(By 'Rover.')

Well-matched physically and in point of view of skill and Btamina, West Perth and East Perth will meet at Subiaco Oval this afternoon in the errand final match of the

premiership competition of the West Aus tralian National Football League, and the winner will gain the' league pennant for, the 1932 season.

The name of the field umpire will not be an nounced until this afternoon and the final selection of teams will take pace prior to the commencement of the game. After playing consistently well through out the greater part of the season, West Perth defeated East Fremantle in the sec ond semi-final match after a hard game, while East Perth, 'after beating South Fremantle in the first semi final, played one, of its best games of. the season to defeat East Fre mantle in the final match last Saturday. In doing bo, East Perth showed itself to be a vastly improved team and consider ably enhanced its chances of beating West Perh. Except for some indifferent per formances at the start of the season, West Perth was one of the most reliable teams in the first round, in which it defeated East - Perth twice— the first time by 27 points and the second by 23 points. Both games were played at Leederville Oval. In the first series of games, East Perth won with 11.14 to 9.9 on its home ground. Plaelnis of the Teams. , For only the third time this season. West will be at full strength and it will field much the same team with which it won the second semi-final. The only addi tion to its ranks will be Gordon, the right wingman, who will probably play in his usual position. The half-forward, R. Niven, is reported to have recovered from the illness which forced him to leave 'the field at half-time in the semi-final match and he will take his place' in attack. , ? East Perth' will have all its players avail able. After the final match on Saturday last, the umpires laid charges against cer tain players, which meant that East Perth might be deprived qf the service* of one or two of its men in to-day's games. The Pro test and Disputes Board met last night and decided to caution R. Lawn (East Perth), who was charged by field umpire Campbell for unduly rough play. V. Spar row, also of East Perth, and J. Laurie (East Fremantle) were alleged by boundary umpire Ryan to have fought during the match.) The charge against Sparrow was dismissed, but Laurie was suspended for four .playing dates. On a charge of hav ing struck B. Ryan (East Perth), O. Gab nelson (East Fremantle) was also sus pended for1 'four playing dates.
