WAFL Watch: Coach’s comments - Rd 2 v Swan Districts

Senior development coach Marc Webb runs through how the 12 Fremantle-listed players performed in Peel Thunder's 14-point loss to Swan Districts at Steel Blue Oval on Saturday. 

Darcy Tucker
It was a really good effort for Darcy where he kicked two goals from the wing. He was clean around the contest with 34 disposals and was one of our key drivers with his overlap run. 

Danyle Pearce
Danyle played inside mid for the game where he had 40 disposals, 28 kicks, eight marks and six clearances. He was good with his hands and also had some impact on our entries. He helped drive Peel when they were struggling with players going down with injury. 

Ethan Hughes
Ethan impressed as a key defender and was one of our main rebound backs. He finished the game with nine marks and 12 kicks and was also impressive in the one-on-one contests. 

Tom North
Tom played on ball in his first game back from injury where he had four clearances and kicked a goal. It was a good start back for him in WAFL football.

Lloyd Meek
Lloyd played forward and also rucked. He ended up with 23 hitouts, 18 possessions and four clearances. It was a solid game, spending more time in the ruck when Sean Darcy went down. 

Brady Grey
Brady played forward for the first half and then was struck down with injury. He brought pressure with his three tackles and kicked a really good goal. 

Shane Kersten
Playing back for the game, Shane had eight kicks and was solid with his bodywork and one-on-one contests. 

Ryan Nyhuis
Ryan Nyhuis played back in another typical Nyhuis game where he was locked in some good one-on-one battles and helped roll off and support his defence. He had three or four really key spoils to help stop the Swan Districts attacks. 

Brennan Cox
Brennan played deep back for three and a bit quarters and then we swung him forward late in the game, kicking a goal in the last quarter. It was a tough battle against Swan Districts’ Corey Gault, who was playing a strong role forward. 

Scott Jones
Scott played forward and also spent a fair bit of time in the ruck. He was solid with his tap work and collected two clearances. 

Michael Apeness
Michael played forward but missed the last part of the game with an ankle injury. He presented at the contest, but it was a hard day for our key forwards with the Swans midfielders really working hard back into defence and he had limited opportunities with five kicks. 

Sean Darcy
Sean played ruck for the first quarter and a bit with 11 hitouts and two clearances. He was showing good signs with his ruck work and followed up well before he was struck down with a knee injury.

Luke Strnadica also played for Peel in the reserves, picking up 27 hitouts, 22 disposals and kicking a goal.
