WE don’t have the most talented list, but the players have shown that if everyone is on the same page then success is achievable in the WAFL.

A good brand of team football has us in second spot, but the season is far from over.

Peel presents a tough challenge for us at Joondalup Arena this weekend and then we have third-placed South Fremantle the following week.

It appears the Thunder could receive an injection of omitted AFL-listed players with Fremantle a chance to welcome back Aaron Sandilands, Sean Darcy and Stephen Hill.

Peel defeated South Fremantle quite easily last weekend, so as always, we’ll need to be at our very best to come away with a win.

The players were fantastic in our 90-point win over Swan Districts in tough conditions in Joondalup on Saturday.

The players were not distracted by the recent media around the club’s financial issues and put together a comfortable victory.

We will possibly have two changes resulting from that game after Jordan Mills received a cork and Steven Potente twisted his ankle.

We moved Mills from defence into the forward line so he could stand in the goal square after he was injured and he managed to kick three goals.
