Basically, I've collected unique stats/event from mostly WAFL history, although there is some of other leagues. I find more all the time, if anybody has any post them up. These leagues, the wafl in particular, seems to bring out the extremely random and unique in players. Hold onto your hats, some of these stats are pretty out there.

Swan Districts 18.15 (123)
West Perth 18.7 (115)
SD: Holdsworth, 7.1; Sweetapple. 2.4; Andrews, 2.2; Mc Inerney, 2.2; Avery, 2.1; Symonds, 1.1; Sinclair, 1.1; Krepp, 1.0; Ditchburn, 0.2.
West Perth: Tyson, 17.5; O'Keefe, 1.1; Pola, 0.1.

South Fremantle's Bernie Naylor kicked 48.12 in his three matches against Subiaco in 1953. He started off with 18.2 in round 2, followed it up with 7.4 in round 9, before rounding it off with 23.6 in round 17 versus the Lions. That's an average of 16.4 over the three games.

-320: Rd 16, 1986 - Williamstown won 347-32 v Camberwell, Rd 17, 1986 - Williamstown lost 94-99 v Frankston
-295: Rd 18, 1984 - Brunswick won 268-22 v Kilsyth, SF 2, 1984 - Brunswick lost 84-133 v Box Hill
-292: Rd 14, 1986 - Box Hill won 236-14 v Berwick, Rd 15, 1986 - Box Hill lost 71-141 v Prahran

+300: Rd 18, 1985 - Port Melbourne lost 39-141 v Coburg, Rd 01, 1986 - Port Melbourne won 272-74 v Camberwell
+299: Rd 15, 1984 - Box Hill lost 65-110 v Brunswick, Rd 16, 1984 - Box Hill won 267-13 v Sunshine
+283: Rd 18, 1941 - Port Melbourne lost 87-98 v Northcote, Rd 19, 1941 - Port Melbourne won 287-15 v Sandringham

Round 17, 1979: Swan Districts 40.11 (251) defeated Subiaco 20.7 (127) by 124 points.
1) Leading goalscorer on the day was Swan Districts' Mark Olsen, who bagged 13.3. Subiaco's Gary Buckenara had 27 kicks, 7 handballs, took 17 marks and kicked 9.1 in a losing effort.
2) Not surprisingly, the total match score of 60.18 (378) was and still is a WAFL record.
3) Swan Districts also became the first team to score 200 points twice in a season. Their other score of 200+ was also against Subiaco - this time in Round 5 when they won 31.16 (202) to 11.12 (78). On their other meeting for 1979 in round 12, Swan Districts also won by 116 points, Rd 12 - SD 21.26 (152) defeated Subiaco 4.12 (36).
4) Mark Olsen's bags against Subiaco in the year? 8.2, 8.6 and 13.3

In 1944, Alan Watts of East Perth kicked 101 goals for the season. East Perth didn't lose a game en route to the Premiership in this final season of the WWII underage competition. In 1944, South Fremantle (the team) kicked 100 goals for the season en route to a winless season.

Actual match report: "The meeting of North and South Fremantle attracted only a few spectators to the North Fremantle Oval. The match was reckoned as an easy thing for North, and so it proved, South never having a look in. It would be a waste of space to describe the game. South Fremantle's form was beneath that of a second-rate junior team, and if they can't do any better they might as well drop out of the competition. The final scores were :
North Fremantle, 10.21 (81 points)
South Fremantle, 0.4 (4 points)"
For those who don't know, South Fremantle are still well and alive today, having won 13 premierships, the last in 2009. North Fremantle folded in 1915.

Some classic West Perth
- 1981: thrashed East Fremantle by 178 points in one game, only to lose another game to the Sharks' cousins South Fremantle, the Bulldogs destroying the Falcons by a massive 180 points.
- 1993: headed the ladder and made the Grand Final (they were no match for Claremont) after 3 successive wooden spoons in 1990-1992.
- 1993-2005: held a supernatural jinx over Subiaco, not dropping a game to them.
- 2012: defeated Peel by 100 points, a week after losing to Claremont by 120 points.

