Three Peel Thunder players have been selected in the 34-man WAFL State Squad to face South Australia at Optus Stadium this month.

Thunder stars Jacob Blight, Michael Sellwood and Jack Sears will feature in the side, which will be coached by former Peel coach Cam Shepherd.

WA will be chasing their first win over South Australia since 2018.

Executive Manager – Footballer Operations at the WAFC (West Australian Football Commission) Scott Baker is confident the team can get the job done.

“The focus at selection was to deliver a mix of players with experience who will match up well against the SANFL, to give Cam Shepherd and his coaching staff their best chance of success,” Baker said. 

“Picking in form players with a strong desire and commitment to represent their state was also a key consideration.” 

The game will be played at Optus Stadium on Sunday, May 19 from 12.40pm.

It will be a curtain raiser to the AFL match between West Coast and Melbourne.
