Round 21 Match Reports

Monday, August 27, 2018 - 11:57 AM - by Chris Pike

IT took until the very last kick of the 2018 WAFL season for Claremont to snatch fourth position and a home elimination final against East Perth with big last round victories also for Subiaco, South Fremantle and the Royals.

Coming into the final round of the 2018 WAFL season, East Perth, Perth and Peel Thunder were still all a chance to finish in fifth position and to play finals football.

The first thing to determine things was the match at Bendigo Bank Stadium between the premiers of the past two seasons, Peel Thunder, and East Perth.

WAFC Media Statement: WAFL Reserves Grand Final

Monday, August 27, 2018 - 11:56 AM

"The West Australian Football Commission recognises the importance of the WAFL Reserves in supporting the success of the WAFL competition and we are focussing our efforts on making sure the Reserves Grand Final is a great experience for everyone involved on Saturday, September 22.”

“Like all WAFL clubs, we wanted to play the Reserves Grand Final at Optus Stadium on the same day as the League and Colts, however the significant cost of playing all three games on the same day, along with our commercial broadcast obligations, meant it wasn't possible.”

“We have worked hard with Optus Stadium to explore all options but it is a new era for WA football with a new financial model and we must adapt to the new stadium moving forward.”

“We will undertake a full review at the end of the year and hopefully with a bumper crowd to support the commercial model at Optus Stadium we will be able to reconsider how the Reserves Grand Final is scheduled in the future.”

“The Reserves Premiers will also be invited to attend Optus Stadium so they can be celebrated at half time of the League Grand Final and have their achievements showcased.”

“We have an obligation to showcase the WAFL on Grand Final day and Optus Stadium provides an amazing opportunity for WAFL fans and players to experience a world-class stadium, which we hope will become the long-term home of the WAFL Grand Final.”

“The WAFC has also been overwhelmed by the great public response to the League Grand Final being scheduled at Optus Stadium, followed by the first ever public kick-to-kick, which has generated great excitement among WAFL fans of all ages.”

- WAFC CEO Gavin Taylor

IT is the final round of the 2018 WAFL season and there remains three teams all capable of snatching fifth position with only one of East Perth, Perth and Peel Thunder to have their seasons continue beyond Saturday evening.

It is set to be quite the exciting conclusion to the home and away season in the WAFL for 2018 and all eyes will be on Bendigo Bank Stadium with the reigning premiers of the last two years, Peel Thunder, hosting East Perth.

It's not quite as simple as saying that the winner between the Thunder and Royals will play finals but it almost is the case.

Round 20 Match Reports

Thursday, August 23, 2018 - 11:07 AM - by Chris Pike

THE WAFL's top three teams all flexed their muscles in Round 20 action on Saturday as Subiaco, South Fremantle and West Perth recorded comfortable wins while Claremont came from behind to beat Peel Thunder and lock in a finals berth in 2018.

It was the second last round of the 2018 home and away season on Saturday and while Subiaco, South Fremantle and West Perth couldn’t move from the top three spots, and Swan Districts and East Fremantle were anchored at the bottom, the last two finals positions were up for grabs.

Going into the penultimate round, Claremont, East Perth, Perth and Peel Thunder were still a chance to play finals and that's now still the case heading into the final round next Saturday but the job is decidedly more challenging for the Demons than the rest.