In 1987, South Fremantle won their first three matches of the season against East Perth, Perth and West Perth. They then proceeded to lost 18 consecutive matches to finish last with 3 wins, 18 losses and 12 premiership points, a far cry from Claremont's 19 wins, a draw, a loss and 78 points, who went on to win the premiership by 71 points against Subiaco.

And now the greatest stat of all. In 1981, Claremont piled on 3352 points in 21 games, for a percentage of 157.52 after 19 wins and 2 losses. This averages to 159.61 points per game! They went on to win the grand final by just 15 points, 16.15.111 to 12.24.96, so pretty lucky. Last placed Perth conceded 3311 points at an average of 157 points per match. Claremont were spearheaded by Warren Ralph, who won his second of four consecutive Bernie Naylor Medals. Ralph went to Carlton following these in 1984, where he kicked 9 on debut but injuries kept him to 72 goals in 21 matches.

Claremont's scores that year: 154, 123 (loss), 191, 146, 180, 126, 156, 161, 95 (loss), 156, 143, 199, 197, 114, 160, 181, 254, 162, 225, 81 (still somehow won), 148, then 108 and 111 in finals.

A few more before bed;

In 2003, a forward named Scott Simister played the first half of the season for Peel, kicking 16 goals. He transferred mid-season to East Fremantle, kicking 45 goals to top the Shark's goalkicking. His 16 for Peel was good for second on their goalkicking table, the leader having 22. Had he kicked 7 more goals for Peel, he would have headed the goalkicking for two teams in a single season. Similarly, in 1991 Melbourne's Allen Jakovich was the leading goal-kicker for both the league and reserves sides.

In 1982, Warren Ralph and Steve Malaxos, both Claremont, each kicked over 90 goals in a single season. Ralph finished with 115, Malaxos 91. The previous season, Ralph kicked 127 goals and Malaxos 82, Malaxos missing a quarter of the season through injury- Brett Farmer also kicked 67 goals that season. These are the only occasions that a pair of players from one team each kicked over 75 goals each in WAFL history.

In the 1931 to 1940 decade, Claremont (see where these are going?) had a total winning percentage of 47.83%, winning 98 and losing 107, drawing 2. From those 10 seasons, they won three premierships and were runners up twice, despite this losing record. Swan Districts replicated this feat in the 1960s, winning three premierships and being runners up once with a winning percentage of 45.23.

If anybody else wants to do some research, I get mine mostly from and

Few more today

Here's something nobody would know; current WA premier Colin Barnett was a member of Claremont's U-19 side in the late 60s, playing alongside Brownlow and Sandover medallist Graham Moss. Former test cricketer and chairmen of selectors John Inverarity also represented Claremont at colts level.

In round 21 1968, Subiaco's Austin Robertson recorded 31 kicks, 18 marks and 15.11 against East Fremantle for a total of 255 DT points, while teammates Haydn Bunton Jr won 54 possessions and Cam Blakemore has 31 kicks of his own. East Freo recorded just 195 possessions for the entire match (including just 10 handballs), 236 less than Subiaco. Yet, despite Robertson's huge shot-accumulation and the team's possession-winning, Subiaco "only" won by 12 goals.

And finally, possibly one of the most fantastic moments, in the last round of the 1930 season, Claremont stormed home by kicking 10.4 in the final quarter against East Fremantle, spearheaded by 8 in the quarter by George Moloney, who had 10 for the match. Unfortunately, the Sharks kicked 11.5 in the same quarter to win by 62, Jock Laurie also kicking 10. 21 goals (and 9 behinds) in a single quarter of footy, and one of very few times two players kicked 10 or more goals in one game. On the same day, West Perth's Frank Hopkins kicked 14, in a losing side, with 12 in the second half including, like Moloney, 8 in the final quarter to take the league's goalkicking award by a goal over Moloney. And finally, on the same day Ted Tyson kicked one goal, his 50th for the season and career. He'd kick 1147 more goals in his career.
