WAAFL: Brawl breaks out in A Grade GF between Scarborough and Fremantle CBC

Vision has emerged of a heated brawl at Steel Blue Oval which broke out during the dying stages of Saturday’s WAAFL grand final between Scarborough and Fremantle CBC.

Footage filmed by Twitter user @BradCollett shows a pack of at least 100 people fighting on a grass embankment near the Can Bar.

Speaking to ABC Radio after the game, WAAFL General Manager David Armstrong said the incident wouldn’t sour Scarborough’s drought-breaking 46-point win.

“It (was) certainly from my point of view pretty isolated,” Mr Armstrong said.

“When you’ve got two competing clubs and the banted that goes between the two clubs, it’s just disappointing but it’s all forgotten.

“You’ve got premiers here and they’re going to celebrate pretty hard tonight.”

The flag was Scarborough’s first in 20 years and capped off a brilliant season which featured a minor premiership and just one loss, in round seven.

Joel Ashman claimed his second individual gong of the week, winning the BJ Giles Medal for best-afield to go with his CJ Jamieson Medal as the competition’s best and fairest player.

Marc Re, Christopher Baker and Jordan Anderson-Holmes kicked three goals apiece for the Sea Eagles, while former East Fremantle forward Jacob Green (four goals) was among Fremantle CBC’s best.

North Beach and University made it back-to-back flags in the A Reserves and Phil Scott Colts respectively.
