Fremantle’s best season came in 2013 where Ross Lyon’s men fell short to the Hawthorn dynasty in the Grand Final. Since then, Fremantle have gone down hill even though Lachie Neale and Nat Fyfe have been dominant.
The Dockers finished in 14th on the ladder and once again missed finals this year. This 22-man squad would be competitive but would still struggle against the stronger sides.
Fyfe and Neale will be the key midfielders, clearing Aaron Sandilands’ taps and feeding the ball out to the Hill brothers on the wings.
At the either end of the ground Michael Johnson and Matthew Pavlich provide consistency, while Chris Mayne and Luke McPharlin are both capable in multiple positions.
