Suns where he did play 13 games despite rupturing his ACL and requiring a knee reconstruction.

But his return to Subiaco where he already was a premiership player from 2008 has been remarkable starting with that 2014 season where he captained the Lions to the flag.

Friday, May 10, 2019 - 2:05 PM - by Elliot Raiter

The Kia WAFL State Team and West End SANFL State Team play for the Haydn Bunton Jnr. Cup in the 95th game between the two States on May 12.

Western Australia will be aiming to extend its winning run in State Games to an historic seventh straight victory, while also increasing its head-to-head lead against South Australia, which currently stands at 48-46.

Last year, WA defeated SA in Adelaide for the first time since 1994, recording a 15.12 (102) to 11.10 (76) victory.

This year will be the first time a senior State Game has been played at Optus Stadium and the second time as a curtain-raiser to an AFL game.

WA is coached by Michael Broadbridge for a third year and the SA by former AFL player Josh Carr.

Broadbridge wants more history for WAFL

Thursday, May 9, 2019 - 7:46 PM - by Chris Pike

THE WAFL has proven the dominant figure in State Games for the past six years and West Australian coach Michael Broadbridge hopes the KIA WAFL State Team can create further history on Sunday against the SANFL at Optus Stadium.

The KIA WAFL State Team has won their past six State matches and along that six-game winning streak there has been historic road victories against the VFL in Melbourne and the SANFL in Adelaide.

Since a loss at Adelaide Oval to South Australia in 2012, the WAFL has defeated Victoria in Northam, the NEAFL in Sydney, the SANFL at Lathlain Park, Tasmania at Steel Blue Oval and then over the past two years, the wins over Victoria in Melbourne and South Australia in Adelaide.
