SUMMARY:

Four points, a badly-needed confidence boost and their first win since round four is what Claremont will be aiming to take home from their clash with West Perth at HBF Arena in Men’s Health Round on Saturday afternoon.

The Tigers, coming off five consecutive defeats, will have a 21-day break following the match, with the State Game and a round 11 bye to follow.

The West Australian Football Commission has joined forces with Prostate Cancer Foundation Australia to host the West Australia Football League’s (WAFL) Know Your Score Men’s Health Round this weekend.
 
For the fourth year, the Know Your Score Men’s Health Round initiative will see players from across the state don blue armbands to honour the men in WA who have lost their lives to prostate cancer.
 
All four WAFL games held this Saturday will aim to raise awareness of prostate cancer and encourage men to be more proactive about their health by talking to their doctor.

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

LAST TIME THEY MET:

Round 21, 2016, West Perth 17.6 (108) d Claremont 17.5 (107) at HBF Arena.

TALKING POINTS:

  1. Will the Tigers head into the mid-season break, before returning to Claremont Oval, with some momentum? To do so, they will need to end West Perth’s four-match winning run and record their first win over the Falcons since 2015.
  2. Will it be another nail-biter? Amazingly, the last five matches between the teams have been decided by 10 points or less. With showers forecast, there’s every chance another tight contest could be on the cards.
  3. Will the Tigers blood another debutant? Lachlan Martinis and Bailey Bennett debuted in round nine against Perth, and with Claremont’s Reserves in outstanding form, competition for spots will be hotly contested.
