Senior development coach Marc Webb runs through how the 13 Fremantle-listed players fared.

Stefan Giro
Played on ball for the game and ended up with 32 possessions, 10 clearances and eight tackles. He built into the game and his outside run helped Peel, especially in the first half and near the end of the game. He showed some good signs with his pressure in the contest.

Harley Bennell
Played his first game back this year. Harley had 30 possessions, he was clean and good in the contest with seven clearances. He was also pushed forward and kicked two goals in a good return from injury.

Mitch Crowden
Played on ball for the game. He had 29 possessions, seven tackles and seven clearances. Mitch worked hard inside the contest to give Peel first use and his pressure to chase and tackle continues to be impressive in his WAFL performances.

Travis Colyer
Played on the wing for the game. He had 25 possessions and his run, spread and composure with the ball was good. He was able to give Peel opportunities with some of his inside 50 use.

Lachie Schultz
Played forward and inside mid. He had 23 possessions and his chase and tackle was strong once again. He applied some good forward pressure and he crumbed well to kick two goals.

Tobe Watson
Played back for the game. Tobe overlapped well with his run off, he had 21 possessions, took some important rebounding marks and helped roll off to spoil and support his defenders.

Tom North
Played across half back and went to the wing later in the game. Tom was solid with his defensive work and his one-on-one work in a change of role. He still got a bit of the ball with 19 possessions and he was able to create off half back.

Jason Carter
Played half back for the game. He was clean around the contest and he finished with 16 possessions. He worked well between the lines and was able to link up with his kick.

Ryan Nyhuis
Played back in a solid tussle with Andrew Strijk in the first half. Ryan showed some strong support for his fellow defenders. He was able to roll off and intercept and then at the right times, he rebounded and set Peel up off half back.

Cam McCarthy
Played forward as a lead up target. He ended up wtih five marks, 14 possessions and an important goal in the second half to give Peel some momentum. He provided a good contest as a forward.

Griffin Logue
Played back for the game where he had a good contest with Tyler Keitel. Griffin played some good one-on-one football, he spoiled, followed up and rebounded off the last line of defence. 

Scott Jones
Played in the ruck and forward. Scott showed improvement in his centre square bounce and boundary throw in work this week. He finished with 33 hitouts and put some good pressure around the contest with his smothers and chases to gave Peel good first use.

Lloyd Meek
Played forward and in the ruck, he had 27 hitouts, provided a good target in the forwardline. He also hit scoreboard, kicking 2.1 for the game.
