Subiaco are looking to stay undefeated this Sunday as the Demons visit Medibank Stadium.
The Lions have won their first three against 2015 WAFL finalists and now set their sights on a rejuvenated Perth side.
The boys from Lathlain Park finished last in the competition in 2015 but managed an emphatic win over the Claremont Tigers last week.
Earl Spalding has helped the Demons lift their intensity and effort and they’ll be looking to stay competitive against the reigning premiers.
Subiaco won both outings between the sides last year but they didn’t exactly go to plan for the Maroon & Gold. The Demons managed to frustrate the Lions in Round 7, 2015; holding Subiaco to 8.15 63; their 3rd lowest score of the year.
It was a lesson in complacency that head coach Jarrad Schofield made emphasis of; and the same emphasis will apply this week.

KEEP YOUR EYE ON MCKENNA
Although his Demon teammate Aidan Tropiano took home the Sandover Medal last year many would argue that Liam Mckenna has become the heart of the Perth Football Club. Mckenna is leading from the front and played a telling role in the Demons 17 point win over the Tigers last week. The Dees skipper gathered 28 disposals, seven inside 50’s and kicked two goals. The Lions will have to keep Mckenna on lock-down.
The two sides have met a grand total of 331 times since their inclusions to the WAFL and amazingly; there has never been a draw. Perth narrowly holds the historic ledger with 168 wins to Subiaco’s 163 wins. The Lions recent dominance has significantly closed the gap between the teams.
BARK IN THE PARK
SFC is holding Bark In The Park on Sunday, which encourages spectators to bring their dogs to Medibank Stadium. This event is Supporting Guide Dogs WA and Dogs Refuge Home. Sponsored by City Farmers.
