Friday, June 29, 2018 - 11:13 AM - by Chris Pike

THE WAFL is back to a full round of fixtures this Saturday and there's plenty on the line with West Perth trying to topple Subiaco in the annual International Football Festival at Joondalup Arena undoubtedly the headline act.

There were just the three games in Round 12 of the WAFL last Saturday and that saw the season significantly tighten up in terms of the battle for the last two spots in the final five, with Claremont winning to close in further and Swan Districts and East Perth losing to be in danger of dropping out.

While Subiaco and West Perth won their games last Saturday to further consolidate their top three positions either side of the second placed South Fremantle, it's a tight competition beneath the Lions, Bulldogs and Falcons who appear to have their spots sewn up at this stage.

Move to Peel keeps paying off as Ugle reaches 100

Friday, June 29, 2018 - 9:03 AM - by Chris Pike

HIS move to Mandurah has proved the best decision of his life with Gerald Ugle becoming a dual premiership captain with Peel Thunder and now the only thing that would take he and his young family away would be a second AFL chance as he approaches game 100 in the WAFL.

Being able to settle living in Mandurah with his wife, son and daughter now since making the move from Perth at the end of 2014 has proven quite the successful decision to make for Ugle both on and off the field.

The result is that he has not missed a game since joining Peel for the 2015 season. He has played 79 of a possible 79 matches at the Thunder and that has included the only nine finals that the club has ever participated in.
