PREVIEW: Round 12 vs Peel
- Thursday, 02 June 2016
The Lions have lost their last two home games but were buoyed by a dominant four-quarter performance against the Royals last week.
Peel are coming off a big win of their own after downing East Fremantle by 26 points at ATOM Stadium last week. The Thunder are 6-4 and finding consistency as the season goes on.
The line-ups will be fairly different in Round 12 with rigours of the WAFL season taking a toll on both sides.
Scott Hancock, Lachlan Delahunty, Brett Robinson, Wayde Twomey Kyle Halligan Jordan Lockyer, and Hayden Kennedy are notable casualties for Subiaco whilst Peel have been significantly weakened by AFL affiliate Fremantle’s injury woes.
Tendai Mzungu has been out of favour at Fremantle this year but he hasn’t let it affect his determination on the field. Mzungu has been dominating for Peel since being dropped to the WAFL averaging 23.8 disposals a game. The Docker had 27 touches and eight tackles against the Sharks last week.
Peel and Subiaco have been relying on their player list depth and this game will be decided by the younger players who are willing to stand up. Subiaco’s back line has been exemplary with Aaron Heal, Declan Jackson & Greg Clark performing out of sight. Peel played eight players with ten or less games experience against East Fremantle last week and got the win.
