Claremont are on top of the league ad reserves so unless EP play 4 quarters of top class football in those grades we are unlikely as supporters to get anything but wet and cold in the outer (no cover to protect us from the elements.)

The colts should be the game of the day for us and it will be a danger one. We should get the points given that the Tiger cubs will have most of the first choice players out due to PSA duties but even with them I think we would win.

It’s always cold and rains when we play there, would have to be the worst ground, not just in WA, Australia for spectators, unless your seating behind the glass sipping Chardy, your going to get saturated

I still shake my head in disbelief when I drive past Claremont oval and see that multi million dollar redevelopment that is very nice, but someone forgot to put a roof out over the new club/function rooms outdoor seating ... oops!!

I heard the size of the roof was reduced as a cost cutting exercise.

Just had a look at the team, well our chances of even getting close have taken a significant hit with Cahill, Robertson and Kerr being outs.

I would like to see Adam Boules get a go along with Kalani Brooks but hey will still go and be there for the players.

Yep could be a long wet uncomfortable day. Not our best teams on paper but look forward to supporting 3 spirited efforts.

Claremont Oval is muddy disgrace. You would pay a fortune for a mud spa in Bayview Tce. Opposition supporters  are left out in the cold. Colin and cronies sit like kings behind glass. I love my team but the thought of sitting or standing in the rain is just too much. The whole complex is a joke.

The whinging is relentless, you don't have to be a member to go behind the glass, and there is shelter to be found outside. Otherwise, god forbid bring a brolly. I reckon you had to in the cherished good old days when it was wet.
And there's bugger all mud, certainly a lot less than that home of west perth dump Leederville Oval

It is where the game is played and that is it, as for the surfaces of all the grounds they differ and that is the way that it should be, used to be called home ground advantage, leederville was ok while the quisling arrangement was in place, look at lathlain now.

Just looking at our colts team who are supposed to be sitting on top of ladder getting smashed by Claremont on live stream,and i can't believe the number of freakish indigenous players in the tigers jumper,and i do'nt know where they find them because the last time i drove through claremont i did'nt notice too many walking along Bayview terrace.
