SOUTH Fremantle opens its 2017 McDonald's WAFL Premiership Season this Saturday against Subiaco at Fremantle Community Bank Oval with a twilight start time for the league clash of 4.15pm.
The Bulldogs and Lions finished in the top two positions at the end of last year's home and away season before meeting in the second semi-final, and Saturday's clash is sure to be an exciting way to start the 2017 season for both clubs.
It will be the first of a four-game twilight start time trial by the Bulldogs.
