WAFL Grand Final Match Preview: South Fremantle

Thursday, September 19, 2019 - 9:06 AM

After winning the 2nd semi-final against South Fremantle at Leederville Oval two weeks ago, Subiaco will head to the Grand Final this weekend in a 2nd semi-final rematch when they take on South Fremantle this Sunday at Optus Stadium with bounce down at 2:40 pm. 

Be there to support the Lions, or if you can't make it to the game keep an eye on Subiaco’s social media channels for updates across the day and if you cannot make it to the game.  The game will be live on Channel 7. 


With Subiaco coming off a week's break, they will be looking to get back on the field and maintain their strong form which they have shown throughout the entire season, to get the win and become back2back premiers.  Monday saw Subiaco’s Lachlan Delahunty taking out the 2019 Sandover medal and with the Lions heading into their 6th consecutive WAFL Grand Final, Subiaco will bring their A-game as they take on a fierce South Fremantle. The last game was a tough arm-wrestle for all four quarters, less a 12 minute period in the third quarter. 

Back 2 Back

Subiaco will be looking to win the premiership this week and become back2back premiers. After last year’s impressive season going undefeated, Subiaco played against West Perth in the 2018 Grand Final which saw them bring home a 81-point win and the 2018 premiership cup. 

Oppositions Form

South Fremantle have had an impressive season so far to date, and have shown their ability to move the ball effectively and hit the scoreboard scoring over 250 goals so far this season. South Fremantle  have been the only team to beat Subiaco since the 2017 Grand Final with the Bulldogs winning in Round 6 this Premiership Season. Subiaco are prepared to battle it out in what should be an impressive and tight game of football.

Goal Kickers

A strong performance in the 2nd semi-final saw Subiaco come away with a 34 point win, with the Club's first two goals kicked by Ben Sokol following a strong four goal performance by Rhys Waters.  Having kicked six goals in just 12 minutes, the Lions forward line have proved their ability to get the ball into their forward 50 and convert effectivly.


Subiaco’s defensive have been strong throughout the season, highlighted by Jordan Lockyer making the TABtouch Team of the Year and have limited the opposition hitting the scoreboard throughout the year. The defensive line will once again be looking to work together to limit the Bulldog's forward 50 entires and maintain defensive pressure.
