SFC 2015: Round Four Preview
- Friday, 10 April 2015
Subiaco will look to get their season back on track as West Perth visit Medibank Stadium on Saturday.
The Lions were flying high with two big wins in a row until co-tenants East Perth grounded the reigning premiers with a 65-point hiding on Good Friday.
The Falcons have been impressive but have arguably had an easier draw. After being out-played by South Fremantle in Round One the Joondalup based club have had convincing wins over Peel and Perth.
Round Four looms as a monumental chance for Subiaco and West Perth with both sides floating around the top four.
Subiaco youngster James Garcia pulls out some party tricks against East Perth last week.
PRESSURE IS KEY
Modern football revolves around pressure… and a lot of it. Last year the Lions were able to swell and pressure the ball carrier to force turnovers and control the momentum. They were able to do this in the first two rounds of 2015 but were out-played at their own game by East Perth last week.
FULL OF FRANKSTON
Saturday’s clash will feature three former players from VFL club Frankston… And there must be something in the water over there because they are all strong, hard-working players who have an x-factor. Subiaco’s Leigh Kitchin and Lachlan Delahunty have transitioned to Subiaco from the Dolphins over the last two years. Kitchin is a prolific inside midfielder and Delahunty is an athletic utility who can take big grabs. West Perth established their Frankston connection with the addition of forward Michael Lourey this year and he’s second in the league with 11 goals in his first three games as a Falcon.
