IT was obviously disappointing to perform like that against Subiaco on Saturday (the Falcons were thrashed by nearly 12 goals at Leederville Oval) after being so good the week before against Claremont.

Our effort and intensity were not up to the required standard and Subi made us pay.

Our plan was to win one of our last two games (against Subiaco and South Fremantle) and that’s what we’re working toward this Saturday (when West Perth host South at Joondalup Arena).

Win this weekend and we finish fourth.

Lose and there’s every likelihood we won’t play finals.

Against South Fremantle, we need to make sure our intensity is up around the contest.

We have to get our hands on the contested ball, have good tackle pressure and build on our game from there.
