Last Meeting – Round 3, 2012 at Fremantle Oval
South Fremantle 15.15 (105) def by Subiaco 18.5 (133)
SUBIACO remain a mathematical chance of playing finals football but will need to win all of their remaining fixtures and hope results fall their way if they are to feature in September.
The Lions, who lost to Peel Thunder last week, can ill-afford to look further than South Fremantle this weekend.
South Fremantle sit bottom of the ladder with three wins under rookie coach Paul Haselby..
Subiaco have a 6-8 record and sit three wins outside the top four.
Subiaco defeated South Fremantle 18.5 (113) to 15.15 (105) when these teams met back in round three en route to their four straight wins to start the season.
The Bulldogs have won three games this season over Perth, Peel Thunder and West Perth.
The win over Perth on the back of a barnstorming fourth quarter to win 19.14 (128) to 19.6 (120).
Subiaco’s away wins over East Fremantle and East Perth have neutralised by home losses to Claremont and Peel Thunder.
South Fremantle fell just three-points short of a West Perth double when they went down 15.12 (102) to 15.15 (105) last weekend.
Subiaco’s run home includes South Fremantle, Swan Districts, West Perth, East Perth, Peel Thunder and Claremont.
If they were able to win all of those matches they would need West Perth to lose their next two fixtures against Claremont and East Fremantle, and then East Perth to lose their round 23 and 24 matches against East Fremantle and West Perth.
Assuming those results fell into place Subiaco would sneak into fourth place half a win ahead of the Royals and Falcons as a result of their drawn derby.
East Fremantle would sit top on 64 points, Claremont second with 60, Swans on 52, Subiaco on 48 and West Perth and East Perth 46.
