WAFL Round 21 teams and previews

Friday, August 11, 2017 - 1:51 PM

THE top two and bottom two spots in the WAFL might have their teams decided for 2017 but in between remains a fascinating battle over finals positions coming into Round 21 on Saturday.

Subiaco is guaranteed of the minor premiership for a third straight season and South Fremantle will finish second for the second consecutive year. East Fremantle and Perth also remain anchored to the bottom two spots even though who finishes last is still to be determined.

While Peel Thunder and Swan Districts do appear set to occupy third and fourth spots as well, nothing is guaranteed for either and then there is East Perth, West Perth and Claremont remaining in a fight for what appears just the one available finals position.

Higgins reaches 100 games in career-best form at Bulldogs

Friday, August 11, 2017 - 10:36 AM - by Chris Pike

HE is the in-form ruckman in the WAFL and this Saturday South Fremantle big man Brock Higgins reaches 100 games but that's far from his focus right now.

Higgins has been South Fremantle's No. 1 ruckman ever since joining the Bulldogs from East Perth where he made 31 league appearances up until the end of 2013 after making his league debut in 2011.

The big men depth at East Perth both from inside the Royals and from West Coast always meant that Higgins would find it hard to maintain a regular place in the side. That was highlighted when he missed the 2013 finals series having played 14 games during the home and away season.

Neates proud to be celebrating 100 games at Tigerland

Friday, August 11, 2017 - 7:52 AM - by Chris Pike

CLAREMONT wingman Ryan Neates will play his first league game at the redeveloped Claremont Oval on Saturday in what happens to be his 100th WAFL appearance but his focus is on trying to help the Tigers remain in the finals race.

While there have been injury troubles along the way that have delayed his reaching 100 games and cost him the chance to play in a WAFL premiership, Neates has put together an outstanding career not just with the 99 matches at Claremont but playing in the AFL for the West Coast Eagles and also representing Western Australia on three occasions.

Neates was always earmarked as a player of the future representing WA at both State 16s and 18s level before going on to make his league debut at Claremont in 2010 and finding himself listed with the Eagles.
