Opponents Form

After finishing in 2nd position on the ladder East Fremantle will be looking to maintain strong their form and deliver some quality football come Sunday, to topple the minor premiers in a bid to proceed directly through to the Grand Final. The Sharks have shown strong form and have shown their ability to control the footy and hit the scoreboard in recent weeks, coming off a win against Claremont in round 15 and edging out Subiaco in round 12.

Goal Kickers

When both teams met in round 12, Tarnee Tester was the only goal kicker for the day with three goals. Tester leads the WAFLW competition with the most goals kicked in the home-and-away season, so she Subiaco will be looking to feed her the ball and take advantage of her kick. Last week saw Tester and fellow forward Aimee Schmidt kick four majors.
