Subiaco captain Aidan Parker says the club’s first win over Claremont since 2009 is just a sign of things to come.
The Lions stunned the rest of the WAFL by defeating the previously un-beaten Tigers by ten points at Claremont Oval, but Parker says it came as no surprise to the players.
“We were quietly confident before the game because we were given a game plan from Scoey that was absolutely to the letter and he knows the way Claremont play very well,”
“The boys were just relentless with their pressure, it’s probably the best we’ve tackled all year, we congested the contests and forced Claremont to kick the ball longer rather than getting their run and spread going.” Parker said
Jason Bristow continued his stellar season in Subiaco’s midfield racking up 28 disposals and applying a staggering 9 tackles while the team had 9 individual goal scorers.
Last Saturday’s win over Swan Districts means it’s the first time Subiaco has won back to back games since round 5, 2012.
“It’s good to get that out of the way and hopefully it can be a bit of a launching pad to really get our season into gear.” Parker said.
The Lions players have been quick to turn their attention to this weekend’s home game against South Fremantle who are coming off an upset win over rivals East Fremantle.
“After our recovery session we immediately started focusing on Souths, they had a great upset win last week and if we don’t put in a good performance this week it undoes all the good work we put in this week.” Parker said
