Aaron Sandilands is confident that he’s poised for a healthy 2016.


As the Fremantle Dockers continue their push toward the start of the 2016 season, Aaron Sandilands is optimistic about the fitness of the team as well as his own.

After a surgery free off-season, Sandilands is confident that he’s poised for a healthy 2016.

“I got through unscathed and the body is where it should be,” he said.

“I’m ticking over pretty good, the conditioning guys monitor me pretty well and (the) body feels great at this point in time.”

Sandilands also praised Nathan Fyfe’s work ethic as the Brownlow Medallist works his way back into the regular training group.

“He’s elite the way he prepares,” he said of the key midfielder.

Pre-season ramps up

“He’s spent a fair bit of time out on the track, I don’t think he’s missed too much running.

“He’ll be back in the main group pretty soon.”

Both Zac Clarke and Harley Bennell’s fitness are steadily improving ahead of pre-season competition, according to Sandilands.

“He’s (Clarke) tracking well, out there running around and in due course will be back in the main group,” he said.

“He’s doing his program and looking fit,” Sandilands said of Bennell.

“He’s another player that’s not too far away.”
