THERE are four matches in Round 15 of the WAFL on Saturday including two battles between teams in the top five, another between two sides trying to stay in the finals race and then East Fremantle looking to bounce back.

With the West Coast Eagles and Subiaco sitting out the Round 15 action with the bye, the other four matches all have plenty at stake for the competing teams.

Each of the four Round 15 matches of the 2022 WAFL season will take place at 2.10pm on Saturday afternoon.

Claremont and Swan Districts will lock horns at Revo Fitness Stadium in what could well be a season-defining match up for both teams.

The Tigers have now won their past two matches to improve to a 9-4 record o be only percentage out of second spot coming into Round 15 while the Swans are fifth at 8-5 following last week's win against East Perth.

East Perth and Peel Thunder are the two teams outside the top five who are still in finals contention when they meet at East Fremantle's New Choice Homes Park on Saturday.

The Royals slipped two games out of fifth spot with their loss to Swan Districts last week but they can stay in the hunt with a win over Peel but it won't be easy with the Thunder having now won their past two matches to just a game out of a finals spot at 7-6.

East Fremantle and Perth will then do battle at the WACA Ground for the first time since 1988 on Saturday afternoon.

The Sharks remain in second position on the WAFL ladder but only on percentage following last Saturday's disappointing 14th straight derby loss to South Fremantle. They will be desperate to bounce against the injury-ravaged Demons who come into the clash on a nine-game losing slide.

Then there is undoubtedly match of the round between South Fremantle and West Perth at Fremantle Community Bank Oval.

South Fremantle is in its best patch of form of the season having won three straight including a dominant derby performance last Saturday to now sit at 9-4 to be only percentage out of second position coming into Round 15.

West Perth returned to top spot on the WAFL ladder courtesy of last week's win against the West Coast Eagles and the Falcons can maintain that one-game gap on the chasing pack with a rare win for them in recent times down at the port.
