SFC 17: Around The Club, February
Tuesday, 28 February 2017
Subiaco kicked off the football season nicely with a 60-point win over Swan Districts at Steel Blue Oval.
The Lions fielded 26 players due to the +30 degree conditions and that meant a wide variety of skill sets were on display.
Despite an arm wrestle in the first half the Lions comprehensively broke away from the Swans and eight goals from Liam Ryan sent an ominous pre-season message to the rest of the league. There was also a host new faces including off season signing Gus Litherland (pictured above).

Subi were happy to welcome back Darren Rumble onto the field, (even if only for a very brief amount of time), with the six time WAFL premiership winning player lining up for the D-League (Reserves) on Saturday against the Swans. Unfortunately for Rumble the game was played in blistering heat and the Swans got a roll on.
