Claremont hosting a Final which will be interesting to view the team listing later in the week.
Not sure of their current injury list? The only worry Claremont have that I can see is Richardson being reported in thee final Home and Away fixture. Going to be interesting to hear the outcome.
Claremont are averaging 93 points for their Home games for the season and should be able to secure a victory in the Elimination Final.
Claremont don't seem to have any ground advantage, so I'm sure Harris will have them focussed on the job at hand. The Tigers should be winning by about 3 goals.
The long range weather forecast on match day is said to be Fine and partly cloudy with a temperature of approx 20º.
Hoping a bumper crowd turn out in attendance.

It'll also be interesting wag to see who WCE release for the game. As they're not playing next weekend it's my understanding of the qualification rules aligned players must have played 5 games in total with at least 3 on or after June 30 with a maximum of 12 players allowed....whereas if WCE were playing next weekend they could release whomever they like.

I expect East Perth to have the same side they had against Peel, with Oscar Allen and Jackson Nelson to come back in. Really looking forward to this game, not happy about it being 2 40 on a Sunday arvo though. AFL free weekend, the game should be on a Saturday arvo

East Perth will have to drop one out of last weeks team as they played 13 last week and will only be able to play 12 for the finals.I am sure that Oallen and Nelson have qualified for the finals but if either play another eagle will have to drop out.

Good news for Claremont fans - With Captain Ian Richardson being available for Sunday’s elimination final after a striking report was dismissed by the match review panel.

Yep. I'm sure the WAFL has stated Saturday is their day or preferred day. In this case I think they just did what they did last year, and didn't really think it over. Nothing surprising about the last bit.

With there being no AFL matches this weekend, there will be a lot of people looking for their "footy fix" and hopefully that spills over into good attendances for Week 1 of the WAFL finals. .
So, having matches on both days may attract those fans who want to attend both the qualifying and elimination finals.
Not often I say this, but there might be some slight method in the WAFL/WAFC's madness.

Correct ADGM, last year 5637 people attended the elimination final at Bassendean on a Sunday on Fathers day which I think was the highest finals attendance ( non Grand Final) for a few years. My son took me as a fathers day pressie and I wasnt the only one in that situation. Last years qualifying final on the Saturday at Fremantle only attracted about 3600 so that puts to bed the notion that people won't turn up on Sunday.
The WAFC have done the right thing (on this occasion) by maximising the exposure of the WAFL finals on a non AFL weekend and giving people the opportunity to attend both games should they wish.
