Six Fremantle-listed players took the field in Peel Thunder’s one-point loss against Perth at Lane Group Stadium. Here’s how they fared.

Neil Erasmus: A late inclusion for Zak Pretty, Erasmus was one of the Thunder’s best, with his excellent disposal in the corridor a highlight. Unfortunately, he missed a late shot at goal which would have put his side in front for the first time in the game.

Connor Blakely: The reliable midfielder worked hard around the ground and set up several promising forward entries.

Nathan Wilson: Wilson was lively (16 disposals) and came back on the field after appearing to injure his ankle in a contest.

Sam Sturt: Made the most of his opportunities up forward, booting three goals from 10 disposals.

Ethan Hughes: Dockers officials would have been pleased with Hughes’ work rate at each contest.

Karl Worner: Had 21 disposals, seven marks and two tackles, but missed a gettable shot in the final quarter which would have put the Thunder in front.
