Friday, August 17, 2018 - 4:34 AM - by Chris Pike

THE journey of Kirk Ugle to play AFL and WAFL football was far from conventional and the challenges in his life have been vast, but that makes his 100-game milestone all that more meaningful especially because he got to share it with his family and long-time teammates.

It's easy to look at the football career of Ugle and think that is what defines him.

After all, he has now played 100 games with Swan Districts, the club which means the world to him and that is where he got his start in top-level football at and has been his home away from home since returning from his time with Collingwood.

Come finals time in their semi-final against Peel Thunderbirds, the trend unquestionably continued.

LUKE Partington was one of a host of East Perth players to have a field day in Saturday's thumping of East Fremantle and as a result he's been named the M & J Chickens Player of Round 19.

Wednesday, August 15, 2018 - 6:56 AM - by Chris Pike

THINGS really heated up across Round 19 of the WAFL as East Perth and Claremont replaced Perth and Peel Thunder in the top five in an afternoon of action that included a seven-goal haul, three players racking up 40 or more possessions and another 12 racking up 30 or more.

All four of the matches in Round 19 took place on Saturday morning with Subiaco moving two games and percentage clear on top of the ladder beating West Perth 12.12 (84) to 3.5 (23) at Joondalup Arena.

Round 19 Match Reports

Monday, August 13, 2018 - 8:36 AM - by Chris Pike

SUBIACO kept winning, South Fremantle went a long way to securing second spot and East Perth and Claremont both won to return to top five positions in the WAFL in Round 19 action on Saturday.

With only three rounds to go until the end of the home and away season with eight teams still capable of playing finals coming into Round 19, it's fair to say the stakes were high across the four matches on Saturday afternoon.

While Subiaco is guaranteed of finishing in top spot and East Fremantle can't avoid the wooden spoon for 2018, the rest of the positions inside the top five remain up for grabs.
