The WAFL’s on!

• Carnival atmosphere. The Fremantle Derby attracted a crowd of 4000.



We’re a quarter of the way through qualifying rounds of the 2020 mini-season.


There are three unbeaten teams: South Fremantle who scored heavily in the derby and then hardly at all in beating West Perth; Claremont who dumped Subiaco in round one and Perth who might be on the way to their first finals series since who-knows-when…



Subiaco are not in the four (but have only played one game).



There’s a rising star: Perth’s Logan McDonald kicked three goals on debut in round one and four in round two.

  1. Went to the Swan Districts game at Claremont on Saturday. Claremont are hardly world beaters. Swans matched them for effort and intensity all day and were level at half time. Claremont had the size and class to get home comfortably in the end. My hope is that Swans can beat the strugglers like East Fremantle and East Perth to finish mid table. They are certainly having a crack and playing for the coach and each other. The midfield gets an A for effort and a D for disposal skills.
    My first time at the redeveloped Claremont Oval. Sheesh not footy as we know it Jim. Ringed by glass tower apartments full of FIFO’s, retirees and drug dealers. The bar had Cullens Cab Merlot from the top end of Margaret River. Bassendean has the can bar in the outer and bombo valley casks.
    I enjoyed berating the silvertails in the first half. Good game to watch. My main gripe is WAFL is over umpired and they were certainly eager to please the peanut gallery in the members bar.
