2018 SUMMARY
After picking up a PCL injury early in the WAFL season, Darcy broke into the Fremantle starting 22 in round 16 against Melbourne and played all but one of the remaining games of the season. The 20-year-old showed his prowess as a tap ruckman, averaging 33 hitouts per game. The 2019 pre-season will be especially important for Darcy, with a significant opportunity for improvement as he builds his fitness.

Season by Season

Darcy was thrown in the deep-end as injury sidelined number one ruckman Aaron Sandilands for most of 2017. The 19-year-old held his own as Freo’s lone specialist ruckman, averaging 34 hit outs per game from eight games, often against more experienced opponents.
