Peel Thunder defeated East Perth 20.9 (129) to 3.7 (25) at Rushton Park on Saturday.

It was the Thunder's final pre-season hitout before their 2018 WAFL season commences on Good Friday against East Fremantle, played at Rushton Park at 2:10pm.

Joel Hamling pressed his case for a recall with a commanding performance in Peel's 104-point win over East Perth on Saturday.  

After he was considered underdone for Fremantle's season opener, Hamling had about 20 touches in the WAFL practice match and ticked the necessary boxes, according to Peel coach Cam Shepherd.

Young Tasmanian forward Hugh Dixon marked strongly and kicked six goals, while Michael Apeness (10 marks, three goals) made an encouraging return to the field.  

Fremantle's No.5 draft selection, Adam Cerra, was busy with 24 touches and a goal, pressing his claim to join fellow 2017 first-round pick Andrew Brayshaw in the senior team.  

Ruckmen Sean Darcy, Lloyd Meek and Scott Jones dominated the stoppages, while defender Brennan Cox (seven marks) also impressed.
