THE strength of the WAFL competition has only been heightened with experienced former AFL players including Nick Suban, Rhys Palmer, Sharrod Wellingham and Kane Mitchell who have been included in the State squad for next Saturday's clash with South Australia.

The WAFL has been a strong competition now highlighted in recent years by five consecutive State game victories including against powerhouses the VFL and SANFL, and the strength of the league has helped ensure the attraction of quality, experienced former AFL players.

There was again a bevy of them who returned to the WAFL in 2018 and that includes Suban, Palmer, Wellingham and Mitchell who have been included in the State squad for next Saturday's clash against the SANFL in Adelaide.

Round 5 Results

Monday, April 30, 2018 - 9:57 AM - by Chris Pike

IT wasn’t a Round 5 of the 2018 WAFL season for the close contests with West Perth and Swan Districts hammering the bottom two teams of 2017 Perth and East Fremantle while South Fremantle continued its winning ways and East Perth sent another strong statement.

The Round 5 action got underway on Saturday afternoon with two matches in the traditional 2.15pm timeslot and it was games to forget for the Demons and Sharks.

They are attempted to improve on 2017 seasons that saw them win just three games apiece and battle it out for the wooden spoon. But unfortunately based on their performances on Saturday at least, that improvement in 2018 might not quite be there.
