PREVIEW: D-League Semi Final v Claremont

 
Subiaco’s Development side will play first in September meeting Claremont at South Fremantle Oval on Saturday.
 
The Lions booked the semi-final opportunity with a big win against East Perth last week and will hope to continue their form against the 2nd placed Tigers.
 
The last time the two teams met Claremont charged away for a 38-point win at Leederville. A lot of football has passed since that Round 17 encounter and the Maroons have produced their best football over the last couple of weeks.

Claremont have won their last four and have been buoyed by the presence of A-grade talent. Players like Jack Richardson and Thomas Ledger have been driving the Tigers.
 
The Lions will be confident with their ability to match the Tigers however with plenty of firepower of their own. Ryan Vermeersch has been playing the key forward role to a tee with 10 goals from the last two games.

The midfield is also enjoying an injection of youth with the likes of Daniel Leach, Mckenzie Lawrence and Brayden Ainsworth adding some zip in the last month.
 
It’s unclear if Jarrad Schofield will drop any qualified league players into the reserves semi-final but it’s a possibility the SFC coaching staff might utilise conditioning opportunities.
 
Ryan Wade brings strength and experience in the midfield. 

 

TALKING POINTS
 
BATTLE OF THE BIG MEN

A massive competition will develop between Subi’s Tim Sutherland and Claremont’s Jeremy Goddard for first hands. Both have been monstering the ruck counts in recent weeks and will be key cogs to their team’s success in the finals. Sutherland has gathered 237 hit outs from ten games in 2017.
 
THE TIGERS LEAGUE LEGS 
 
Jack Richardson, Max Bentley, Thomas Shanahan and Nicholas Winmar have a combined 89 league games between them and with the Tigers league team out of finals contention, there’s every chance Claremont will load up with their experience. Subiaco’s leading players with league experience include Ray Daniels, Simon Parry, Ryan Wade and Braden Fimmano.

REDEMPTION

Subiaco’s D-League have a chance to atone for their devastating exit from the 2016 finals series. The Lions lost a nail-biter against East Fremantle by two points at Bendigo Bank Stadium in the Elimination Final. Although a majority of the team has changed, young heads such as Ryan Borchet, Jacob Miller, Ryan Vermeersch, James Garcia and Braden Fimmano will be relishing the chance to have another crack at September glory.
