Falcons fly east for another battle at Melbourne stadium

The Falcons face Hawthorn-|affiliate and 2013 VFL premiers Box Hill in their first clash on Tuesday, May 6.

President Brett Raponi said the club had requested a bye for the preceding WAFL round and a Sunday game for the following weekend to ease the extra playing load of a weekday fixture.

He expected the wide-open spaces of Docklands to suit West Perth’s game plan.

‘Box Hill play on small, wet and boggy grounds,’ he said.
