Wednesday, May 16, 2018 - 3:50 PM

The Good for Footy Raffle is back bigger than ever in 2018, and this year we're aiming for another record-breaking season.

State Game Match Report – WAFL v SANFL

Saturday, May 12, 2018 - 2:53 PM - by Chris Pike
SCINTILLATING second and fourth quarters have led the KIA WAFL State Team to an inspired and drought-breaking 26-point victory over South Australia in the 2018 State Game on Saturday at Adelaide Oval.
 
Western Australia went into the contest on Saturday at Adelaide Oval having won the past five State matches but winning in Adelaide against the Croweaters hadn’t happened since a State of Origin victory for the Sandgropers in 1994.
 
WA then started slowly on Saturday going goalless in the opening quarter. But that soon changed with a scorching eight-goal performance in the second term to head into half-time with a four-goal advantage. Read More ...

HE has played AFL football, is a WAFL premiership captain and is one of the most decorated players in the modern era but nothing trumps leading your State into battle for Kyal Horsley and he hopes to be part of more history on Saturday in Adelaide.

Horsley's resume is just remarkable with the Subiaco captain a three-time WAFL premiership player, dual flag winning skipper, two-time fairest and best winner, a 14-game AFL player at the Gold Coast Suns and a life member at the Lions with 166 games in the WAFL under his belt.

Remarkably, Horsley is now in his 10th season in the WAFL and he has played in seven Grand Finals for the three premierships.
