PREVIEW: Round 17 (2017) vs Claremont

 
Subiaco travel to the South-East of Perth to play in their country zone of Esperance this weekend.

The Lions will meet the Tigers as a part of the WA Government’s Sports Enrichment initiative and will take one of the most important games of the season to Ports Oval. The Maroons want to continue their winning ways and Claremont are still hunting for a finals appearance for the first time since 2013.

Subi have won 13 games in a row and are looking to create more space ahead of the competition after developing a solid patch of momentum. The only loss of the season came in the Round One against the Bulldogs and they haven’t looked back.

Claremont are 6-8 and one win out of the top five. They are 3-2 from the last five which included three games decided by under a goal. The Tigers have been competitive but un-predictable in 2017.
 
It will be the fourth game played in Esperance with the first being West Perth vs Peel Thunder in 2000. Subiaco faced Peel Thunder in 2005 and South Fremantle in 2011. The Lions have won both previous fixtures in Esperance.
 
“These games present a great opportunity for the WAFL clubs to connect with their regions and give something back to the communities where many of their players start their football careers. Country WA has a proud history of developing some of the game’s top talent so it’s vital we keep engaging with these communities.” WAFL Executive Manager of Football Operations Jon Haines.
 
 
 
TALKING POINTS 
 
 
VERMEERSCH HOMECOMING
 
Subi’s young forward Ryan Vermeersch made his debut against Perth last week and was swamped by the Lions after kicking his first goal in the second quarter. Verm has the assets to be a very effective key forward in the WAFL and will be delighted to be playing in his hometown of Esperance in his second ever WAFL game. An honourable mention goes to Lions big man Clancy Wheeler who will also join the travelling party to his home-town, but will not play due to injury.
 
RUCK MERRY GO ROUND
 
Subiaco will have another alternative ruck alignment with Adam Creeper set to miss the Esperance trip due to suspension. The Lions have Lachlan Delahunty as a jack of all trades and could call up Tim Sutherland or Josh Chapman, who dominated in the reserves last week.

BOLTON AWAY

The Lions will be wary of Claremont’s premier midfielder Jye Bolton who is hitting the same form that won him the Sandover Medal last year. Bolton had 36 possessions against South Fremantle last week including six tackles and five marks. The classy Victorian has also proven he can damage you on the scoreboard with a streak of six consecutive games with a major.
