SUMMARY
Took on the responsibility as Fremantle’s lead ruckman in the absence of the injured Aaron Sandilands in 2017. While Sandilands is expected to resume the key role in 2018, Darcy’s impressive debut season means the duo could share ruck duties this year.

WHAT THE COACH SAYS (Marc Webb) 
Sean again has been working hard through pre-season, obviously in his ruck roll, combining a bit of a forward roll as well. He’s made some strong gains, certainly in the gym. We’re looking forward to the start of the season and really building on last year in the ruck and playing forward.

Season by Season

Season by Season

Darcy was thrown in the deep-end as injury sidelined number one ruckman Aaron Sandilands for most of 2017. The 19-year-old held his own as Freo’s lone specialist ruckman, averaging 34 hit outs per game from eight games, often against more experienced opponents.
