SUMMARY
Crozier played 16 games in 2016, his most in his five years at the club, as the small forward switched to a role at half-back. He proved to be a strong mark, highlighted by a stunning screamer on the boundary against St Kilda at Etihad Stadium in round 10.

WHAT THE COACH SAYS (Roger Hayden)
Hayden had an interrupted pre-season but has shown his versatility playing half-back, wing and half-forward which is important leading into the season.

Season by Season

Season by Season

Made a switch from small forward to half back and relished the move. Crozier proved to be a strong mark, highlighted by a stunning screamer on the boundary against St Kilda at Etihad Stadium in round 10.

Crozier showed signs of potential in front of goal and had an impact in a number of games as the sub in 2015.

The youngster made a strong impact, especially towards the end of
the season when he became an important part of the forward line. He
showed that he has an exciting future and a role to play at Fremantle.

Crozier is fully recovered from the bout of glandular fever that ended his 2012 season and he’s impressed with his ability to kick a goal during the pre-season. Quick and athletic, the high-leaping Victorian will hope to lock down a spot on Freo's half-forward line in 2013.

Hayden Crozier looked set to continue in the Fremantle team following an auspicious start to his AFL career, but glandular fever cut short his 2012 season.

He showed tremendous energy and enthusiasm in his three appearances, which included a solid effort in Freo’s round 11 win over Richmond at the MCG when Crozier subbed into the game for the injured Aaron Sandilands in the opening minutes.

Like many of the club’s players who didn’t participate in the finals, he faces a battle to break back into what was a very settled Fremantle unit.
