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.

Tigers Overrun by Bulldogs

by Dan Scamozzi

A barnstorming five-goal-to-one opening term wasn’t enough for Claremont to stop South Fremantle, who claimed a 25-point win over the Tigers in NAIDOC Round at Claremont Oval.

The result sees Claremont drop to seventh position on the ladder after consecutive losses, trailing sixth-placed East Perth on percentage but still just one win outside the top five.

Development Report: Tigers Return to Winning Ways

Tuesday, July 4, 2017 - 12:44 PM

By Dan Scamozzi

Claremont’s Reserves returned to the winners’ list with a 34-point defeat of Peel Thunder in bitterly cold and wet conditions at Bendigo Bank Stadium.

The 8.17 (65) to 4.7 (31) result saw the Tigers record their ninth win of the season, move one win clear in second position on the ladder and close to within one win of first-placed South Fremantle, who they host in round 16.

Despite leading by just two points at quarter-time, with the football replicating a bar of soap and goals at a premium, the Tigers kicked two goals to nil in the second term, before adding five more after half-time in one of the team’s best wins of the season.
