Max Beattie

Three train-on players have joined pre-season with hopes of filling the two remaining spots on Fremantle’s list.

Two spots became available earlier this week when the AFL granted approval for Sebit Kuek (knee and shoulder) and Josh Corbett (hip) to be placed on the Club’s long-term injury list while they recover from surgery.

Sam van Rooyen

Sam van Rooyen (Claremont), Patrick Voss (Essendon) and Max Beattie (Woodville-West Torrens) wasted no time joining the action in a mid-week session at Fremantle Oval.

Van Rooyen, the 193cm younger brother of Melbourne key forward Jacob, was overlooked in the AFL National Draft after kicking 22 goals in 14 games with Claremont’s premiership winning Colts side.

Twenty-year-old 194cm Voss is a former Essendon rookie who claimed the Bombers VFL 2023 best and fairest with 30 goals in 17 matches.

Patrick Voss

Beattie, also 20, is a small forward looking for a chance after moving from the Murray Bushrangers to the SANFL in pursuit of his AFL dream.

The Supplemental Selection Period closes on February 15.

List spots can also be held open for the 2024 mid-season draft.
