SUMMARY
Played four games in 2017 after being elevated from the rookie list. Usually a defender, Nyhuis made an impact straight away at AFL level, kicking four goals on debut against North Melbourne.

WHAT THE COACH SAYS (Roger Hayden)
Ryan has been managed during the off-season with some injuries and building steadily closing in on the JLT series. More that lock down defender role going into the season, but has the versatility to go forward as we know.

Season by Season

Season by Season

Nyhuis made a dream debut for Fremantle against North Melbourne in round 16. Usually a defender, Nyhuis came in as a late inclusion for David Mundy and kicked four goals. The NT product was one of Peel’s best in the WAFL Grand Final against Subiaco in a shut-down role on Subi’s dangerous forwardline.

A consistent performer for Peel, bouncing back from a mid-season knee injury to feature in all four of the Thunder’s finals in their Premiership season.
