A “ruthless” lesson for Freo’s youth

Ross Lyon addressed the media after Freo's clash with the Swans.

If there’s any positive for Griffin Logue to take from Freo’s 104-point loss to Sydney on Saturday at the SCG, it’s the important lesson it’s given to Freo’s younger players.

Sydney outplayed Fremantle across the board, particularly in the opening half as the Swans raced out to a 73-point lead at half time.

“(Sydney) came out really hard in the first half and they just got away from us,” Logue said.

“We got stuck in in the second half but overall, it’s certainly a disappointing performance.”

Logue was one of Freo’s four first-year players in the lineup, alongside Sean Darcy, Brennan Cox and Luke Ryan.

The 19-year-old said the result illustrated the high standard and expectations that are set at AFL level.

“We really need to improve and there’s still a lot of growth that we’re all experiencing,” Logue said.

“It’s just a matter of realising that this is what the AFL is, it’s ruthless.

“If you’re not switched on for 100 per cent of the time you’re going to get hurt and in trouble on the scoreboard.

“I think that, especially myself, we realise what it’s about to be in the big league playing AFL.

“It’s obviously a tough industry and when you have games like today where they blow out on you, it doesn’t get any easier.”

Logue played on the likes of Kurt Tippett and Lance Franklin as a part of Freo’s backline, picking up 12 disposals, seven marks and three tackles.

Franklin, a three-time Coleman Medal winner, kicked four goals to take his season tally to 56 - tied for the 2017 Coleman lead alongside Essendon’s Joe Daniher.

“It was great leaning experience obviously,” Logue said. 

“The likes of Tippett and Franklin are really impressive, athletic and all round they can do anything on the field.

“It shows how impressive they are as players and it sets the standard for how much further I’ve got to go.”
