It was also the clubs second (at the time, now third) lowest score, and third highest score conceded.[16]

Jye Bolton with his career high 51 disposal game, became only the second player in WAFL history (after Shane Nelson) to notch 2 games with over 50 disposals, and only the 10th instance of a 50 disposal game overall.[17]
