Can't help thinking a bit of a danger game for West Perth. Claremont slipping further with losing to the Demons, being a match the Tigers would have given themselves a chance. Team listings are going to be interesting to read later in the week. One would think West Perth of going in as favoured to win, but they wouldn't want to become too confident. Claremont's recent form slump can't last much longer, otherwise they'll be out of the top part of the league ladder. With the competition heating up in the second half of the season, they may find it difficult getting back in. Whereas West Perth have been steadily improving each week.

It's not about whinging for free kicks it's about player by the rules, you think scragging a player without the ball falls wihin the rules then your still in the 1960's o'l boy

Apparently this match being 'broadcast' on the Wafl application, Footy Radio.
Which is just bloody fantastic if one happens to have a new fandangled phone!
Tough titties for the rest us.
A bit of good old fashioned radio coverage would not go astray!

Every game is a danger game for WP, WA Guy, we are not flash by any stretch but we keep winning and they are honest wins at that. Yes CL are talent riddled and can come out and flog us no end with the Falcon influence they have at Tiger land but they seem to have some issues there that blokes like Harris will not tolerate, regarding Bradshaw and Co.

Senior players running the show can work quite well. Many coaches have said that their successful sides ran themselves. You have to have the right senior players however which EF and Cl evidently don't.

Just been reading the news report. Apparently the attendance is quoted at 849? Really, really hoping that is a typo error. Some one in the news room probably forgot to write a 0 on the end. Or possibly forgot to place another number before the eight?

Hopefully you are right WAG, sometimes the Wests figures can be a bit inaccurate but what they have reported is

Lathlain 1400
Fremantle 1299
Leederville 1100
Joondalup 849

for a grand total of 4,648 for the four games, maybe the official figures will be a bit higher but still we can't go much lower can we and the WAFL is now at its lowest ebb since world war 2.

More people watching Scarborough v North Beach today than any of the Wafl games...

If that is the correct crowd number for the Arena, it will be one of the lowest seen at said venue I would imagine? Certainly not what West Perth would have been looking for. The previous 4 Home games of West Perth has seen above average crowds thus far for them. But today's figure will drag it right back. :(

Good game the boys played well, love beating the collage girls.
I would say the crowd would have been over a 1000 at least , the ground works there is making access to the ground a pain in the arse, but once it's finished it will be fantastic, playing the collage girls has never been a great draw card in the past and today was no exception, I wasn't expecting a big crowd anyway but it was definitely more than 849.
