League: Wounded Tigers Overrun by Bulldogs

Tuesday, July 10, 2018 - 11:47 AM

By Daniel Scamozzi

A brave but wounded Claremont had their two-game winning streak ended by South Fremantle at Fremantle Community Bank Oval in NAIDOC Round, with the Tigers suffering a 26-point defeat in cold conditions.

Despite winning the first and second terms, the depleted Tigers, who lost defender Bailey Rogers and midfielder Jye Bolton to ankle injuries in the second half, couldn’t overcome the fast-finishing Bulldogs who prevailed 10.13 (73) to 6.11 (47) to win the Jimmy Melbourne Cup.

In a bruising encounter where territory was gold and goals were rare, 158 tackles were laid as both teams battled for ascendancy in and around the contest.

With just 11 goals kicked up until the final change, the Bulldogs then pulled away with four goals to one in the final term, leaving the Tigers in fifth position on the ladder.

Midfielder Kane Mitchell, who recorded a game-high 34 disposals, starred with his repeat efforts and hard running and won the players’ player award, while Jared Hardisty laid a game-high 13 tackles and set the tone in the contest with his unwavering attack on the ball and pressure on the opposition.

Declan Hardisty (19 disposals, six marks, six tackles) and Anton Hamp (team-high 10 marks) starred in defence, with the latter keeping South’s Mason Shaw goalless, while Bolton (32 disposals) was prominent before sustaining his injury approaching time-on in the final term.

The Bulldogs were led by midfielder Marlion Pickett (23 disposals, eight tackles) and Zachary Strom (eight marks, one goal), with ruckman Brock Higgins (52 hit-outs) and Brandon Donaldson (three goals) also performing strongly.

The Tigers lost Haydn Busher (corked quad) from the team that defeated East Fremantle seven days earlier, as the visitors kicked to the northern end of the ground in the opening term.

With the Tigers wearing a guernsey designed by James Egan, and the teams playing with a special NAIDOC football designed by Samantha Mitchell, daughter of Claremont legend Michael Mitchell, an early goal from Tom Lee gave the visitors a great start to the game.

Matt Palfrey then benefited from a great tackle in midfield from Lachlan Martinis and a great pass from Morgan Davies as he kicked the Tigers’ second, with D. Hardisty denying the Bulldogs at the other end of the ground.

A great tackle from Lee on Higgins at half-back resulted in a free kick to the hardworking Tiger, before South’s Ben Saunders kicked truly to pull the Bulldogs to within three points at quarter-time.

Another great tackle, this time from ruckman Eddie Simpson on Pickett, resulted in a free kick to the Tiger early in the second term before Haiden Schloithe gave the Bulldogs the lead for the first time.

Lee then replied with his second goal to give the Tigers a five-point lead at half-time.

A goal to South’s Matt Parker reclaimed the lead for the hosts in the opening minute of the second half, before Tigers captain Ian Richardson caught Pickett holding the ball and replied with his first major.

Rogers was then stretchered from the ground in a cruel blow for the in-form Tiger and team, before a pair of goals from Donaldson gave the Bulldogs a seven-point lead.

Richardson replied with his second before Strom restored the Bulldogs’ seven-point lead at the final change.

Schloithe made the Tigers pay for two missed shots when he kicked his second goal early in the final term, before Jordan Law trimmed the deficit to six points.

However, the last three goals to the Bulldogs, combined with Bolton’s injury and a sore Nick Winmar proved too much for the Tigers to overcome.

The Tigers have a bye in round 15 before hosting East Perth at Claremont Oval in round 16.

Reserves: Waterman Inspires Tigers

By Daniel Scamozzi

A five-goals-to-nil opening term was the catalyst for Claremont’s Reserves’ 19-point win against South Fremantle at Fremantle Community Bank Oval in round 14, but it was the inspirational return of a brilliant midfielder that delighted the Tiger Army.

Alec Waterman, son of dual West Coast Eagles premiership player Chris, and older brother of current Eagle Jake, last played for the Tigers in the 2014 Colts grand final.

He was then drafted by West Coast as a father-son selection before glandular fever and a post-viral fatigue illness cruelled the powerful midfielder’s chances of plying his trade at the highest level.

