Only a matter of time before your club is a basket case again once your bank account runs dry only this time no other WAFL clubs will answer your calls for help and with no spiritual home you can just disappear into the ether.

Only need to look at Brad Smith who did 2 knees while on the Weags list, came back to Subi and was a dominant player. The reduced load allows them to get on the paddock, hope that's the case for Tunbridge.


I wouldn't compare Tunbridge with Smith, different leagues. Mzungu was the player we needed.

Yeh that's a blow Mzungu going back to Fremantle in a development role, though doesn't sound like a match day role I wonder if playing for us is still a possibility? We should be in discussions with him about the possibility.


No chance of him playing he's the Dockers match day runner as well

HaHa nice one DD, the club has planned carefully for life after Subi oval closes so don't hold your breath on that one and as for spititual home, leederville's been great for us, great player and member facilities, can even watch the footy from the bar which is a new thing for us, so was that the thinking for Perth when they left their spiritual home at the WACA to move out to Lathlain in the 50's?

SS, our move to Lathlain in 1959 was to position ourselves in the heartland of our local zones which in those days were very heavily populated with young families. Hence our successes of the 60s and 70s.
We started with only the grandstand. Our social rooms comprised only the very small areas now known as the Redlegs Bar and the Rovers Bar. Our social hall came later in the mid sixties.
Over the years the demographics of our local zones changed dramatically and they are now eroded of young families. Add to that there have been periodic rezonings which have robbed us of some of the newer, growing and fruitful suburbs. Our areas have not seen growth anywhere near to that seen along the coastal belts both north and south of the river.
Perhaps the impending review will address all these matters.

Smokey: The club did the right thing not becoming 'Southern Districts'; all it would have done was split the club with no benefit on the filed.
