Hard running, courageous Bewick reaches 100 WAFL games

Saturday, April 8, 2017 - 1:40 PM - by Chris Pike

THERE might have been times when it didn’t look like South Fremantle wingman Shaun Bewick would reach 100 WAFL games, but perseverance and hard work has paid off as he reaches the mark this Saturday against West Perth.

It's only fitting that Bewick reaches the milestone against the club that he began his career with alongside twin brother Rohan and where his family has such a strong history including his father Cory and uncle Darren.

Bewick never thought of anything else aside from playing with West Perth and made his league debut in 2009 but after just 30 games to his credit up until the end of 2011 he felt a fresh change was needed.

SOUTH Fremantle returns to Fremantle Community Bank Oval on Saturday for a twilight fixture against West Perth looking to build on the momentum from last week's win over Peel Thunder.

Player Column – Tim Kelly Round 4

Friday, April 7, 2017 - 8:09 AM - by Tim Kelly

WE were very disappointed with our efforts against Swan Districts so to bounce back the way we did on Saturday was great. Hopefully we can keep that going now.

We play West Perth this week and it's always a great game against them. You know they will always be competitive so I'm looking forward to that challenge. They have some great ball winners in their midfield and we've got great ball winners for us as well. Most weeks now you get great midfield battles so this Saturday will be another one.

It was definitely good to have Hocks back on Saturday for his first game of this year. Obviously he came across last year and just made himself right at home here and led us from the front. It was great having him back on the weekend.

QUESTION: You must have been happy with the way they bounced back from last week's loss to Swan Districts?
ANSWER:
They've been a pretty consistent group the last 12 months or so and they were really disappointed last week with aspects of the game and I thought the response was pretty strong.

Bulldogs bounce back in style downing Thunder

Tuesday, April 4, 2017 - 1:57 PM - by Chris Pike

SOUTH Fremantle bounced back from a loss last week to end the winning run of reigning premiers Peel Thunder with an impressive 43-point win at Bendigo Bank Stadium on Saturday.

Peel came into the game having not lost since Round 22 last year. The Thunder went on to win the last five games of 2016 on the way to a maiden premiership before impressive wins to start 2017 against East Perth and East Fremantle.

That meant they were full of confidence heading into Saturday's clash at home to South Fremantle who they beat in last year's preliminary final.

Round 3 Preview v Peel Thunder

Friday, March 31, 2017 - 4:48 PM - by Chris Pike

SOUTH Fremantle started the season so impressively and now after a hiccup last week will look to bounce back hard this Saturday against Peel Thunder in Mandurah.

The Bulldogs were tremendous in Round 1 against Subiaco winning by 39 points before an inaccurate and inefficient performance against Swan Districts last week.

However, South Fremantle now heads to Bendigo Bank Stadium looking to rebound straightaway up against a Peel team coming off winning the 2016 premiership and who has now won seven games in-a-row.

Player Column – Cory Dell'Olio Round 3

Thursday, March 30, 2017 - 4:44 PM - by Cory Dell\\\'Olio

I HAVE to admit a big reason I was determined to return with South Fremantle this year was to play on with Adam Guglielmana. He is one of my best mates and I was looking forward to that, but unfortunately he has decided to retire and he definitely deserves some recognition.

I really wanted to come back to finish off my career with SFFC as I have some good friends at the club and the place means a lot to me. I was super excited to play with one of my best mates this year in Googs but he unfortunately retired just before pre-season. Now I have to hang out with Brock Higgins and that’s not ideal. 

On the topic, not much has been said about Adam’s retirement and I think that’s the way he would like it but he deserves a lot of credit for a great career he had. He put everything into his time here at SFFC both on and off the field and is a great role model for a lot of young guys coming up through the ranks. On another positive for Adam he has really taken a liking to the retirement life and his bench press has gone down from a max of 35kg to a stunning 20kg but he's happy and that’s the main thing.

Swans make inefficient Bulldogs pay

Tuesday, March 28, 2017 - 1:53 PM - by Chris Pike

SOUTH Fremantle kicked the first goal of the game but from there inaccuracy and missed opportunities set in with Swan Districts ending up 21-point winners at Steel Blue Oval.

The Bulldogs started the season in impressive fashion beating Subiaco at Fremantle Community Bank Oval by 39 points.

South Fremantle then started encouragingly against Swans at Bassendean with the first goal through Blaine Johnson. But they then kicked seven first quarter behinds from there and never really recovered.