Waterman, 21, played eight League games for East Perth, however, Saturday’s 12.5 (77) to 8.10 (58) triumph was the Tiger’s first game since round 10, 2015, and also his Reserves debut.

An assistant coach earlier in the season and, more recently, a team runner, Waterman provided the highlight of the game when he snapped the Tigers’ third goal at the midway point of the opening term before being mobbed by his jubilant teammates.

He then kicked the opening goal of the second term and showed promising glimpses on-ball with his power and raking kick.

After bursting out of the blocks, the Tigers added four goals to two in the second term to take a 43-point lead at half-time, and despite the Bulldogs kicking six goals to three in the second half, the top-of-the-ladder Tigers held on to record consecutive wins.

Spearhead Nicholas Allan (seven marks) kicked a game-high six goals and won the players’ player award in just his fifth game, while the composed Jacob Orr impressed in defence.

The dashing Ben Rushforth (one goal) gave the Tigers great run and helped set the tone with an inspirational tackle in the opening term, while the returning Tom Lawrence (six marks) also impressed in defence.

Meanwhile, the hardworking Tom Ledger recorded team-high totals of 28 disposals and eight tackles.

Jake Florenca recorded a game-high 41 disposals for the Bulldogs, however, despite recording two more inside-50s and one more scoring shot, the hosts were left to rue their poor start and suffered their sixth loss of the season.

Consecutive goals to Allan gave the ferocious Tigers a great start to the game before Waterman helped them establish an 18-point lead midway through the opening term.

Rhett Lloyd then benefited from a hardball get and handball from Bailey Bennett to kick the Tigers’ fourth, before Rushforth epitomised the team’s appetite for the contest with his outstanding chase and tackle.

Allan then kicked his third after relentless forward pressure to give the Tigers a 31-point lead over the scoreless Bulldogs at quarter-time, with coach Steve Armstrong lauding the bright start and imploring the team to move the ball quick to the dangerous forwards.

An unmarked Waterman made it six consecutive goals when he kicked truly in the second term after being found by Bennett, before Daniel Cabassi kicked the Bulldogs’ first major.

James Egan, who designed Claremont’s League guernsey as part of NAIDOC Round, replied before Jordon Reid applied a great tackle on former Tiger Steven Edwards and kicked the team’s eight goal.

Rushforth then slammed through the Tigers’ ninth before Caleb Datson kicked the Bulldogs’ second.

The result was a 43-point lead to the Tigers at half-time, before the Bulldogs kicked three goals to none in the third term to close to within 20 points at the final change.

A great attack on the ball and long kick from Orr helped Allan register his fourth goal early in the final term before he quickly added his fifth to give the Tigers an unassailable 32-point lead.

His sixth then helped them hold off the fast-finishing Bulldogs.

The Tigers have a bye in round 15 before hosting East Perth at Claremont Oval in round 16.

Meanwhile, Claremont’s Colts suffered an 82-point loss to South Fremantle, 15.13 (103) to 2.9 (21).

League: Tigers Roar into Top Five

Monday, July 2, 2018 - 12:12 PM

A dominant first half helped Claremont record a 20-point win against East Fremantle in Geraldton in round 13, giving the Tigers consecutive wins for the first time this season and catapulting the team into fifth position on the ladder.

Nine goals to two set up a commanding 44-point lead at half-time, and despite the Sharks kicking eight goals to four in the second half, the Tigers prevailed 13.11 (89) to 10.9 (69) to record their fifth win of the season.

Lachlan Martinis (28 disposals, seven marks, one goal) continued his strong form to finish as Claremont’s best player and won the players’ player award, with Jack Beeck (22 disposals) also outstanding across half-back.

Captain Ian Richardson kicked four goals for the second time in seven days, while Jared Hardisty laid a team-high eight tackles and Keifer Yu kicked three goals.

Matt Palfrey was recalled as both teams were allowed an extra player on the interchange, however, the Tigers lost Haydn Busher (corked thigh) early in the opening term.

