However, after several unsuccessful finals campaigns between 1991 and 1994 Todd returned to South Fremantle, where he began his football career, and Swan Districts fell rapidly downhill on and off the field under coaches Graham Melrose (1995 and 1996), Phil Cronan (1997 and 1998), Peter Wilson (1999) and Todd again from 2000 to 2002. Between 1995 and 2002 they did not play in the finals and overall won only 51 of 158 games. Swan Districts fell drastically to be last in 1986 and 1988, b...
After a round 12 win against Swan Districts by just a point, the Lions will look to continue their winning ways and collect another W playing in front of their home crowd at Leederville Oval for a second week in a row.
