Fremantle defender Brennan Cox has been left impressed at the commitment shown by his teammates so far in the current off-season period.

With border restrictions in place, it’s meant the majority of Fremantle’s playing group has remained in WA throughout the off-season.

It has seen a large bulk of the playing group come into the Club on various days to complete their individual off-season running and gym programs.

Cox said that he has enjoyed watching the hard work being put in across the group.

“Since I’ve been here, I’ve never seen a group of players train as hard as they have in an off-season,” Cox said.

“We have a group of players that are so dedicated with the way they have gone about the training…I think this year will be a big stepping stone.”

One particular day last week saw a group of around 25 players at the Club completing their programs.

“I caught up with a lot of the boys last week to do a training session,” Cox said.

“All the boys lean on each other to get the best out of each other and push each other harder.

“But mainly it’s been Luke Ryan and Nathan Wilson who I’ve been sticking around with the most this off-season.”

Hailing from South Australia, Cox has managed to return home to visit his loved ones before returning to WA in preparation for the commencement of pre-season.

“I’ve been back to Adelaide and was able to see my family and my friends, which was good because I haven’t seen them for a while because of Covid,” Cox said.

“As for now, I’m just back here getting stuck into training.”
