Coach Post Match – Todd Curley Round 18

Friday, August 16, 2019 - 6:59 AM - by Chris Pike

WHAT South Fremantle coach Todd Curley had to say following the Round 18 WAFL victory over Peel Thunder at Fremantle Community Bank® Oval leading into the end of the home and away season against Claremont and West Perth heading into the finals.

QUESTION: You got off to a terrific start, another good second quarter and even though the second half was a bit of a grind, you would have been happy with that win?
ANSWER:
I thought when the game was really on the line early we were really good and played some good footy. We were able to match them in the contested area which is a real strength for them, and then we were able to use the ball pretty well and use the ball effectively. The second half turned into a bit of a scrap really and we still had a number of shots, but just kicked poorly.

Q: The way you used the footy for much of the first half in particular and your forwards came up with confidence to provide targets worked really well?
A:
I think it's important that if you are ahead of the ball you have to realise that the guys up the ground are going to be under pressure when they get the footy. So when they look up, if there's someone coming and working for them that makes it a lot easier for them. We've been working hard all the way through really and there's still a lot of things we think we can get better at, but when the game was on the line Peel can be a team that when they stay in the contest generally, they seem to find a way to hang around all day. We got that scoreboard gap early and we were lucky because we had a couple of sore boys late, but that was OK.

Tuesday, August 6, 2019 - 3:27 PM - by Chris Pike

SOUTH Fremantle delivered a scintillating eight-goal third quarter to come from behind to beat East Perth at Leederville Oval on Saturday to continue to again build some momentum as the finals approach.
