SUMMARY:

Claremont will be looking to end their disappointing run of form and four-match losing streak when they host Perth at Fremantle Community Bank Oval on Saturday afternoon.

The Tigers currently find themselves outside the top five for the first time this season, and face a Perth team who will be looking to record their first win since round four.

Competition for spots in the team will be hotly contested, with Claremont’s Reserves recording a 92-point win over Peel Thunder in round eight and on a three-match winning streak.

Just like a standard home game, members with season passes or admission passes will be able to use their cards to gain entry.

The club encourages members and fans to attend the match and cheer the Tigers to victory.

TALKING POINTS:

  1. Will the Tigers break their losing streak? To do so, they’ll need to score more than the 57 points they’ve been averaging during their last four matches.
  2. Will the venue be a factor? The Tigers will be the “home” team at Fremantle Community Bank Oval for the second consecutive week, with the team set to play their third match at the venue in 29 days. Remarkably, Perth have not played at the venue since round 11, 2015.
  3. Will Zac Langdon play his first game since round five? The key Tiger was in blistering form before suffering concussion against South Fremantle, and will be a welcome return, if fit, with his ability to win the ball and kick goals.
