WHAT South Fremantle coach Todd Curley had to say following the Preliminary Final triumph against Claremont that saw the Bulldogs advance to this Sunday's WAFL Grand Final against Subiaco at Optus Stadium.

QUESTION: You've waited a long time to get a Grand Final now, what's the feeling like to now be there?
ANSWER:
It's funny, it's a feeling of excitement of opportunity more than anything. We'll recover over the next couple of days and then do what we always do. We'll review and then train to get better and now only two teams can win it, and we're one of them.

Bulldogs advance to first Grand Final in a decade

Tuesday, September 17, 2019 - 12:25 PM - by Chris Pike

SOUTH Fremantle delivered a strong preliminary final on its fourth straight attempt on Sunday afternoon to beat Claremont by 30 points at Fremantle Community Bank Oval to advance to the 2019 Grand Final.

The memories of the previous three preliminary final defeats for South Fremantle was something that was difficult to ignore as they played on the same day again for a fourth successive year, but the Bulldogs were more than up to the occasion this time around.

The first three quarters of the game saw the team kicking to the Fremantle Hospital end of the ground dominating the game. South Fremantle kicked the only three goals of the first quarter and then Claremont kicked the only three of the second term to lead narrowly at half-time.

Dent dreams of Grand Final with Bulldogs

Sunday, September 15, 2019 - 9:57 AM - by Chris Pike

GIVEN his football journey has been quite the rollercoaster ride and he even spent two years taking a break, Zac Dent is grasping every opportunity provided by South Fremantle and playing in a WAFL Grand Final would be a dream come true.

The now 23-year-old began his WAFL career having made the move up to the Perth to play colts at East Perth in 2014 and he was impressive as an inside midfielder racking up plenty of the ball.

It appeared a natural he would move into a league career with the Royals before long and he immediately adjusted well to playing senior football producing a tremendous 2015 season in the reserves.

Preliminary Final Preview v Claremont

Saturday, September 14, 2019 - 11:26 AM - by Chris Pike

SOUTH Fremantle is back in the WAFL preliminary final this Sunday against Claremont at Fremantle Community Bank Oval and is hoping it turns out to be fourth time lucky and a Grand Final berth is at the end of it.

For four straight seasons now, South Fremantle finished in second position on the ladder and ended up in a preliminary final.

The last three years haven’t gone to plan with a loss to Peel Thunder in 2016, to Subiaco in 2017 and then to West Perth in 2018. The loss last year to the Falcons was the most shocking and the biggest upset of the trio.

Coach Post Match – Todd Curley Second Semi-Final

Thursday, September 12, 2019 - 3:53 PM - by Chris Pike

WHAT South Fremantle coach Todd Curley had to say following the WAFL second semi-final defeat at the hands of Subiaco and now looking ahead to Sunday's preliminary final against Claremont at Fremantle Community Bank Oval.

QUESTION: As you found out, Subiaco only needs to dominate for a short period to blow you away?
ANSWER:
I thought they were only better than us really for one quarter to be honest. But they were probably better than us and a lot harder than us for most of the game. We never really got going and then a bit of ill-discipline and frustration bubbled over and they make you pay. But you earn a second chance and we'll have a look at it, work out the bits we need to get better in and train for it during the week.

Q: What did you make of the first half, neither team played that well and couldn’t put a score on board. Were you reasonably happy at half-time?
A:
I think if you look at it at half-time it was four goals each and it was a bit of an arm-wrestle. Even halfway through the third quarter there was still only a goal the difference, and we had a lot of guys who were down. We thought there was a lot more growth left in us but we just lost our way and our focus a bit, and they hurt us on the scoreboard pretty quickly.
