A strong level of enthusiasm among Fremantle’s young players has helped maintain positive team chemistry, according to senior coach Ross Lyon.

“Losing is a difficult environment at AFL clubs,” Lyon said.

“We’ve been quite vibrant, I think the youth do that.

“They’re just trying to get some traction and get a footprint in the AFL.”

Fremantle have had 14 players with fewer than 50 games take the field so far this season, seven of which debuted within the past 12 months.
