TEAM: Unchanged side for clash with Swans

Friday, August 28, 2020 - 1:24 PM

East Perth has named an unchanged line-up ahead of tomorrow’s must-win clash against Swan Districts at Leederville Oval.

Jeremy Barnard’s side enter the match having beaten Subiaco in round six by nine-points, breaking a five year hoodoo against the Lions.

The win improved East Perth’s record to 2-3, and puts the side in a position to contend for a top four spot with three games remaining in the home and away season.

East Perth will celebrate the significant contributions of its past and present Indigenous players during the NAIDOC round match.

1978 premiership player John McGuire will be joined by club legend Syd Jackson and Kim Farmer, the daughter of Graham ‘Polly’ Farmer’, at a pre-game NAIDOC event.

John McGuire will perform a Welcome to Country, while his nephew and Royals’ player, Ben McGuire, will read a statement to supporters outlining East Perth’s stance against racism. 

Sebit Kuek, Mitchell Dobson, Jordan Hayden and Harley Sparks have been named as emergencies for the League side.

East Perth’s Reserves will be hoping to continue their unbeaten run when they tackle the eighth placed Swans. Meanwhile, the Royals' Colts side will be hoping to return to the winners’ list after last weekend’s loss to Subiaco.

Reserves bouncedown is at 12.00pm and Colts is at 9.30am. The Rogers Cup Women’s team are coming off a win and will play the final game of their season against South Fremantle at 5.15pm.

League bouncedown is at 2.35pm tomorrow at Leederville Oval. The match will be broadcast live on 91.3 Sport FM, with coverage from 2.00pm.
