PEEL Thunder replaced Swan Districts on top of the WAFL Colts ladder without playing a game in Round 12 with Subiaco beating Swan Districts while West Perth stayed in touch with a top five position and East Perth got close to climbing out of the cellar.
It's a remarkably tight WAFL colts competition so far in 2018 with only four games separating the top and bottom placed teams with Peel Thunder holding a 7-3 record and East Perth 3-7.
That means that all nine teams still remain a chance to take part in finals action in 2018 and it makes every game that takes place fascinating not only for the result, but the exciting young talent on display.
The West Australian Football Commission encourages all junior players to sing their team song after a game whether they keep score, win, lose or draw.
Singing the team song together builds great team spirit and camaraderie and is an important part of the match day experience for junior players.
Fun should be the focus for junior footy teams and singing the team song after every game is a great part of making footy an enjoyable experience for our juniors regardless of the result of the game.
The Western Australia State Integrated team have been crowned Pool B Division Premiers at the 2018 AFL National Inclusion carnival in Tasmania after defeating Northern Territory by 14-points in the Grand Final on Saturday, June 23.
WA played a strong brand of footy throughout the match and kept Northern Territory to just one goal right up until the final term. North Territory fought back in the last quarter, and responded with two goals but couldn’t overcome team WA.

SUBIACO flexed its muscles while West Perth shook off the challenge of Perth and Claremont kept its finals hopes alive across the three WAFL matches in Round 12 of the 2018 season on Saturday.
There were just the three WAFL matches on Saturday in Round 12 and the action began at Leederville Oval with Claremont scoring an important win, handing East Perth a fifth straight defeat winning 14.11 (95) to 9.9 (63).
West Perth then further consolidated third position and stayed in touch with second spot by claiming a 15th consecutive win against Perth, prevailing 15.6 (96) to 11.9 (75) at Joondalup Arena.
IMPROVED confidence, health and belief are all factors in Perth now playing its best football in Earl Spalding's time as coach and he sees no reason now why they can't further close in on a top five position by ending a horror run against West Perth.
Perth hasn’t won a premiership in the WAFL since 1977 nor taken part in a final series since 1997, and really they haven’t seriously threatened to accomplish either for a long time, including since Spalding took over as coach in 2015 from Damien McMahon.
It has been tough going the previous three years and something Spalding certainly hadn’t been used to after his playing career both in the WAFL at Perth and East Fremantle, and VFL/AFL with Melbourne and Carlton.
Western Australia's State 16s take on South Australia at Adelaide's Alberton Oval this Sunday, June 24, in their first game of the NAB AFL National 16s Championships.
The game starts at 11:30am (10.00am WST) and score updates will be provided via WAFL Facebook and Twitter.
THERE are just the three matches in Round 12 of the 2018 WAFL season but each of them has plenty on the line with Swan Districts trying to upset Subiaco, Perth attempting to end a long losing run to West Perth and East Perth and Claremont out to return to the winner's list.
With the second placed South Fremantle, seventh placed Peel Thunder and bottom placed East Fremantle having the bye in Round 12, it shapes as a fascinating day of action on Saturday with three matches taking place.
The earlier starting game on Saturday afternoon takes place at Leederville Oval and will be televised live on Channel 7 from 1.30pm with East Perth playing Claremont.
Three massive Round 12 WAFL clashes are set to unfold this Saturday and there will also be heaps of fun activities, events and competitions taking place at all three venues, which fans and club members can get involved in.

A COUPLE of exciting Perth forwards combined for 12 goals, the reigning Sandover Medallist was on fire, a versatile Subiaco big man continued to dominate and a West Perth veteran made it 13 goals in his last two games as just some of the standout Round 11 WAFL performers.
There were plenty of outstanding individual performers on Saturday in Round 11 of the 2018 WAFL season with wins along the way for the top three teams Subiaco, South Fremantle and West Perth, and a Perth side who put themselves right in the finals hunt.
The thriller of the afternoon took place at Claremont Oval with West Perth beating Claremont 9.8 (62) to 8.13 (61) with Andrew Strijk booting another five goals for the Falcons.
HIS WAFL debut might have come at the advanced age of 24, but Michael Bennell has already made up for lost time and on Saturday he delivered a stunning seven-goal performance for Perth to earn M & J Chickens Player of the Round honours.
Bennell did play a handful of games for Swan Districts' reserves back in 2013, but he has spent recent years in Albany and playing in the WAFL did appear a faraway thought for most of that time.
He did play some impressive football in the forward-line for the Albany Sharks, but still he was settled down south and as he approached his 24th birthday, a career in the WAFL was beginning to appear unlikely.
A team of 16 football players from WA with intellectual disabilities recently competed in the AFL National Inclusion Carnival in Launceston, Tasmania.