Reserves: Tigers Pounce on Sharks

Monday, July 2, 2018 - 12:07 PM

 

Claremont’s Reserves bounced back to form and returned to the top of the ladder after defeating East Fremantle by 36 points at East Fremantle Oval in round 13.

A blistering six-goals-to-none opening term set up the 15.9 (99) to 9.9 (63) triumph – the Tigers’ eighth win of the season – and featured the entire team playing its role and impacting the contest.

Midfielder Tom Ledger was Claremont’s best player and helped set the tone with his brilliant start to the game, which included two first-quarter goals, and finished the contest with 36 disposals (20 contested), a team-high five tackles and game-high 11 inside 50s.

The tireless Jacob Sideris provided fine support and recorded a game-high 38 disposals and also kicked two first-quarter goals, while Nic Bucknall kicked a team-high three goals and won the players’ player award.

Wingmen Josh Bennett (acting captain) and Tom Shanahan gave the Tigers great service with their run and link-up, while ruckman Jeremy Goddard (53 hit-outs) gave the midfield first use.

East Fremantle’s Nicholas Bonomelli kicked a game-high five goals, however, the last-placed Sharks were blown out of the water by the Tigers’ early onslaught and suffered their ninth defeat of the season.

Shanahan, Jordon Reid, Tre Kelton and Corey Hitchcock all came into the team as the Tigers kicked to the southern end of the ground in the opening term with the breeze at their backs, with Bailey Bennett making the most of a spearing pass from Ledger to kick the game’s opening goal.

Ledger then went from goal provider to scorer when he wobbled through the Tigers’ second, before Bucknall finished with aplomb from a tight angle.

Sideris then dribbled through the Tigers’ fourth goal after some fine work from Goddard in the ruck, before Ledger made the Sharks pay from a 50m penalty with his second.

A fine mark from Reid and repeat efforts from Jack Blaauw then allowed the speedy Sideris to slam through his second and the Tigers’ sixth goal as the dominant start resulted in a 35-point lead at quarter-time, with coach Steven Armstrong lauding the team’s efforts and pressing.

A sharp turn and exquisite finish from deep in the pocket from James Egan extended the lead to 41 early in the second term, before consecutive goals to Bonomelli got the Sharks on the board.

A second to Bucknall gave the Tigers a 31-point lead at half-time, before a great chase and tackle from Kelton allowed Nicholas Allan to kick truly and extend the lead early in the second half.

Four of the next five goals saw the Sharks close to within 24 points at the final change, before a second to Bailey Bennett early in the final term gave the Tigers the opening goal of every term.

Mackenzie Bristow replied for the Sharks, before Brett Wilson and a third goal to Bucknall gave the Tigers an unassailable 37-point lead.

Second goals to Egan and Allan then capped off the strong win.

The Tigers will aim for consecutive wins when they face South Fremantle at Fremantle Community Bank Oval in round 14.

Meanwhile Claremont’s Colts suffered a 55-point defeat against East Fremantle, 15.11 (101) to 7.4 (46).

League: Rogers Leads Tigers Past Royals

Monday, June 25, 2018 - 2:08 PM

By Dan Scamozzi

A best-on-ground performance from robust defender Bailey Rogers was one of the highlights of Claremont’s outstanding 32-point win against East Perth at Leederville Oval in round 12.

In sublime conditions and Haydn Busher’s 100th game, Rogers recorded a career-high and equal game-high 35 disposals, a career and game-high 16 marks and deservedly won the players’ player award as the dominant Tigers recorded their fourth win of the season.

The 14.11 (95) to 9.9 (63) triumph resulted from an even team performance, a determined mindset, terrific intensity, relentless pressure and excellent ball retention and electrifying ball movement as the Tigers moved to within percentage of the fifth-placed Royals.

123 more disposals, 16 more tackles, seven more inside-50s, seven more scoring shots and nine goal kickers reflected the Tigers’ superiority, however, desire was arguably the biggest difference between the teams.

Along with Rogers, midfielder Jye Bolton recorded 35 disposals but also had a game-high nine inside-50s as he dominated the clearances with his appetite for the contest and repeat efforts, while forward Tom Lee (eight marks, three goals) monstered East Perth’s defence with his work rate and contested marking.

