FOR the third time, we face the big challenge of Subiaco this weekend and we’ll look at a few aspects of how Claremont went so close to beating them a couple of weeks ago.

Granted they played in tough conditions in that three-point loss, but there was a lot to like about what the Tigers did.

We can’t, however, let that alter our own brand of football. We’ve got strengths that challenge Subiaco and it’s shown in the two games that we’ve faced them this season.

The big ask for the players is to maintain that intensity for the whole match.

We’ll be looking to get Steve Potente and Ben King back into the line-up this weekend if they pass a fitness test on Thursday.

Mark Hamilton is away for the weekend so there’ll be a spot up for grabs in his absence.

We performed strongly against South Fremantle but were disappointed to go down by five points at Fremantle Oval last weekend.

The battle lived up to what you would expect in a clash between second and third.

The first quarter in particular, when nine goals were kicked in horrible conditions, was an indication of two quality sides going at it.
