Connor Blakely says the break is a great time for players to rejuvenate and refresh for the second half of the year.

Fremantle midfielder Connor Blakely says the playing group are feeling positive about going into the break and returning to what will feel like a ‘new season’ after sitting six and six.

The 21-year-old, along with the playing group, will be aiming to close the gap between Freo’s best and worst after the bye.

“Obviously we had a few ups and downs in the first half of the year but we’re looking for a bit more consistency in the second-half,” Blakely said.

“I think coming into (the bye) six and six is not a bad ledger,

“Losing our last three games isn’t what we wanted at all.”

The midfielder has played every game this season and continues to learn valuable lessons from playing on the best players in the competition.

“I’m always learning so much throughout each game, so I can never be satisfied," he said.

“I’m spending time in the midfield but there’s a few things you always need to work on and improve."

Despite averaging 23 disposals a game this year, Blakely reflects on what he’s learnt so far this season.

“Just being able to adapt to different players and different roles,” he said.

“To just keep buying into the game plan and what Ross wants us to do."
