CLAREMONT has again shown it is the team to watch this season after an impressive 59-point win over Perth in its second game of the season on Saturday.
The Tigers spoiled the party for Perth skipper Clint Jones, who celebrated his 300th senior game in the first match at the revamped Lathlain Park.
Former AFL duo Beau Maister and Tom Lee were dangerous in the Claremont attack, with Maister racking up eight marks inside 50 and kicking four goals.
After kicking five goals in the Tigers’ opening round, Lee showed his versatility playing in the ruck, before adding two goals more goals to his season tally.
Young guns Gordon Narrier and Cody Ninyette showed promise for the young Demons side, who just could not match Claremont’s experience.
Liam McKenna was assigned the task of Sandover Medallist Jye Bolton, who he restricted to 13 touches until the last term, while racking up 29 himself.
Small Claremont forwards Alex Manuel and Jack Richardson both had career-best games, kicking five goals each to carry the Tigers to a 22.15 (147) to 13.10 (88) win over Perth.
Claremont faces a winless East Perth on Friday night at Leederville Oval.
