The Fremantle Football Club confirmed four changes to their playing list on Wednesday.
Brett Bewley, Taylin Duman, Stefan Giro and Tobe Watson were informed that they will not be offered contracts for the 2022 season.
Bewley was selected at pick 59 in the 2018 AFL draft from Williamstown in the VFL, playing 25 games for Fremantle across three seasons – with six games in 2021.
Duman was taken by Fremantle at pick three in the 2016 rookie draft. He played 45 games between 2018 and 2021, including six games to his name this year.
Giro has been on Fremantle’s list for four seasons, after being selected with pick 21 in the 2018 AFL rookie draft. Giro played 10 games in 2018 and a further four matches in 2021 for a total of 14 with the Club.
Watson played 11 games throughout the 2021 season, totalling 14 games across his time at Fremantle. Watson was selected as the 22nd pick overall in the 2019 rookie draft.
Executive general manager of football Peter Bell thanked the players for the contribution they had made to the Club.
“This is always a really difficult time of the year to have to make these decisions,” Bell said.
“I’d like to acknowledge the contributions of Brett, Taylin, Stefan and Tobe to Fremantle.
“They are players of great character, and it will be sad to see them leave the Club.
"A decision will be made later in the week as to each players availability for selection at Peel, for the remaining two fixtures."
Fremantle now have seven spots on the primary and rookie lists available heading into the upcoming trade and draft periods, with the decision not to offer Reece Conca a contract for the 2022 season, the retirement of Stephen Hill and Adam Cerra stating his desire to return to Victoria for family reasons.
Category B rookie Leno Thomas was also released early from his contract.
