A total of 14 Fremantle-listed players pulled on a Peel Thunder guernsey on Saturday to take on South Fremantle. Here’s how each of them went.

Jye Amiss: Starved so much of opportunity he even ended up in the back pocket.

Roy Benning: A third-quarter goal the highlight of his game in the reserves.

Connor Blakely: Found plenty of the ball, but his kicking let him down.
