SUMMARY
Tucker is quickly developing at senior level, playing 31 games during his opening two seasons. The 21-year-old has slotted in well in defence and on the wing, and could push for an inside midfield role in 2018.

WHAT THE COACH SAYS (Simon Eastaugh)
Significant improvement with Darcy’s running and his strength development in the gym. He is looking to cement a spot on the wing or across half forward. Darcy has shown strong dedication to improving himself and is going into the year with a renewed confidence with his ability to play at the highest level.

Season by Season

Season by Season

Playing all but three games in his second season at Fremantle, Tucker continued to develop as one of Fremantle’s exciting up and coming players. The 20-year-old starred against GWS with 23 disposals while taking 11 marks in defence.

An eventful debut season, playing 12 AFL games as well as 13 for Peel in their Premiership season. The speedy midfielder even had a taste of the AFL’s biggest day, earning a start in the Grand Final sprint.
