2017 SUMMARY 
After making his return from injury in 2016, Apeness missed the entire 2017 season after injuring the posterior cruciate ligament in his right knee while playing for Peel reserves in May.

Season by Season

Season by Season

Came into the side late after an injury plagued season, kicking three goals in the last four rounds. A part of Peel’s premiership side, kicking a goal in all four of the Thunder’s finals.

A serious knee injury prevented Apeness from playing many games in 2015. Would be looking forward to a big year in 2016.

The club’s top pick from the 2013 AFL National Draft debuted in round 16 and showed plenty of promise at WAFL level. Looks set to become a bigger factor in 2015.
