Wednesday, April 20, 2022 - 7:23 PM by Rachael Osborne

East Fremantle Football Club are proud to annouce we have 4 players selected in the squad up for selection to represent the state in the 2022 Kia Australia WAFL State Team. 

Congratulations to Cameron Eardley, Matthew Jupp, Jonathon Marsh and Brynn Teakle.

With the opportunity to don the famous Black and Gold, 35 of WAs most talented footballers have been selected from WAFL clubs.  

Western Australia is scheduled to play South Australia at Optus Stadium on Sunday 15 May, with a strong desire to reclaim the Haydn Bunton Cup after losses in 2019 and 2021. 

Executive Manager of WAFL and Talent, Scott Baker, said the players selected in the 2022 squad have proved themselves with strong pre-season and Round 1 form.

"The coaches have had a very keen eye over preseason, going to games, observing players and what skills and attributes they can bring to the team,” he said. 

“It’s never an easy decision with the immense talent in WA and the players should be very proud of their achievement in being named in the squad. 

It is a fantastic accomplishment to represent the state and I’m excited to see their talent develop and be on show for the game against South Australia in May.”

The squad will train together over the coming weeks with the final team selection on 11 May, ready for the game at Optus on 15 May 2022.
