Vale Laurie Flanders

Thursday, August 9, 2018 - 2:06 PM

THE South Fremantle Football Club is mourning the passing of Life Member Laurie Flanders.

Laurie played a huge role in developing the mental strength and confidence of our players for nearly 30 years as the club’s boxing coach.

He also added character and humour to the whole environment of our off-field fitness and medical team down in the changerooms and he will be sorely missed by all that were associated with him at the Bulldogs.

Our thoughts are with his wife Pat, daughter Kelli, son Neil and their families.

Coach Post Match – Todd Curley Round 18

Thursday, August 9, 2018 - 12:51 AM - by Chris Pike

WHAT South Fremantle coach Todd Curley had to say following Saturday's Round 18 WAFL win over West Perth at Fremantle Community Bank Oval as he discusses Ashton Hams' milestone, Shane Hockey, Noah Strom, Andrew Strijk and much more.

QUESTION: That was an important win for a number of reasons against an in-form West Perth?
ANSWER: It was probably less about the day and more about the importance of us getting back to playing our brand of footy, and what's made us a pretty consistent team the last few years. I thought we did that and our pressure was right back up. To have more possessions, more tackles and keep them to less than 40 inside 50s is much closer to what it looks like when we are playing at our best.

Q: After losses to Subiaco and Peel, it was important to bounce back?
We were just trying to get back and play our way. It's important for the whole group that when you haven’t been going that well, you can forget what it feels like when you do play well. We had some real energy from the start, our pressure was pretty good and we definitely left a few opportunities out there in the second quarter and should have been further in front at half-time. But they're a good team and they've had a really good run. It was good to get the four points for us and to get the feeling like we're back on track.

Hockey named WAFL Player of Round 18

Wednesday, August 8, 2018 - 2:25 PM - by Chris Pike

SHANE Hockey delivered what was likely the best performance his career with South Fremantle in Saturday's win against West Perth and as a result he was named WAFL Player of the Round.

While his teammates Haiden Schloithe, Nick Suban, Marlion Pickett, Brandon Donaldson, Ryan Cook and Jacob Dragovich, and West Perth opponents Shane Nelson, Luke Meadows, Aaron Black and Trent Manzone all had significant impacts, it was Hockey that delivered what was likely the best performance of his WAFL career since joining South Fremantle in 2016.

It was a big game for South Fremantle who was coming off the bye and disappointing losses to Subiaco and Peel Thunder, and they were without captain Dylan Main and the versatile Steve Verrier on top of triple Bernie Naylor Medallist Ben Saunders.

Verrier eyes big second half of season for Bulldogs

Thursday, June 28, 2018 - 12:54 PM - by Chris Pike

HE is one of South Fremantle's great weapons with his flexibility and versatility, and Bulldogs hard man Steve Verrier is looking forward to the second half of the WAFL season both personally and for his team.

Verrier has now played 78 matches with South Fremantle, 77 of which have been since returning to the Bulldogs after spending two years at Richmond in the AFL, and remains an important player given his toughness, versatility and ability to virtually play in any position on the field.

He did battle injuries in 2017 limiting him to 14 matches on the back of a standout 2016 season where he played all 23 games, including all three finals culminating in the preliminary final, and finished third in fairest and best voting to Shane Hockey and Marlion Pickett.

Coach Post Match – Todd Curley Round 11

Thursday, June 21, 2018 - 7:31 AM - by Chris Pike

WHAT South Fremantle coach Todd Curley had to say following the Round 11 WAFL victory for the Bulldogs over Peel Thunder despite the absence of Ben Saunders, Mason Shaw, Blaine Johnson and Shane Hockey ahead of the Round 12 bye and Round 13 clash with East Perth.

QUESTION: Coming off the loss last week and then being without a host of key players, you'd have to be happy with that performance?
We were really pleased. It was a bit of an arm-wrestle there for the first 15 minutes, then we were able to get a bit of score on board which was reward for working pretty hard early. We were really pleased and we did run out of gas a bit late with a few sore boys and Mason hurting himself 30 seconds before the first bounce and pretty much playing no part. But across the board I thought it was a pretty even performance and some of our leaders, like Schloithe and Suban, really stood up for us.

Bulldogs bite back with strong win over Thunder

Tuesday, June 19, 2018 - 1:55 PM - by Chris Pike
SOUTH Fremantle shook off a surprise loss to Perth and the absence of half its forward-line and a key midfielder to put in a dominant display to beat Peel Thunder by 35 points at Fremantle Community Bank Oval on Saturday.
South Fremantle and Peel were meeting for the first time in 2018 on Saturday at Fremantle Community Bank Oval and having met in each of the past two WAFL finals series, they are two teams that have built up a bit of a rivalry in recent times.
The Bulldogs also needed to bounce back from lost two of their previous three matches against Claremont and Perth with a big WA Day Foundation Derby win thrown in there over East Fremantle. Read More ...

Round 11 Preview v Peel Thunder

Saturday, June 16, 2018 - 7:24 AM - by Chris Pike

SOUTH Fremantle is back home to Fremantle Community Bank Oval on Saturday to take on Peel Thunder for the first time in 2018 needing a win to consolidate second position on the WAFL ladder.

Two of the past six clashes between South Fremantle and Peel Thunder have come during the finals series of the past two years so the clubs are on stranger to take on one another with plenty on the line, and that's certainly the case at Fremantle Community Bank Oval on Saturday.

South Fremantle comes into the game in second position on the WAFL ladder still a game and percentage clear of the third placed West Perth.

Bulldogs run out of bark against Demons

Tuesday, June 12, 2018 - 2:52 PM - by Chris Pike
SOUTH Fremantle ran out of gas after leading by 20 points early in the last quarter against Perth on Saturday at Lathlain Park to lose by six points in a first defeat at the hands of the Demons in over four years.
That last win for Perth over South Fremantle was way back in Round 2, 2014 when Kris Miller was celebrating his 300th WAFL appearance under lights at Fremantle Community Bank Oval.
Perth produced a stunning comeback from 44 points down that night to score a stirring win. It didn't quite spark a rise up the ladder the Demons were hoping then, but they will be hoping to build on the momentum from Saturday's performance now. Read More ...

Round 10 Preview v Perth

Friday, June 8, 2018 - 8:49 PM - by Chris Pike

SOUTH Fremantle has still not lost to Perth since Kris Miller's 300th game and hasn’t lost at Lathlain Park in five years heading into Saturday's WAFL Round 10 clash against the Demons.

South Fremantle consolidated second position on the WAFL ladder with a 73-point WA Day Foundation Derby win as the Bulldogs now head to Lathlain Park where they have won five straight and up against an opponent in the Demons who they have won eight in-a-row against.

Perth might have won just two games so far in 2018 to be sitting in second last position on the ladder, but that doesn't quite tell the whole story of the competitiveness of the Demons.
