South Fremantle Women's Team Review

Wednesday, June 12, 2019 - 10:50 AM

A great effort was made on Saturday night for both female teams to come away with wins in some seriously trying conditions, that at times looked more like water polo than football.

It was a real credit to both teams in the way that they played out the game, neither side wanted to miss out on the 4 points and Subiaco took on the Bulldogs right to the end. 

Full credit goes to the backline who held up and repelled the ball all night.   Read More [+]

Coach Post Match – Todd Curley Round 11

Wednesday, June 12, 2019 - 12:50 AM - by Chris Pike

WHAT South Fremantle coach Todd Curley had to say following the Round 11 WAFL loss to Subiaco and looking ahead to this Saturday clash at Fremantle Community Bank Oval against the West Coast Eagles.

QUESTION: You haven’t been in this position for a long time, probably last year's preliminary final where you've lost a game quite comfortably. What did you make of it?
ANSWER:
We've been pretty good for a while but whether or not we rolled into the game, I'm not sure, but we certainly didn’t adjust early and made some silly mistakes which allowed them to score early. Then we were playing catch up from there. They were probably much better and harder at the footy than us for the majority of the game, but I thought our boys in the second half hung in there and kept fighting. But at the end of the day, I think the scoreboard is a pretty good reflection of the game.

Q: They played in a really wet game too two weeks ago and handled it well while you haven’t played in a game that wet all year, did that have any sort of impact?
A:
Maybe, I don’t know. But we made a lot of simple skill errors, dropped marks and didn’t adjust to the conditions. Even right to the end there were some mistakes being made that were about not adjusting to the conditions. But we've got a lot of young guys playing and a lot of guys who haven’t played much footy so that's to be expected against a really experienced group. Our guys will learn a lot.

Brad Hardie joins Australian Football Hall of Fame

Wednesday, June 5, 2019 - 8:34 AM - by Chris Pike

ALREADY acknowledged with inductions into the West Australian Football and South Fremantle Football Club Halls of Fame, Bulldogs champion Brad Hardie cemented his legacy forever by entering the Australian Football Hall of Fame on Tuesday night.

It is the ultimate recognition for one of South Fremantle's favourite sons who burst onto the scene in the Mighty Red V as a teenager and was a premiership player in 1980 as just a 17-year-old where he kicked three goals on the Grand Final win over Swan Districts.

Hardie would go on to win South Fremantle's fairest and best in 1982 and was captain by 1984 while winning the Simpson Medal as WA's best player in the 1984 State of Origin clash with Victoria in 1984.

South Fremantle Women's Team Review

Tuesday, June 4, 2019 - 5:02 PM

SATURDAY saw more great games by both female teams on what felt more like Spring rather than a Winter's day. 

Unfortunately the South Fremantle Reserves were beaten by a senior East Fremantle team with better ball control on the day. 

Coach Jason Elliott was happy with the way the girls played to the game plan and could see what the team had been working on in training.  Read More [+]

Brave Bulldogs continue derby domination

Tuesday, June 4, 2019 - 2:31 PM - by Chris Pike

SOUTH Fremantle had to overcome a 22-point deficit and the loss of three key players to dominate the second half of the WA Day Foundation Derby on Monday to beat East Fremantle by 32 points.

The 2019 WA Day Foundation Derby took place at East Fremantle's New Choice Homes Park and the challenge was firmly put in front of South Fremantle when the Sharks started the game well and the injuries mounted for the Bulldogs.

But South Fremantle would kick 10 goals to three in the second half and the only five goals of the final term to run out 16.7 (103) to 10.11 (71) victors. Read More [+]

SOUTH Fremantle is back in action following the gutsy WA Day Foundation Derby win heading to Mandurah on Saturday following the bye to take on Peel Thunder in Round 10 of the 2019 WAFL season.

In the end, the win was a sixth straight this season for South Fremantle to see them head into last week's bye with a 7-1 record on the season.

Suban the hero as Bulldogs snatch win from Thunder

Tuesday, June 4, 2019 - 12:00 AM - by Chris Pike

SOUTH Fremantle ensured it will go into this Saturday's clash with Subiaco with plenty of momentum after Nick Suban kicked a stunning match-winner to beat a Peel Thunder side he won two premierships with on Saturday.

South Fremantle went to Mandurah's David Grays Arena on Saturday as the form team in the WAFL having won six straight matches heading into a bye in Round 10, while Peel was attempting to avoid a fourth successive defeat.

The Bulldogs were on top most of the afternoon despite the absence of Haiden Schloithe, Shaun Bewick and Brandon Donaldson in what was Brock Higgins' 100th WAFL appearance for the Mighty Red V.

Match-winner all part of career-best Zac Strom form

Sunday, June 2, 2019 - 10:21 PM - by Chris Pike

QUIETLY Zac Strom has turned himself into one of South Fremantle's most important and versatile players, and now as he nears becoming a 100-game WAFL player he can add match-winner to his resume after Saturday's win against East Perth.

Because of his unobtrusive and soften spoken nature, Strom had quietly gone about building a 92-game WAFL career now with South Fremantle that began with a debut in Round 16, 2013.

Along the way ever since, Strom has seen his time split between being a lockdown key defender, a centre half-back or a hard-leading centre half-forward along with being a more than handy backup ruckman with his size and mobility.
