Optus WAFLW Round 3 Wrap

Monday, May 20, 2019 - 11:01 AM - by Chris Pike

IT was Round 3 in the 2019 Optus WAFL Women's Premiership Season on Sunday with East Fremantle stamping its authority with a big win over Swan Districts while Claremont won a thriller over Peel Thunder.

With Subiaco sitting out with the bye in Round 3 of the WAFLW season having won its opening two matches against Swan Districts and East Fremantle, it was a chance for the other four teams to make an early statement in the competition.

Both matches took place on Sunday afternoon with Claremont and Peel Thunder playing out the thriller at Claremont Oval. In the end, the Tigers just managed to prevail 5.5 (35) to 5.2 (32) over the Thunder on home soil.

It wasn’t quite as close at East Fremantle's New Choice Homes Park with last year's WA Women's Football League premiers, East Fremantle, proving too strong for Swan Districts winning 10.8 (68) to 1.1 (7).

Monday, May 20, 2019 - 1:05 AM - by Chris Pike

IT was a remarkable day of Round 6 WAFL action on Saturday with East Fremantle snapping its 15-game losing run, South Fremantle ending Subiaco's winning streak, West Perth finishing Perth's undefeated start and a win for Claremont on the back of East Perth's Thursday victory.

Round 6 of the WAFL began on Thursday night with the league recommencing following the general bye for the 2019 KIA State Game, which saw the WAFL narrowly lose to the SANFL in a tremendous contest last Sunday at Optus Stadium.

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.

“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.

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.
