WAFL: Peel learn from Lions Peel Thunder came up against a dominant Subiaco outfit at Leederville Oval on Saturday

Peel Thunder fell to Subiaco by 62 points at Leederville Oval on Saturday.

Senior development coach Marc Webb runs through how the 13 Fremantle players fared in the game.

Jason Carter
Played back for the day, he had 23 possessions and presented well where he was clean and strong with the ball.

Stefan Giro
Played on the wing for the day. His run output was very good as well as his overlap from the contest.
 

Tom North
Played on the ball and on the wing, he ended up with six clearances in a tough day for the midfield group. He was one of Peel’s better contributors with five inside 50s.

Connor Blakely
Made a return from injury where he played inside mid and as a defender.
He showed some promising signs in the second half, where he was clean around the contest and laid some strong tackles for a successful first game back.

Luke Valente
Played on ball for the game. He pressured around the contest with six tackles and five clearances and he continues to build his running base to help with his transition.
 

Brennan Cox
Played in defence for the first half then as a forward. It was tough early with Subiaco having the majority of the ball in the first half. He led consistently in the second half.

Tobe Watson
Played back for the game. He defended well, spoiled, brought the ball to ground and was also able to roll off and take a couple of good intercept marks.

Mitch Crowden
Played on ball and forward for the day. He was ok around the contest with four clearances and finished with 15 possessions.

Brett Bewley
Played forward and on the wing. He was another who worked hard for the day but didn’t get much reward with 14 possessions and three clearances.

Lachie Schultz
Played forward for the day. Again he showed signs with his pressure around the contest and his release. Subiaco made it tough on the Peel forwards and Lachie tried hard to put the pressure on and stop the exits.

Sean Darcy
Played in the ruck and forward. He had a good battle with Lachlan Delahunty and Timothy Sutherland. He ended up with 35 hitouts and five clearances and started to work into the game later on as a forward where he kicked a goal.

Scott Jones
Played as a forward and in the ruck. He ended up with 20 hitouts and he presented down the line in a tough day for the team.

Hugh Dixon
Played forward for the game and kicked a goal. Was another who presented down the line with limited opportunities.

Lloyd Meek
Played in the ruck in the reserves where he had 47 hitouts. He had some strong hit and follow up around the contest and he made the most of the opportunity to play a full game in the ruck, where he acquitted himself well.
