1955 WANFL Grand Final Perth were captained by Keith Harper and coached by Ern Henfry, who had retired as a player the previous season. East Fremantle had long-time rover Jack Sheedy as their captain, and were coached by George Meiers. The match was dominated by the Fremantle Doctor, a heavy breeze blowing from the western end of the ground. The team kicking with the wind was heavily favoured in each quarter.
1967 WANFL season Future Hall of Fame coach John Todd had his first major success, lifting 1965 and 1966 wooden spooners South Fremantle to their third finals berth and first victory since 1956. Early in the season the red and whites were the nearest rivals to East Perth, who won fifteen of their first sixteen matches before fading. Perth had been a 2/1 flag favourite before the season started but lost six of their first eleven matches before coming back to always have the edge on East Perth during August and September. Claremont, after a frustrating 1966, recovered from a disastrous start before being denied a finals berth in the last few minutes.
1967 WANFL season A lowlight was a career-ending knee injury to champion West Perth centre half-back Brian France on 8 July against East Fremantle. At the time France had polled eighteen votes in the Sandover Medal and was still within one vote of tying despite playing only thirteen full games.
1947 WANFL season The 1947 WANFL season was the 63rd season of senior football in Perth, Western Australia. With the background of war completely removed, 1947 saw the WANFL begin a golden age of growth dominated by the two Fremantle clubs, West Perth and Perth, who made the league for the following nine seasons a "de facto" hierarchy led by South Fremantle and West Perth, who respectively won 128 and 121 of their 159 home-and-away matches between 1947 and 1954. Zones with vastly different populations and large unzoned areas allowed these more successful and financially secure clubs to monopolise the leading player talent.
1972 WANFL season The two clubs established their supremacy from early in the season, and the battle for the last place in the four was won by reigning premiers West Perth despite losing eight of their last ten matches.
1941 WANFL season On the field, 1941 saw West Perth, boosted by veteran goal machine Ted Tyson’s comeback from appendicitis and planned retirement, achieve a premiership barely two years after having lost 27 consecutive matches as a young nucleus that would make them a power after the war, including such players as Stan Heal and Bill Baker, defeated perennial powerhouse East Fremantle twice during the finals. In a thrilling struggle for the fourth position, East Perth lost out despite an impressive final-round win over the eventual premiers and missed the finals for the first time since 1930; they were despite a perfect season in the 1944 under-age competition not to return to open-age finals until 1952.
1965 WANFL season The 1965 WANFL season was the 81st season of the various incarnations of the Western Australian National Football League.
1966 WANFL season The 1966 WANFL season was the 82nd season of the various incarnations of the Western Australian National Football League.
1946 WANFL season 1946 also saw Perth, in the doldrums since the end of World War I, begin its rise to power with the return of Merv McIntosh. The Redlegs stood third with two games remaining but lost a decisive match to Subiaco, who played open-age finals for the first time in a decade, in spite of being very weak in attack and the failure of their protest against Townsend. Swan Districts, a finalist in 1945, fell to second-last and began its bleakest period on record: until Haydn Bunton, Jr. joined the club in 1961 Swans were never to win more than seven games in a season and did not finish above any rival except Subiaco or Claremont. The Swans did, however, win their first title of any kind in the lower grade. Despite the return of Bernie Naylor, who went far beyond his 1941 promise with 131 goals, South Fremantle fell to fourth owing to injuries and business commitments – one of which caused their coach to resign while their form was at its best.
1968 WANFL season The 1968 WANFL season was the 84th season of senior football in Perth, Western Australia. It saw Perth, after having won only two premierships in its first sixty-six seasons, win its third consecutive flag under captain-coach Mal Atwell and champion rover Barry Cable – all three Grand Finals having been won against East Perth with Cable taking the Simpson Medal.
