Dell'Olio finds best form for WA, looks to continue with Bulldogs

Wednesday, May 27, 2015 - 12:12 PM - by Chris Pike

CORY Dell'Olio likely played his best game of the year on return to the WAFL in Saturday's State game win over South Australia and now he is looking to continue that form for South Fremantle in WA Day's Foundation Derby as the Bulldogs look to get back on the winner's list.

Dell'Olio was a late addition to the WA squad to take on the SANFL in Saturday's eventual 45-point State game win at Lathlain Park, but in the end his second time representing his state proved a day to remember.

He previously played for WA in 2011 against Queensland before the South Fremantle premiership forward spent the last three years in the AFL with Essendon.

The 25-year-old has returned to the Bulldogs this year and on Saturday formed part of a terrific forward-line for WA alongside Simpson Medallist Ryan Davis, Shane Yarran, Tony Notte, Clancy Wheeler and Lachlan Delahunty.

Five Bulldogs stars shine in big WAFL win over SANFL

Monday, May 25, 2015 - 4:18 PM - by Chris Pike

FOR the second straight year South Fremantle players have been instrumental in Western Australia prevailing in a State match, this time five Bulldogs were part of the WAFL's 45-point win over South Australia at Lathlain Park on Saturday.

Following the efforts of Ben Saunders, Haiden Schloithe, Ryan Cook and Ashton Hams helping the WAFL beat the NEAFL by 85 points in Sydney last year, again South Fremantle players were instrumental in the 18.13 (121) to 11.10 (76) win on Saturday.

Saunders and Schloithe were both unavailable due to injury, but Cook and Hams were back again to play for WA and were joined by Cory Dell'Olio playing for the Black Swans for the second time, and for Marlion Pickett and Blayne Wilson to both make their debuts.

Dell'Olio perhaps his best game of the season as well finishing the afternoon with 20 possessions, seven marks and three goals in an impressive performance.

WAFL State Game Preview v SANFL

Friday, May 22, 2015 - 8:01 PM - by Chris Pike

SOUTH Fremantle will again be strongly represented as the WAFL takes on the SANFL in the 2015 State game at Lathlain Park on Saturday.

After Ashton Hams, Ryan Cook, Haiden Schloithe and Ben Saunders all put in outstanding performances last year for WA in the win over the NEAFL in Sydney, and with Hams winning the Simpson Medal, five South Fremantle players have been named to face South Australia.

Hams and Cook have earned their place again and there is every chance that Schloithe and Saunders would have as well if they were fit. Blayne Wilson and Marlion Pickett have both been selected to make their debut representing the WAFL while Cory Dell'Olio will do so for a second time.

WA and South Australia are two proud football states, the WAFL and SANFL are strong state league competitions and now they do battle in Saturday's State game at Lathlain Park with plenty on the line.

Hams looks forward to second State appearance alongside debutant

Friday, May 22, 2015 - 5:29 PM - by Chris Pike

ASHTON Hams is a little disappointed he didn’t get to play for Western Australia alongside Kyle for the first time in Saturday's State match against South Australia at Lathlain Park, but the chance to play with Marlion Pickett in particular is something he is excited about.

Ashton Hams is one of five South Fremantle players selected to represent the WAFL against the SANFL on Saturday as he gears up to pull on the Black Swans jumper for just the second time.

And he certainly made his mark in his first appearance for WA in last year's win over the NEAFL in Sydney when he was judged best afield and won the Simpson Medal.

The 28-year-old veteran of 141 WAFL matches is now one of the league's most decorated players with two Simpson Medals and two premierships to his credit, and now he will play for WA for the second time on Saturday.

Player Column – Ryan Cook State Game

Thursday, May 21, 2015 - 2:34 PM - by Ryan Cook

I FEEL very fortunate to have been selected in my fourth State game this coming weekend. It is a privilege to be presented with the black and gold swan jumper and a huge honour to be representing not only all of the WAFL players but also the coaches, support staff, fans and football public of Western Australia.

It’s always an odd feeling when it comes to the first training session in the build up to the game as you battle it out week after week in season against these guys that you are now training alongside and calling your teammates. I enjoy the three week lead up to the game as you get to see the best players across the league showcase their skills at training and you get to know them more on a personal level.
