Raponi to fly flag in WAFL
Raponi to fly flag in WAFL

West Perth president Brett Raponi will take over the lead role for one of the WAFL's most pro-active bodies later this month.

Haydn Raitt will step down from the position of chairman with the WAFL council of presidents at a meeting on February 24, ending a three-year term.

Raponi, who is one of the league's longest-serving current presidents, will be Raitt's replacement. The Falcons official said the WAFL was entering one of the most important phases in the competition's history, with the AFL-alignment model being introduced this year.

"It's the third change now in 24 years and we have to find ways to adapt to it," he said.
