2013 State Game WAFL vs VFL

This game will be played on Saturday May 10 likely to be a 12pm start local time.

The venue will likely be Jubilee Oval in Northam (100km NE of Perth). It will be confirmed in the Next week or s.

Will Robbo be there ?
Probably great move to play at a country venue like Northam.

Unsure about that VFA.
Would AFL Vic play a state game at Seymour, Ballarat, Bendigo or Moe ???
I was contemplating going but they can stick Northam where their mother never kissed them.

We might be from the bush. but we ain't green

The VFL would play it Moe no worries. Free entry for those with moccasans.
Nothing wrong with the idea of a state game at QEO or Eureka Stadium.
Better there than T/Dome.
Don't be surprised if they do end up playing at Northam and it goes well the VFL would next year have a state game in country Victoria.

The WAFL have played several games over the past few seasons at rural venues and will continue to do. I reckon Northam is a good move. The crowd last time at Leederville Oval when VFL flogged WAFL was less than average and I reckon they would get far more at Northam.
Also remember the state game when the VFL played SANFL at North Port Oval a few seasons ago. It was a super game with good atmopshere. I hope they never have one of these state games at Turd Dome.

Digs, I have been to Northam when I travelled around Australia in 1994. We stayed a few days there where we headed towards Kalgoorlie from Perth.
We went to the races at Northam and we stayed at a caravan park. Nearly got eaten alive by mozzies. We called Northam Mosquitoville. Tongue won the raffle at the races a meal at the local pub !!!

He's still on the ball the old Cobrascorer.
He doesn't miss a trick even from Pommieland.
I'd say he'll be at Margaret Thatcher's funeral.

We certainly won't be attending Thatcher's funeral. I hear that Shirley Bassey and Jeremy Clarkson have been invited.

Gray RavenXAU . The game will be on the ABC with the WAFL commentary team, with perhaps Phil Clearly making the trip as the VFA /VFL representative.
