Six Fremantle-listed player took the feel in Peel Thunder’s big win over West Coast at Mineral Resources Park. Here’s how they fared.

Jye Amiss: The top-10 pick was again among the goals, booting three to make it eight in a fortnight. Growing in confidence with every game.

Liam Henry: Had flashes of brilliance on the outside in his first game back from COVID protocols and linked up well with his forwards.

Connor Blakely: Best-afield in his return from COVID protocols. Dominated in the midfield, racked up the clearances and drove the ball well inside 50.

Ethan Hughes: Continued his strong form down back and barely made a mistake all day.

Sam Sturt: Kicked goal of the day in the third quarter with a brilliant snap around the body off a step, and finished with 3.2 in an eye-catching game.

Nathan Wilson: Wasn’t among the top ball winners but used the ball with class by foot and provided good run and carry from defence.
