Fremantle have swept the voting in the AFLCA Player of the Year award following their round 17 clash with Hawthorn on Saturday afternoon at UTAS Stadium.

Sean Darcy polled a maximum 10 votes for his dominant performance in the clash as he continues to push for a possible All Australian selection.

Darcy won the hit-out battle with opposition ruck Jonathon Ceglar 27-23 and, incredibly, had 10 career bests in various stats for the match.

The 23-year-old finished his game with 25 disposals, five clearances, 16 contested possessions, six score involvements and nine marks, all of which were intercepts.

Darcy made his presence felt all over the ground, falling back to help out Fremantle’s defence at crucial times and winning contested ball out of the middle to help set up many of Fremantle’s inside 50’s.

In his milestone match, Nat Fyfe earned six coaches votes for his 31 disposals, 12 score involvements and goal.

The skipper lead from the front from the first bounce, picking up 13 touches in the opening term to help Fremantle get on top in the midfield battle.

David Mundy also polled six votes as he continued his brilliant season with 30 disposals and two goals, setting up several set shots with his precision kicking inside 50 and calmness around the stoppages.

It is the 11th time the Fremantle veteran has collected 25 or more possessions in a game this year.

Key forward Rory Lobb picked up four votes for his four goals, equalling his career highs for both goals and marks inside 50.

Second year midfielder Caleb Serong also earned four votes after having arguably his best game of the season.

Serong had 30 disposals, 17 contested possessions and a career high 10 clearances and eight inside 50’s.

His 10 clearances were the second-most ever for a Fremantle player aged 20 and under, equalling Paul Hasleby’s 10 clearances against Essendon in 2000 and one short of Hasleby’s 11 against West Coast in 2001.

Fremantle now have two players inside the top 20 on the AFLCA Player of the Year leaderboard with David Mundy in ninth on 60 votes, and Sean Darcy moving up to 15th after polling his 10 votes to finish the round on 45.
