House Defends Grandly

Tuesday, August 27, 2013 - 2:39 PM

A reorganised Claremont defence (with regular full-back Luke Rosher and in-form half-back flanker Jack Beeck promoted for the first time to the reserves side and talented centre-half-back Rowen Powell out with a damaged shoulder) came under extreme pressure and had to withstand a concerted Perth attack early in the match at Lathlain Park on Saturday.

It was a severe test that the revamped defence came through with flying colours and the outstanding work of the Read More [+]

Jones Is A Vital Cog

Tuesday, August 27, 2013 - 11:59 AM

Long gone are the days when full-forwards notched century tallies of goals season after season. Football has developed into a sport which demands a strong involvement from all members of the side. It requires uncompromising commitment, versatility and unselfish team play.

And exemplifying that sort of discipline and an undertaking to share the load was Claremont full-forward Chad Jones in the match against Perth at Lathlain Park on Saturday.

Jones booted three goals to take Read More [+]

Star footballers are often referred to as Rolls Royce performers, but it was a sleek Bentley of the Maximillian variety who gave a turbo-charged display and provided the highlight of Claremont’s runaway 118-point thrashing of bottom side Swan Districts at Claremont Oval on Saturday.

Max Bentley exploded into action to dominate the third quarter in which he booted four of his side’s five goals.

No, the 18-year-old Bentley is not a key forward. He produced Read More [+]

Wednesday, August 21, 2013 - 2:48 PM

Claremont continued their powerful march into the finals with an emphatic 59-point demolition of Swan Districts at Claremont Oval on Saturday when the Tigers restricted the Swans to just 9.11 in fine conditions.

There were numerous reasons for this modest total. One was the return to action of Trinity Handley, who excelled in his battle against dangerous Swans key forward Tim Geappen, restricting him to just one goal, a snap early in the third quarter.
