Bernie Naylor enters Australian Football Hall of Fame

Thursday, May 31, 2018 - 7:47 AM

WHILE the Victorian media might be proclaiming him the John Coleman of Western Australia, make no mistake Bernie Naylor's goalkicking exploits came first and the South Fremantle legend took his rightful place in the Australian Football Hall of Fame this week.

The goalkicking feats of Naylor are legendary and he ended up kicking 1034 goals for South Fremantle in 194 matches between 1941 and 1954, with a four-year gap because of World War II.

While kicking a record 23 goals in a game along the way, he was six-time league leading goalkicker, nine-time South Fremantle leading goalkicker and a fairest and best winner in 1953.

Bulldogs downed by Tigers on last goal of the game

Tuesday, May 29, 2018 - 3:34 PM - by Chris Pike

SOUTH Fremantle kept fighting and drew level late in the game against Claremont at Fremantle Community Bank Oval on Saturday but the Bulldogs couldn't quite win a sixth straight game with the Tigers kicking the game's last goal to win by six points.

South Fremantle came into Saturday's contest having both won five straight matches this WAFL season and having won the last four against Claremont including earlier this season already in a country fixture in Albany.

Claremont came into the game with just the one win for the season and that was with the last kick of the game against East Fremantle, but the Tigers were a vastly more competitive outfit than that all suggested.

SOUTH Fremantle is back to Fremantle Community Bank Oval this Saturday to take on the struggling Claremont with the Bulldogs looking to make it six straight wins this WAFL season and five on the trot against the Tigers.

South Fremantle is back home at Fremantle Community Bank Oval having won five straight matches and having not tasted defeat since its opening match of the 2018 season.

That sees the Bulldogs sitting pretty in second position on the WAFL ladder with a 5-1 record following the wins against West Perth, East Fremantle, Claremont, Swan Districts and East Perth.

Higgo's Heroes returns in 2018 starting with Dylan Main

Friday, May 25, 2018 - 12:24 PM

HIGGO'S Heroes is back for 2018 and the first episode features South Fremantle ruckman Brock Higgins catching up with new Bulldogs captain Dylan Main.

Higgo's Heroes has become a hit since Higgins replaced Craig White who started the concept for South Fremantle with his Whitey's Whispers regular program.

Higgins has become a popular figure at South Fremantle since arriving from East Perth in 2014 and the last two years coinciding with his career-best form as one of the WAFL's leading ruckmen, he's also played host to Higgo's Heroes.

Coach Post Match – Todd Curley Round 7

Thursday, May 24, 2018 - 3:14 PM - by Chris Pike

WHAT South Fremantle coach Todd Curley had to say following the Round 7 WAFL victory by 68 points at Leederville Oval over East Perth that was a fifth on the trot for the Bulldogs. 

QUESTION: You'd have to be pleased to come away with such a good win against a team who had been on a four-game winning run like you were?
ANSWER:
I thought especially after quarter-time I thought we were pretty consistent for the rest of the game. There were a few things we needed to tinker with at quarter-time because we thought they had probably scored a bit too easy in the first quarter. We thought we fixed that up after quarter-time and were pleased.

Q: Brock Higgins backed up his State game performance with another big effort against his former team?
A:
It was a big challenge too. McInnes has been a really important player for them and Brock has pretty good for us. He gave us first use and he was a good player. It was fantastic for him to play State footy, he's been a great servant for us and he is a really consistent player. It was great to see him rewarded.

Bulldogs bite Royals to make it five straight

Tuesday, May 22, 2018 - 12:26 PM - by Chris Pike
SOUTH Fremantle made it five straight wins this WAFL season and delivered a dominant performance kicking 12 of the last 13 goals at Leederville Oval on Saturday to beat East Perth by 68 points.
 
Prior to last week's State game that saw the KIA WAFL State Team head to Adelaide Oval and defeat the SANFL by 26 points for WA's first win in Adelaide since 1994, both East Perth and South Fremantle were in tremendous form.
 
The Royals and Bulldogs both lost their opening games of 2018 to Subiaco but had gone on to win four straight matches following that heading into the break for the State game. Read More ...

Round 7 Preview v East Perth

Saturday, May 19, 2018 - 8:47 AM - by Chris Pike

SOUTH Fremantle heads to Leederville Oval on Saturday to take on an in-form East Perth with the equally on fire Bulldogs out to make it five consecutive WAFL wins to secure second position on the ladder.

It shapes as a tantalising match up between two teams who were in terrific form prior to last week's break for the State game when the Royals and Bulldogs meet at Leederville Oval on Saturday.

East Perth and South Fremantle both started their respective seasons with losses to Subiaco but since then neither has suffered defeats and have won four games in succession.

Player Column – Brock Higgins State Game

Thursday, May 17, 2018 - 11:02 AM - by Brock Higgins

LOOKING back on everything to do with the State game last week, it was one of the best experiences I've had in footy. 

At the start it can be a bit awkward at training and getting to know the blokes, but as the week built last week and we spent more time together, you get to know everyone a bit better and the excitement comes into the group about what you are attempting to do. Then the whole trip over there to go somewhere different and play on Adelaide Oval, which is a pretty massive thing, before a Showdown is huge. 

Then it's a strange one because you are playing against a team who you have no idea who anyone is and they don't know us, and we don’t usually play together. So it was a funny thing but it was a great experience and afterwards getting that win was just amazing with all the WA boys. The night that ensued was pretty good as well.

Johnson, Higgins instrumental in WAFL win over SANFL

Monday, May 14, 2018 - 4:19 PM - by Chris Pike
BLAINE Johnson and Brock Higgins were both playing their first games for Western Australia and were strong contributors in the eventual 26-point victory against South Australia at Adelaide Oval.
 
Due to a combination of withdrawing through not being 100 per cent fit and missing out on final selection, Johnson and Higgins were the last two South Fremantle left to make the final WAFL team of 23 ahead of Nick Suban, Ashton Hams, Haiden Schloithe, Ben Saunders, Marlion Pickett and Ryan Cook.
 
It was a drought-breaking win for the WAFL in Adelaide as well Johnson and Higgins played significant roles in that final result. Read More ...
