Round 19 Preview Claremont v East Perth

Wednesday, July 26, 2017 - 2:24 PM

By Dan Scamozzi

Sixth-placed Claremont and seventh-placed East Perth will both be aiming to end losing streaks when they clash at Claremont Oval on Saturday.

The Tigers, who had a bye in round 18, will be aiming to end their three-game losing streak and record their first win since round 14, while the Royals enter the game on the back of consecutive losses.

With finals fast approaching, a fierce contest is set to unfold as both teams aim to record their seventh win of the season.

The WAFL’s ‘Real Men Wear Pink’ round, supporting breast cancer research, will be held across all four League games this Saturday, July 29.

The round will be played in partnership with the National Breast Cancer Foundation’s ‘Real Men Wear Pink’ campaign and expands on last year’s initiative by the Claremont Football Club to support the cause by playing in a jumper with a pink sash instead of the club’s traditional yellow.

All home teams across the four League games will also wear pink socks.

'Get Pinked' marquees at each ground will offer face painting, hair spray, temporary tattoos and merchandise so fans can show their support and help raise funds for the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF).
 
Through the Real Men Wear Pink campaign, NBCF hopes to raise more than $1.5 million through community support, to fund breast cancer research.

League Report: Andrews flies the flag

Tuesday, July 18, 2017 - 12:10 PM

By Ken Casellas

He’s not flash and he’s not fancy. But Claremont’s Mitch Andrews produced yet another superb display against red-hot premiership favourites Subiaco at Ports Oval in Esperance on Saturday to enhance his reputation as the State’s best ruckman.

The 30-year-old Andrews rolled up his sleeves and flexed his muscles to dominate the hit-outs and stoppages in a wholehearted, herculean display against a ruthlessly efficient and highly-skilled opposition.

Sadly, it was in vain as the Tigers were beaten by 40 points by a high-flying side which brought up its 14th win in succession.

Development Report: Simpson Inspires Tigers

Monday, July 17, 2017 - 11:20 AM

By Dan Scamozzi

A six-goal haul from Eddie Simpson inspired Claremont’s Reserves to a 37-point win against Subiaco at Leederville Oval.

Simpson, omitted from the League team following the round 16 loss to South Fremantle, responded in ominous fashion by hauling in seven marks and providing a focal point in the 14.15 (99) to 9.8 (62) win, which sees the Tigers maintain second position on the ladder after their 10th win of the season.

Despite eight less inside 50s, the Tigers recorded 80 more disposals, 18 more tackles and 12 more scoring shots, built on the back of superb defensive efforts by acting captain Bailey Rogers (27 disposals, eight marks), Declan Hardisty (players’ player award) and Luke Maddock (20 disposals).

Round 17 Preview Subiaco v Claremont

Wednesday, July 12, 2017 - 12:08 PM

By Dan Scamozzi

Claremont will be aiming to bounce back to form when they face Subiaco in Esperance on Saturday afternoon, in partnership with the Department of Sport and Recreation and State Government’s Country Sports Enrichment Scheme (CSES).

The game will be played at Ports Football Club, hosted by the Esperance District Football Association, and will be the fourth WAFL fixture played in Esperance. 

There have been 53 WAFL games played with CSES funding since the scheme commenced in 1999 and over $1.3 million contributed to the program during that time.
 
Overall, 71 WAFL games have been played in country WA since 1984, providing 22 years of consecutive service to regional WA.

Coming off consecutive losses, the Tigers remain one win outside the top five, while the Lions will be chasing their 14th consecutive win.

WHERE AND WHEN:

League: Ports Football Club, Esperance, Saturday, July 15, 1.10pm.

Reserves: Leederville Oval, Sunday, July 16, 11.30am.

Colts: Leederville Oval, Sunday, July 16, 9.00am.

LAST TIME THEY MET:

Round 6, 2017, Claremont 6.9 (45) def by Subiaco 15.10 (100) at East Fremantle Oval.

HEAD-TO-HEAD:

Played: 275.

Subiaco: 144.

Claremont: 130.

Draws: 1.

TALKING POINTS:

  1. A win for Claremont will see the Tigers jump above West Perth, who have a bye, and could move the team into fifth position, depending on East Perth’s result against Peel Thunder.
  2. To end their two-game losing streak, the Tigers will need to defeat the Lions for the first time since 2014.
  3. A win for the Tigers against their traditional rivals would give the team a massive confidence boost heading into their final bye for the season in round 18.

 

 

 

Development Report: Tigers Bitten by Bulldogs

Monday, July 10, 2017 - 12:37 PM

by Dan Scamozzi

Claremont’s Reserves suffered a disappointing 25-point defeat to South Fremantle in their top-of-the-table clash at Claremont Oval.

Despite leading by 14 points at half-time after a blistering five-goal-to-one second term, the Bulldogs slammed on eight goals to two in the second half to prevail 13.9 (87) to 9.8 (62).

The result leaves Claremont in second position on the ladder, two wins behind South Fremantle.

Aaron Holt (18 disposals, eight tackles, one goal) continued his impressive form to finish as Claremont’s best player, with Jacob Sideris (32 disposals, six tackles, one goal) in strong support.
