WAFL Round 22 match reports

Sunday, August 20, 2017 - 9:17 AM - by Chris Pike

ROUND 22 of the 2017 WAFL season could hardly have produced any more fascinating results setting up an exciting last round with Swan Districts, East Perth, West Perth and Claremont all fighting over the last two finals places.

It was an incredible day of WAFL football in the penultimate round of the season with Claremont keeping its season alive and Claremont doing the same while Peel Thunder guaranteed third spot and Perth pulled perhaps the upset of the season to get off the bottom of the ladder.

East Fremantle was on target for a significant upset as well before reigning premiers Peel Thunder kicked seven goals to nil in the final quarter to win 10.8 (68) to 8.7 (55) at East Fremantle Oval.

Standout East Perth defender proud to reach 100 games

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

HE has earned his reputation as the best lockdown defender in the WAFL and while the journey to 100 games has had a few more injury hurdles than he would have liked, East Perth co-captain Kyle Anderson couldn’t be prouder to get there this Saturday.

Anderson made the move from Margaret River to join East Perth to first play colts back in 2009 and impressed sufficiently to make his league debut and play five matches and show exciting signs for the future as a teenager.

But it wouldn’t be until Round 1, 2011 that he made another appearance in the league side and virtually ever since then when he has been healthy, Anderson has built his reputation as the best and most respected lockdown defender in the WAFL.

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.

Mundella WAWFL Grand Finals: Watch Live!

Thursday, August 17, 2017 - 3:22 PM - by Sandra Argese

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.
