AFL watch: How Fremantle Dockers players fared in Peel Thunder’s clash against East Fremantle
Nine Fremantle players featured in Peel Thunder’s narrow loss to East Fremantle at the WACA Ground on Saturday to go with one in the reserves. Here’s how they fared:
Connor Blakely: Was the pick of the Fremantle-listed players in his return from a finger injury, racking up the possessions in the midfield.
Neil Erasmus: Turned it on after half-time for the second week in a row, including a stunning checkside goal on the run early in the final term.
Joel Hamling: Was excellent down back, producing several goal-saving efforts and rarely losing a one-on-one contest. Kept Jon Marsh relatively quiet other than a two-goal burst.
Matt Johnson: Played a mix of inside midfield and wing. Started strongly before fading late but certainly building confidence after a lengthy injury.
Sebit Kuek: Had a few nice moments but was well held for the most of it by Matthew Jupp, kicking just one goal.
Lloyd Meek: The towering ruckman had an interesting battle with Jeremy Goddard, with both players having their moments of dominant.
Darcy Tucker: Was used in a variety of roles and booted three goals in the first half before getting tagged out of it with one disposal after half-time as he battled a hand injury.
Joel Western: Was creative by foot inside 50, setting up a couple of Blair Bell goals.
Nathan Wilson: Provided some good rebound from the backline with his run and elite ball use.
Karl Worner: Was good in patches without starring. Ended the match with ice on his left quad.
Eric Benning: Was serviceable in the ruck as he builds fitness following an interrupted start to his time at Fremantle.
