Nine Fremantle played run out for Peel Thunder in their seven-point loss to East Perth on Saturday at David Grays Arena.
Development coach Tendai Mzungu runs through how each player fared.
Connor played through the midfield and he was tagged in the second half. He worked through the tag really well and was a good leader on the day. He showed some good bursts out of the stoppage, worked hard across the ground and was a strong contributor. He also had a scoreboard impact with two goals.
Nathan played up on the wing compared to his usual role across half back. He gave Peel a lot of run and competed strongly. He used the ball well at times, which is an area he’s working on. He had 26 disposals and 10 marks, which were both career highs for him.
Tobe played at half back. He was reliable in defence, used the ball well and helped organise a younger backline group. He played his role very well.
Lloyd had a really good battle with Scott Jones in the ruck. They both had their moments during the game but Lloyd was strong for Peel on the day. He gave the midfield, particularly in the first half, a good look at it and helped Peel win a lot of clearances early.
Stef played mostly forward this week compared to his usual role on the wing. As a high half forward, he kicked a couple of goals early and looked really dangerous when he was around the ball. He’s still trying to build but it was a step in the right direction.
Bailey could have had a pretty big day in front of goals, in the end he kicked 2.3 while giving Peel a good target up forward. He’s really reliable and you know what you’re going to get in terms of contest and how he organises the players. He was a good contributor on the day.
Joel split his time, he played mostly forward but also had some runs through the midfield. He worked hard on outlets and provided some good run. He kept working hard for the full four quarters.
Luke had some good moments, particularly in the last quarter when the game was up for grabs, he came into the game and had an impact particularly at clearances.
Reece played in the back half. He was diligent to his role, he played deep for most of the game and was well organised behind the ball. Like Tobe, he gave good direction to the younger backs and had some good moments with the ball.
