images-3.jpg

In round 17 of the WAFL Colts Competition, Claremont stamped their authority as a premier team in this year’s competition with a 29-point victory over Subiaco.
The result sees Claremont rise to second spot on the ladder, just one win behind East Fremantle, while Subiaco declined to fifth position, just two games clear of East Perth and West Perth.

Below were the best players of the game.

LEWIS DAVIS | CLAREMONT | RUCK | 197cm | 82kg

The Claremont ruck was brilliant for the visitors, recording 22 possessions, 15 hit-outs, nine marks, four inside 50s and three tackles in a superb outing. So far in 2017, the Bordern FC product has recorded 194 hit-outs (the equal fourth-best in the competition) at an average of 13 hit-outs per game.

CALLAN ENGLAND |CLAREMONT | MIDFIELD | 182cm | 73kg

The WA State 18s representative was at his brilliant best against Subiaco. He finished with 29 possessions, a game-high eight inside 50s, six marks, two tackles and two goals in a performance that should see his draft stocks continue to rise.

RYLIE MORGAN | CLAREMONT | MIDFIELD | 181cm | 80kg

The 2016 WA U16s Captain was at his prolific best for the Tigers against the Lions. He accumulated 33 possessions, laid six tackles, took three marks and recorded two inside 50s, in yet another outstanding performance. With such performances, expect Morgan to be a start-up for the WA U18s next year.

JAKE PATMORE  | CLAREMONT | MIDFIELD | 180cm |72kg

Coming off a magnificent performance against South Fremantle (39 possessions, eight marks, five inside 50s, four tackles and a goal), the AFL Academy star produced yet another sublime performance against Subiaco. He finished with a career-high 42 possessions, seven inside 50s, five marks and two tackles in a display that highlighted his evasiveness, class, and his ability to create spark and run. Expect him to be firmly in the minds of AFL recruiters.

TYRON SMALLWOOD |CLAREMONT | SMALL FORWARD | 177cm | 76kg

The small forward was simply dynamic in his debut for Claremont. The 17-year-old kicked two goals from just 10 possessions in a lively performance that highlighted how bright his future was. The Royals FC junior is another player worth keeping tabs on for the 2018 AFL Draft.

LIAM HICKMOTT | SUBIACO | MIDFIELD | 176cm | 67kg

Arguably the best player for Subiaco, Hickmott produced yet another tough in-and-under performance. He finished with 32 possessions (19 in the second half), a career-high 13 tackles, four marks, two inside 50s and a hit-out in a heartfelt performance.

KYLE STAINSBY |SUBIACO | DEFENDER | 181cm/68kg

A 17-year-old, Stainsby has made great progress in 2017 and this continued against Claremont. Stationed in the back line, the Carine junior finished with 16 possessions, four tackles, three inside 50s and two marks in an effort full of desperation.

JACK ZAPPELLI | SUBIACO |HALF-FORWARD

In his debut for Subiaco, the Railways junior was dazzling on the half-forward line for the Lions. He kicked a goal from 17 possessions, he also took three marks and recorded two inside 50s. Another 17-year-old well, Zappelli is well worth keeping tabs on.
