WAFL West Perth: Won Against Bulldogs Despite Poor Kicking

IT was great to beat a strong side like South Fremantle, but we let ourselves down in front of goals.

We kicked 17.9 against Peel the week before and then kicked 9.17 against the Bulldogs, while playing in a similar fashion.

We’ll look to rectify that against the league’s best side in Subiaco at Arena Joondalup on Saturday. We’ve been fairly evenly matched with them over the past few years.

They beat us by just under three goals the last time we played them, but with five minutes to go there was only one-and-a-half kicks in it. Over the past 18 months, Subiaco have shown they’ve got multiple options all over the ground.

That’s why they’re the reigning premiers and three games clear on top of the table.

Their backline works well together, they have a lot of strength through the middle and a number of goal-scoring options.

So we won’t be targeting any specific players; you’ve got to pay respect them all.

There won’t be too many line-up changes from the winning sides of our past two games.

It’s difficult to make changes when you have a win against a good side.

Our biggest concern will be making sure we have the right number of tall defenders. Matt Fowler will be available this week having returned from injuries to both ankles.
