ROUND 3 WAFLW PREVIEW v CLAREMONT

Friday, July 31, 2020 - 4:21 PM by Chris Pike

SOUTH Fremantle's women will host their third straight game on Sunday at Fremantle Community Bank Oval, this time welcoming Claremont as they begin life in the WAFL Women's competition.

South Fremantle was granted its entry into the WAFL Women's competition just on the eve of the 2020 WAFLW Premiership Season getting underway after being delayed due to the COVID-19 global pandemic.

It hasn’t been the start to life in the new competition that the Bulldogs wanted with losses at home to East Fremantle and Peel Thunder, but Sunday afternoon presents another opportunity against Claremont.

BETTER BULLDOGS SIGNS DESPITE FINAL SCORE

The league game gets underway on Sunday at 2pm and that follows on from the reserves contest also between South Fremantle and Claremont that begins at 12pm after the Youth Girls Rogers Cup contest bounces down at 10.15am. 

All three games will take place on Sunday at Fremantle Community Bank Oval.

The game will conclude Round 3 of the WAFLW competition on Sunday afternoon at Fremantle Community Bank Oval with South Fremantle desperate to find a way to compete against Claremont.

South Fremantle's life in the WAFLW competition has seen them start with two scoreless outings to lose to East Fremantle by 88 points and Peel Thunder by 64.

It won't get any easier this week against a Claremont team who only narrowly lost to Subiaco by two points before recording a strong 21-point win over Swan Districts last Sunday.

South Fremantle has made another five changes from the team that lost to Peel last Sunday in the search for a more competitive group to take on Claremont with.

Hunter Cronin, Tahlia Dawson-Gibbs, Cali Hunt, Kara Turley and Maya Tyrrell are the players to come into the team for the Bulldogs to take on the Tigers on Sunday down at the port.

The players to lose their place in the South Fremantle side for the Round 3 contest are Ebony Clarkson, Sarah du Plessis, Tara Garlett, Tasha McAlpine and Ella Sanders.

There are plenty of changes for Claremont as well despite the Tigers fresh off a strong win against Swan Districts last Sunday.

Adele Arnup, Samantha Barnett, Mhicca Carter and Krstel Petrevski are the players to come into the Claremont line-up with Dianna Evans, Karisma Nash, Andie Payne and Amanda Robertson out of the side to face the Bulldogs.