Defender Declan Hardisty (five marks, six tackles) provided fine support for Rogers, while captain Ian Richardson, who appeared set for a big game before it had commenced, kicked a game-high four goals.

And ruckman Eddie Simpson (seven marks, 29 hit-outs, one goal), who replaced Oliver Eastland (knee) in the team, excelled against West Coast’s Nathan Vardy with his will to compete and efforts around the ground.

Meanwhile, midfielder Brayden Ainsworth (22 disposals, three goals) fought a lone hand for the Royals as they suffered their fifth consecutive loss.

Morgan Davies and Isaac Wallace were rewarded for their excellent form in the Reserves as they replaced Tom Ledger and Shaquille Morton in the team which lost to West Perth in round 11, as the Tigers kicked to the northern end of the ground in the opening term.

Ainsworth gave the Royals first blood when he kicked the opening goal of the game, before Lee hauled in the first of his contested marks and kicked truly along with Richardson as the Tigers hit back and took an eight-point lead.

Will Maginness then kicked the Royals’ second, before Ryan Lim set sail from distance to give the Tigers a nine-point lead at quarter-time.

With the Tigers on top in most areas of the contest, coach Darren Harris lauded the team before goals to Jared Hardisty and Lee, the latter coming from another contested mark, gave them an excellent start to the second term and extended the lead to 21 points.

Lee then went from goal scorer to provider as he set Richardson up for his second before a rampaging Keifer Yu launched from distance to slam home the Tigers’ seventh major.

The Tigers’ brilliant foot skills and ball retention were denying East Perth the chance to set up their zone defence, however, late goals to Jack Petruccelle and Ainsworth pulled the hosts to within 21 points at half-time.

Further goals to Luke Partington and Matt Allen gave the Royals four in a row and cut the lead to just nine points early in the third term, before another contested mark from Lee saw the powerful Tiger kick his third goal.

Simpson was next to benefit from Lee’s superb marking and kicking as the big man kicked the Tigers’ ninth goal, before Jared Hardisty set Richardson up for his third goal.

Bolton was then reported for rough conduct after a strong tackle, before Richardson soon added his fourth and Tom Curren made the Royals pay from a 50m penalty.

Five consecutive goals in 16 scintillating minutes of play saw the Tigers take a commanding 37-point lead at the final change, with Harris imploring the team to stay the course.

Fittingly, man-of-the-moment Busher would kick the opening goal of the final term to extend the advantage, before hard running and a fine finish from the feisty Jordan Law made it seven consecutive majors and gave the Tigers a 49-point lead.

Three late goals from the Royals provided little more than consolation for the hosts, as the Tigers recorded their biggest win of the season and chaired Busher from the ground.

The Tigers will aim for consecutive wins when they face East Fremantle in Geraldton in round 13.

Reserves: Tigers Suffer Royal Hiding

Monday, June 25, 2018 - 2:04 PM

By Dan Scamozzi

A listless performance from Claremont’s Reserves resulted in a 63-poing hiding from East Perth at Leederville Oval in round 12, with the Tigers belted in most parts of the contest in sublime conditions.

The 17.19 (121) to 9.4 (58) defeat continued the Tigers’ inconsistent form and saw them drop to second position on the ladder, trailing Subiaco on percentage.

The Tigers were badly exposed in mindset, effort and desire as the inaccurate Royals recorded their sixth win of the season.

Defender Jesse Laurie won the players’ player award for his resolute performance, while Tom Ledger (six tackles) responded to his League omission with a solid performance after quarter-time.

Jack Lewsey battled manfully while Bailey Bennett and James Egan each kicked two goals.

Despite being comprehensively outplayed in the first half, the Tigers started the second half brightly as second goals to Bennett and Egan pulled them to within 10 points of the Royals.

Fierce tackles from Ben Rushforth and Lewsey both resulted in free kicks and were the highlights of the brief period where the Tigers got themselves back into the contest.

However, the Royals responded and ran out big winners.

The Tigers face East Fremantle at East Fremantle Oval in round 13.

Meanwhile, Claremont’s Colts suffered a 16-point loss against East Perth, 8.8 (56) to 5.10 (40).
