TABtouch Team of Round 11

Wednesday, June 20, 2018 - 10:59 AM - by Chris Pike

A COUPLE of exciting Perth forwards combined for 12 goals, the reigning Sandover Medallist was on fire, a versatile Subiaco big man continued to dominate and a West Perth veteran made it 13 goals in his last two games as just some of the standout Round 11 WAFL performers.

There were plenty of outstanding individual performers on Saturday in Round 11 of the 2018 WAFL season with wins along the way for the top three teams Subiaco, South Fremantle and West Perth, and a Perth side who put themselves right in the finals hunt.

The thriller of the afternoon took place at Claremont Oval with West Perth beating Claremont 9.8 (62) to 8.13 (61) with Andrew Strijk booting another five goals for the Falcons.

M & J Chickens Player of Round 11

Wednesday, June 20, 2018 - 10:50 AM - by Chris Pike

HIS WAFL debut might have come at the advanced age of 24, but Michael Bennell has already made up for lost time and on Saturday he delivered a stunning seven-goal performance for Perth to earn M & J Chickens Player of the Round honours.

Bennell did play a handful of games for Swan Districts' reserves back in 2013, but he has spent recent years in Albany and playing in the WAFL did appear a faraway thought for most of that time.

He did play some impressive football in the forward-line for the Albany Sharks, but still he was settled down south and as he approached his 24th birthday, a career in the WAFL was beginning to appear unlikely.

Proud 200-gamer Richardson wants more Tigers glory

Thursday, June 14, 2018 - 11:49 PM - by Chris Pike

HE achieved everything and more he could have imagined in a dream first six years of his WAFL career before taking a year off, but Claremont captain Ian Richardson is as motivated as ever for more team success as he becomes the ninth Tiger to 200 games.

Richardson reaches the 200-game mark with Claremont this Saturday at Claremont Oval against West Perth and by doing so joins fellow Tigers David Crawford (200), Les Mumme (206), Wayne Harvey (217), Lorne Cook (229), Kevin Clune (231), Graham Moss (254), Ken Caporn (273) and Darrell Panizza (274).

It's yet another accomplishment in a glittering career from the hard-leading, long kicking left-footed half forward who has assumed the captaincy in 2018 trying to lead Claremont back to some of the success he was part of over the opening six years of his career.
