After back-to-back wins with the same starting 22, Fremantle may be reluctant to tinker with the winning formula ahead of Saturday’s clash with North Melbourne at Domain Stadium.
Peel was defeated by 35 points against West Perth on Good Friday in the Thunder’s third straight loss, but a handful of players remain in contention for AFL selection.
After a big week at half back a fortnight ago, Tucker proved his ability to play in a variety of positions with a 27 disposal, six mark and eight tackle performance in Peel’s midfield.
Similar to Tucker, Sutcliffe moved into Peel’s midfield from half-back and performed well with 24 touches and 10 tackles.
Taberner is continuing to develop his ruck craft at Peel with the 197cm key forward looking to break into Freo’s 22 as a second ruck option. The 23-year-old had a season-high six hit-outs against West Perth and kicked three goals to move into second place in the WAFL’s goal kicking tally.
The 22-year-old key defender has continued his strong WAFL form with seven marks and four tackles against West Perth.
Travelled to Melbourne with the side that defeated the Demons, and has been listed as an emergency for the past two weeks.
