Jesse Laurie, Nick Winmar and Tom Lee have returned to the club, however, Lee is set to miss the match after suffering a shoulder injury against Subiaco in pre-season.

Pre-Season Match 1 DEVT Report: Eastland controls the ruck

Tuesday, March 7, 2017 - 11:04 AM - by Murray Willis

Eastland controls the ruck

 By Murray Willis

Claremont’s reserves scratch match against Subiaco at Leederville Oval on Saturday was a game of two halves with Claremont’s first-half dominance reflected in a six goal to nil second quarter.

The boys played an emphatic brand of football and  they doubled Subiaco’s tackles, contested possessions and overall possessions for the half and finished off with some lightening fast build-ups into attack.

The second half was not so impressive, due to a combination of the effects of the heat (same for both sides), complacency and, to Subiaco’s credit, a significant lift in intensity from the opposition.

Oliver Eastland was outstanding in the ruck for the Tigers. He took very few rests off the ball in the first half.  Claremont’s other talls had to provide greater assistance in the second half but Ollie continued to dominate both with hit-outs and around the ground play whenever he was on the ball.

The side was capably led by key defender Luke Maddock, the captain for the day,and the best players were Eastland, Matt Palfrey, Kaiden Gilbert, Jared Hardisty and Nick Winmar..

Claremont also had a plethora of newcomers who looked very comfortable at senior level. Players such as Corey Mitchell, Harrison Wroth, Shaq Morton, Ben Rushforth and Jack Griffiths were among those who caught the eye.

Details:

Claremont 12.11 (83) beat Subiaco 11.6 (72)

Scorers for Claremont: M. Palfrey 3.1; M. Ehlers 2.1; B. Delaporte, K. Gilbert 2.0; M. Whitehead 1.1; O. Eastland, D. Ehlers 1.0; J. Hardisty 0.2; C. Mitchell, N. Winmar 0.1.

Best for Claremont: O. Eastland, M. Palfrey, K. Gilbert, J. Hardisty, N. Winmar.

Intra-club Report: Rogers excels in new role

Monday, February 27, 2017 - 10:23 AM - by Ken Casellas

By Ken Casellas

Jack Richardson handpassing to Keifer Yu, who got the ball on to Anton Hamp. That was a delightful passage of cohesive play late in the opening quarter of Claremont’s practice match at East Fremantle Oval on Saturday morning. The move ended with Bailey Rogers snapping a goal.

The decision to use Rogers as a midfielder was the most significant feature of the scratch match which was played in enervating heat and ended in an 11-point victory to the blue side over the gold combination.
