Higgo's Heroes returns in 2018 starting with Dylan Main

Friday, May 25, 2018 - 12:24 PM

HIGGO'S Heroes is back for 2018 and the first episode features South Fremantle ruckman Brock Higgins catching up with new Bulldogs captain Dylan Main.

Higgo's Heroes has become a hit since Higgins replaced Craig White who started the concept for South Fremantle with his Whitey's Whispers regular program.

Higgins has become a popular figure at South Fremantle since arriving from East Perth in 2014 and the last two years coinciding with his career-best form as one of the WAFL's leading ruckmen, he's also played host to Higgo's Heroes.

Coach Post Match – Todd Curley Round 7

Thursday, May 24, 2018 - 3:14 PM - by Chris Pike

WHAT South Fremantle coach Todd Curley had to say following the Round 7 WAFL victory by 68 points at Leederville Oval over East Perth that was a fifth on the trot for the Bulldogs. 

QUESTION: You'd have to be pleased to come away with such a good win against a team who had been on a four-game winning run like you were?
ANSWER:
I thought especially after quarter-time I thought we were pretty consistent for the rest of the game. There were a few things we needed to tinker with at quarter-time because we thought they had probably scored a bit too easy in the first quarter. We thought we fixed that up after quarter-time and were pleased.

Q: Brock Higgins backed up his State game performance with another big effort against his former team?
A:
It was a big challenge too. McInnes has been a really important player for them and Brock has pretty good for us. He gave us first use and he was a good player. It was fantastic for him to play State footy, he's been a great servant for us and he is a really consistent player. It was great to see him rewarded.

Bulldogs bite Royals to make it five straight

Tuesday, May 22, 2018 - 12:26 PM - by Chris Pike
SOUTH Fremantle made it five straight wins this WAFL season and delivered a dominant performance kicking 12 of the last 13 goals at Leederville Oval on Saturday to beat East Perth by 68 points.
 
Prior to last week's State game that saw the KIA WAFL State Team head to Adelaide Oval and defeat the SANFL by 26 points for WA's first win in Adelaide since 1994, both East Perth and South Fremantle were in tremendous form.
 
The Royals and Bulldogs both lost their opening games of 2018 to Subiaco but had gone on to win four straight matches following that heading into the break for the State game. Read More ...

Round 7 Preview v East Perth

Saturday, May 19, 2018 - 8:47 AM - by Chris Pike

SOUTH Fremantle heads to Leederville Oval on Saturday to take on an in-form East Perth with the equally on fire Bulldogs out to make it five consecutive WAFL wins to secure second position on the ladder.

It shapes as a tantalising match up between two teams who were in terrific form prior to last week's break for the State game when the Royals and Bulldogs meet at Leederville Oval on Saturday.

East Perth and South Fremantle both started their respective seasons with losses to Subiaco but since then neither has suffered defeats and have won four games in succession.

Player Column – Brock Higgins State Game

Thursday, May 17, 2018 - 11:02 AM - by Brock Higgins

LOOKING back on everything to do with the State game last week, it was one of the best experiences I've had in footy. 

At the start it can be a bit awkward at training and getting to know the blokes, but as the week built last week and we spent more time together, you get to know everyone a bit better and the excitement comes into the group about what you are attempting to do. Then the whole trip over there to go somewhere different and play on Adelaide Oval, which is a pretty massive thing, before a Showdown is huge. 

Then it's a strange one because you are playing against a team who you have no idea who anyone is and they don't know us, and we don’t usually play together. So it was a funny thing but it was a great experience and afterwards getting that win was just amazing with all the WA boys. The night that ensued was pretty good as well.

Johnson, Higgins instrumental in WAFL win over SANFL

Monday, May 14, 2018 - 4:19 PM - by Chris Pike
BLAINE Johnson and Brock Higgins were both playing their first games for Western Australia and were strong contributors in the eventual 26-point victory against South Australia at Adelaide Oval.
 
Due to a combination of withdrawing through not being 100 per cent fit and missing out on final selection, Johnson and Higgins were the last two South Fremantle left to make the final WAFL team of 23 ahead of Nick Suban, Ashton Hams, Haiden Schloithe, Ben Saunders, Marlion Pickett and Ryan Cook.
 
It was a drought-breaking win for the WAFL in Adelaide as well Johnson and Higgins played significant roles in that final result. Read More ...

Bulldogs keep winning with strong win over Swans

Tuesday, May 8, 2018 - 1:27 PM - by Chris Pike
DESPITE missing some key players and with Swan Districts providing a good test, South Fremantle continued its impressive form to score a fourth straight win by 14 points at Fremantle Community Bank Oval on Saturday.
 
South Fremantle and Swan Districts both played finals in 2017 and aside from a loss to Subiaco apiece in the opening five rounds, had largely been quite impressive to start 2018 heading into Saturday's clash at Fremantle Community Bank Oval.
 
The Bulldogs also had to deal with the absence of key players Haiden Schloithe, Ashton Hams, Blayne Wilson and Steven Edwards with Tom Vandeleur, Jarrod Parry and Brendan Verrier already sidelined, but their depth came through against the black-and-whites. Read More ...

Coach Post Match – Todd Curley Round 6

Tuesday, May 8, 2018 - 5:25 AM - by Chris Pike

WHAT South Fremantle coach Todd Curley had to say following the Bulldogs' 13-point Round 6 WAFL victory against Swan Districts to give them four straight wins heading into the State Game break.

QUESTION: Swan Districts kept challenging you all day, but you kept responding too so I think you'll be really happy with that result?
ANSWER:
We were rapt. Obviously towards the end we conceded a bit more score than we would have liked but we had some challenges with personnel and then Saundo got a bit sore so we took him out. We had a few underdone as well and had seven blokes with 15 games or less. That shows good signs for the future there and Glenn Byron in his first game was good. We have some really young kids out there and I thought our leaders stood up as well so it was good.
