Fremantle wrapped up an almost three-hour training session on Friday with two 10-minute halves of 18 on 18 football.
The high-scoring affair saw eight goals in total between two evenly matched teams.
The midfield battle pitted experience against youth with Caleb Serong, Adam Cerra and Luke Valente for Yellow hodling their own against Nat Fyfe, David Mundy and Andrew Brayshaw for Purple.
Serong was particularly impressive, winning plenty of the football and using his pace to help set up one goal while kicking another.
All of Freo’s tall forwards hit the scoreboard through Taberner (2) and Treacy for Purple and Lobb kicking one and setting up another for Yellow.
Treacy took four marks in total, including a strong grab on the wing. He then set Liam Henry loose in the middle to hit an open Taberner in the forward line.
Freo’s smalls were active with Mitch Crowden, Travis Colyer and Sam Switkowski all kicking goals while helping contribute to others.
Michael Frederick also used his pace well as he delivered over the back to Colyer for his goal.
Both Hayden Young and Switkowski impressed for Yellow as they looked to put an injury interrupted 2020 behind them.
Joel Hamling’s trademark spoiling down back was also a welcome return, denying Lobb and Lloyd Meek marks inside 50.
As well as Treacy, the clash saw two other new faces take part with Heath Chapman for Yellow and Joel Western for Purple getting involved.
Fremantle assistant coach (defence) Matthew Boyd said the hitout was a good sign of the squad’s fitness.
“It’s great to get into some match play and we’ve done it pretty early in the pre-season,” Boyd said.
“It shows that the high performance staff have done a fantastic job to get the list into a position where they can do some of that high-end footy work.
“We’ll continue to get better after 20 minutes of it today and we’ll look to build that up over the next couple of weeks.”
Boyd was pleased to see Fremantle show positive signs with their ball movement inside 50.
“I thought the way we were able to move the ball at times was good from an offensive perspective,” Boyd said.
“As the team defence coach, we probably have some things to tidy up but that’s all part of it. It was a high quality session today that had real purpose.”
