WILLIAMSTOWN rudely spoiled Daniel Clarke's 200th game celebrations yesterday, thrashing Frankston by 74 points at Frankston Oval.

The class added by the return of Collingwood players James Clement and Rhyce Shaw was simply too much for the home side.

But the day undoubtedly belonged to 21-year-old Patrick Rose. The small forward kicked eight goals straight, including four in the third quarter, in an electrifying display.

The win arrests a four-game losing streak for the Seagulls and puts them back on track as the finals loom.

"We were a bit worried about going down to Frankston with Clarke's 200th, but we did have a much better line-up," Williamstown coach Brad Gotch said after the game.

Seagulls destroy Frankston

SEVERAL Collingwood-listed players put themselves into selection contention in Williamstown's massive 74-point win at Frankston yesterday.

After the Magpies' drubbing at the hands of the Brisbane Lions on Saturday night, they would have been looking at the Seagulls to provide candidates for promotion and a few obliged.

Paul Medhurst was the pick of the bunch with 27 possessions and ruckman Chris Bryan had 10 marks, 22 touches and 20 hit-outs.

James Clement, playing his first game for several weeks after a calf injury, was solid across half-back.

Ideally Clement, who played about 70 per cent of the game, would probably need another run with Williamstown, but the Seagulls have a bye next week so he will probably go up.
