Paul Hasleby played 208 games for the Fremantle Dockers after being taken at pick No.2 in the 1999 AFL national draft. An All-Australian in 2003, Hasleby holds the record for most Ross Glendinning Medals as best afield in the western derby.
Willie Rioli is yet to confirm his future at West Coast and Paul Hasleby believes Richmond could be the perfect place for the star.
Speculation is swirling that Rory Lobb wants to go to Victoria. Paul Hasleby explains why the Dockers - and other clubs - should stand firm on the destinations of contracted players who seek a trade.
For a team that will finish in the bottom two and to this point of the season only have two wins, at least one or two players need to join Josh Kennedy in leaving if West Coast are serious about a rebuild.
Fremantle have fallen away since their win over Brisbane and ‘Flagmantle’ is in jeopardy after their game plan was picked apart by Sydney. Dockers legend Paul Hasleby goes in depth into what is going wrong.
Fremantle have fallen in love with the boy next door – Luke Jackson. And all the signs are pointing to the fact the Dockers believe the juice is worth the squeeze.
West Coast face a number of decisions in the near future, including who will replace Luke Shuey as the Eagles’ next captain. In his exclusive column, Paul Hasleby reveals who he’d pick to lead them in 2023.
West Coast must continue to perfect their new gameplan and if that means winning more games this year and climbing the ladder, then that’s fine. Because having the number one pick can be over-rated.
Fremantle’s rise in 2022 has made a number of players and coaches a hot commodity and football boss Peter Bell could be the most in-demand, with jobs from West Coast chief executive to boss of the AFL in reach.
They may not have the big names yet but when it’s all said and done Fremantle could have three Brownlow medallists running around together, writes Paul Hasleby.
Right now, West Coast are in the corner copping it from everywhere but behind closed doors, they must be strategising their next big move or two in preparation for their next big fight.
‘Flag-mantle’ might be alive after the Dockers’ win over Melbourne at the weekend, but if they are to snag a premiership before their time they’re in need of a big forward - like Taylor Walker.
If the AFL is not careful, there are a few issues creeping upon them that can go from a small wound to a full-blown injury that could hinder the growth of our great game.
