Round 2 Clash Preview

Friday, April 6, 2018 - 4:39 PM

Saturday’s contest between East Fremantle and Perth is set to be a good one, with both teams determined for a win.

Bolstered by a home crowd, the Sharks side that fell just short of the reigning premiers last week, will be pushing to maintain intensity until the end of the fourth quarter.

Perth, despite a strong start weren’t able to get the four points against Swan Districts last Saturday.

A few forced changes with the loss of James Bristow (concussion), Jayden Schofield (suspension), Blaine Boekhorst (ACL) and Fraser Perry (knee) have seen seven potentially ins from last week’s side.  The club, it’s staff, volunteers and supports wish Blaine all the very best with his upcoming surgery and look forward to him returning raring to go for the start of the 2019 season.

In to the mix come Josh Cuneo, Ben Harding, Tom Omodei, Ambrose Ryan, Jordan Snadden and Russell Wynne, with the two latter potentials to make their East Fremantle league debuts.

Coming through the Sharks Development pathway, Snadden spent three years with our colts, before his selection in the 2015 Rookie Draft to the Eagles. With the alignment model, Snadden played 19 league games for East Perth but made his way back to Shark Park over the preseason. The big bodied inside midfielder, with a racking left kick, will be a handy inclusion into Sundays side.

Russell Wynne is also a potential debutant, coming to the Sharks from Mt Barker. After a strong performance in the Development League last week, finishing with 22 disposals and a goal, Wynne may have earned himself a spot in the league side.

Former captain Jamie Mcnamara is set to make his return from injury after pulling up well last week in the two’s.

We’ve got a bouncy castle for the kids, sky racing on in the main hall and 4 great games of footy so make sure you get down to Shark Park this Saturday!
