Top Five, So Far
- Thursday, 23 April 2015
The Lions have started the season how they finished the last one; boosting to 4-1 and first place on the ladder.
Subiaco have produced some stellar moments on the way and we recap the best five so far in 2015.
1. A MOMENT TO RECOLLECT
Subiaco used the opening moments of their Round One clash with Claremont to unfurl the 2014 premiership flag. Over two thousand were in attendance as Subi raised their 12th premiership flag with the help of 6PR’s Ben Cameron and club president Mark Lawrence.
2. YAZ IGNITES
Subi forward Shane Yarran was a chance to go in the 2014 AFL draft but un-luckily for the rest of the WAFL he was over-looked. The classy forward made Claremont his first victim in 2015, kicking three goals in a five-minute rampage to blow the Tigers out of the water. Yaz finished with five against the Tigers and currently leads the WAFL in goals with 19 on the season
3. HANDY START
Scott Hancock made the move to Subiaco over the off-season and faced his old side East Fremantle in Round Two. The speedy winger got off to the perfect start at his old haunt; bursting away from the centre square and nailing a running goal within the first ten seconds of the game. It doesn’t get better than that Handy!
4. CHRISTIE ON LOCK
Former first Round AFL Draft pick Jordan Lockyer returned to West Australia over the off-season to re-invigorate his footballing career at Subiaco. The move has done wonders for the defender and Lockyer’s efforts were acknowledged with the Andrew Christie medal (The player that best demonstrates the ANZAC spirit) against West Perth in Round Four. A gutsy performance in the defensive trenches by Locks and co. saw West Perth held to two goals in three quarters of football.
5. SUBI FIREPOWER
The Lions were questioned on their scoring ability after consecutive low scoring weeks but they put doubters to rest against South Fremantle by amassing 24 goals in a 89 point win. Shane Yarran kicked six, Brad Stevenson kicked six and Rhys Waters kicked four as the Lions recorded their biggest total since 2011.
