Contested ball skills, full ground running and ball movement were on display during Fremantle’s training session on Monday.
High pressure was prominent in the contested drills, seasoned veterans David Mundy and Matthew Pavlich proved valuable with their poise while Michael Walters pressured the ball carrier with the same enthusiasm we’ve grown accustomed to.
In the full ground contests, both tall forward lines acquitted themselves nicely.
Matt Taberner showed strong hands in a physical, marking contest with Anthony Morabito, while Aaron Sandilands proved there’s no substitute for height as he took a towering, fingertip mark.
Walters and Hayden Crozier provided a tantalising look into the future, both kicking impressive snap and set shots from the pocket to finish training.
Michael Johnson moved well, training with the main group and completing extra individual running afterwards.
Harley Bennell wasn’t with the main group but participated in running for the entirety of training.
