MONAGHAN EXPECTS FALCONS FIVE TO HAVE BIG SAY IN STATE GAME

Saturday, May 27, 2017 - 12:01 AM - by Chris Pike

WEST Perth coach Bill Monaghan has no question that any success the WAFL has against the VFL in the state game on Saturday will be significantly influenced by the five West Perth players in the side.

The WAFL will attempt to make history on Saturday by taking on the VFL in the 2017 state match at Port Melbourne's North Port Oval.

In 24 previous attempts, Victoria has beaten Western Australia in each and every one of the state matches played in Melbourne.

IN THEIR WORDS – KODY MANNING STATE GAME

Friday, May 26, 2017 - 9:58 AM - by Kody Manning

WELL we are in Melbourne getting ready for the state game and it's pretty exciting to be honest. To be a part of such a quality bunch of players and getting to know new people that end up being long term mates make it a great experience.

It's the second time I've been lucky enough to play in Melbourne after playing in a Foxtel Cup game at Etihad Stadium a few years ago. That was a good game for us, to face one of the best VFL teams around. To test our skills against what they had to offer definitely was an experience that helped a lot of the boys. Even better coming away with a win.

To be honest nothing changes for me coming into the state game compared to what I try and do every other week at West Perth. I'll still do everything I would normally do before a game at home, only thing that's different is obviously where we are playing this weekend.

FALCONS MAKE IT FOUR STRAIGHT WITH WIN OVER SHARKS

Monday, May 8, 2017 - 11:57 PM - by Chris Pike

WEST Perth's winning form continued at East Fremantle Oval on Saturday with the Falcons scoring a fourth straight victory to move clear in fourth position on the WAFL ladder with the bye this week.

West Perth came into the clash at East Fremantle Oval on the back of a three-game winning streak since a 103-point loss to South Fremantle, so they had plenty of momentum up against the winless Sharks.

But East Fremantle had been competitive and been in the contest the previous three weeks against Perth, Swan Districts and South Fremantle, and also had the added motivation with the 150th game of loyal servant Andrew Stephen to try and win for as he earned life membership of the club.
