Sixth-placed Claremont and seventh-placed East Perth will both be aiming to end losing streaks when they clash at Claremont Oval on Saturday.

The Tigers, who had a bye in round 18, will be aiming to end their three-game losing streak and record their first win since round 14, while the Royals enter the game on the back of consecutive losses.

With finals fast approaching, a fierce contest is set to unfold as both teams aim to record their seventh win of the season.

The WAFL’s ‘Real Men Wear Pink’ round, supporting breast cancer research, will be held across all four League games this Saturday, July 29.

The round will be played in partnership with the National Breast Cancer Foundation’s ‘Real Men Wear Pink’ campaign and expands on last year’s initiative by the Claremont Football Club to support the cause by playing in a jumper with a pink sash instead of the club’s traditional yellow.

All home teams across the four League games will also wear pink socks.

'Get Pinked' marquees at each ground will offer face painting, hair spray, temporary tattoos and merchandise so fans can show their support and help raise funds for the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF).
 
Through the Real Men Wear Pink campaign, NBCF hopes to raise more than $1.5 million through community support, to fund breast cancer research.
