Jack Anthony struggled to break into the Fremantle team in 2012, managing only four games and three goals.

He performed strongly at WAFL level for Subiaco, both as a forward and a defender, but he couldn’t translate that form to AFL level when given an opportunity.

A leading goal kicker at his former side Collingwood in 2009, Anthony faces the most important season of his career in 2013 in what is the final year of his contract at Freo.
