The 20-year-old has now played 42 league matches for West Perth having been a regular member of the team the last two years and now becoming a key cog of the Read More [+]

BILL'S GRILL – ROUND 4

Thursday, April 11, 2013 - 10:34 AM

WE have been solid across the board, but I have been really impressed with our back six. We have a good blend of youth and experience down there and they have been a big reason why we are 3-0.

Dan and Petters have been outstanding and have really set the tone, and with Strijky back in the mix with Browney and Luke Ted there are some good players back there.

Rasmussen is also doing well Read More [+]

WEST Perth returns to action tonight at Fremantle Oval following the bye looking to continuing its unbeaten start to the 2013 season against the so-far winless South Fremantle.

RASMUSSEN PAYING BACK FAITH SHOWN IN HIM

Thursday, April 4, 2013 - 7:30 PM

LAINE Rasmussen was earmarked by the West Perth coaching staff as someone to help fill the gap left by the retirement of the defensive stars and two games in, he has been a key factor in the Falcons' wins over East Perth and Subiaco.

Rasmussen was given a taste of league football in 2012 playing 12 games and showing some good signs in a variety of roles, but following the retirement of small defender Dustin Read More [+]

BILL'S GRILL – ROUND 3

Wednesday, April 3, 2013 - 4:41 PM

SOUTH Fremantle has a lot of young guys and three or four recruits coming into their side so they are an interesting team. At their best, they run really hard forward and create a lot of scoring opportunities so they are going to be a hard side to match up on this Friday night.

Obviously I didn’t see their game in Round 1 against Claremont, but from all reports they were very good in the Read More [+]

BILL'S GRILL – ROUND 2

Thursday, March 28, 2013 - 5:13 PM

Last Friday I thought we were very impressive early and the last 20 minutes we were very good again, but in between it was a real mixed bag.

I guess the endeavour was there and our ability to stick to what we wanted to do was there, but we failed to capitalise on our winning of the ball with our field kicking, and then obviously in front of goal as well. We kicked 1.8 between Read More [+]

A HARD FOUGHT VICTORY

Monday, March 25, 2013 - 9:05 AM

The Falcons persevered throughout the match in the game against Subiaco at Medibank Stadium on Friday night.

Even when things weren’t going as expected the players stuck to the game plan and showed a high degree of discipline. The hard running and attack on the football was again a feature of the night and it was this plus a high level of fitness that saw them run out twenty four point victors.

WEST Perth made it two from two to start to the 2013 WAFL season with a 24-point win over Subiaco at Medibank Stadium on Friday night.

PETTIGREW LOOKS FOR FALCONS TO CONTINUE HOT START

Friday, March 22, 2013 - 1:00 PM

WEST Perth made an ideal start to the 2013 season and so did veteran defender Michael Pettigrew personally as he looks for the Falcons to continue that winning form this Friday night against Subiaco.

Pettigrew began his career with West Perth before being drafted by Port Adelaide in 2003 and going on to play 103 games with the Power before leaving at the end of the 2011 season.

That was a tremendous AFL career for Read More [+]
