SOUTH Fremantle remains the form team in the WAFL this season and has enjoyed an impressive recent dominance over East Fremantle and at East Fremantle Oval, but this year's WA Day Foundation Derby has all the makings of a tremendous contest.

South Fremantle will take on East Fremantle in the annual WA Day Foundation Derby this holiday Monday at East Fremantle's New Choice Homes Park with bouncedown set for 2.10pm.

The Bulldogs come into the game having won five straight matches this WAFL season and six of seven overall during the opening eight rounds. On top of that, South Fremantle has won eight straight derbies and has been victorious on its last 10 trips to Shark Park.
