Bears crash to earth

Red hot rivalry... South Fremantle player Craig White and East
Red hot rivalry... South Fremantle player Craig White and East

The first grade game, expected to be a close competition, ended in a minor blowout, with the Sharks scoring consistently and Willagee suffering from a lack of cohesion in the ruck area.

Reserve grade was a close game until two late tries by the Sharks sealed it for them.

Willagee life member Colin MacDonald, returning to reserve grade action on the day to remember his old mate Troy, cut a fine figure.

A positive aspect was the Willagee under 18s and ladies, who had wins.
