Eleven Fremantle players were in action on SUnday for Peel in round five of the WAFL against West Coast’s WAFL team.
Peel ran out 79-point winners in the clash.
Development coach Tendai Mzungu runs through how the players fared.
Stefan played on the wing throughout the game and gave Peel some excellent run on the outside. The way Peel moved the ball helped Stefan get his hands on the footy. He set up a lot of attacking plays and had more than 10 score involvements.
Joel keeps building and his form is improving every week. He used the ball well, he was very clean, drove his legs and set up some offensive plays with 26 disposals, 10 marks and a goal.
Connor worked hard inside through the game and used the ball well by hand and foot. He had 24 disposals, six marks and five inside 50s and you just know what you’re going to get with Connor every week as once again, he competed strongly.
Lloyd’s ruck and follow up work was a feature of his game. He had 29 hitouts and played a strong role in Peel winning the clearances by 20.
It’s great to see Brett back for his first game of the year. He played mostly on the wing and a little bit at half back. He used the ball well, gave Peel some great defensive run and showed his leadership across the ground.
Liam was terrific. Some of his contest work was really strong and obviously, his natural talent showed and he was able to hit the scoreboard and set up a number of goals, giving off three or four during the day.
We were happy to see Josh getting the reward he deserved with a five goal performance. He competed really strongly, he kicked some terrific goals from outside 50 and was a presence all day.
Sam played his role well and worked really hard up the ground to provide options. He used it well and hit the scoreboard with four goals.
Luke played in the midfield and keeps building - his performances are improving each week. He was clean and showed good composure.
Nathan played half back and Peel’s quick ball movement didn’t help at times with the defensive shape behind the ball. It meant Nathan didn’t get a lot of opportunities but, he’s been putting in some good performances together and will continue to build next week.
Unfortunately, Bailey was injured early in the game. He kicked a couple of goals before he came off. It looked like he was going to have a promising day so it was unfortunate for Bailey not to see out the game.
