#AFLNorthFreo was the complete performance with dominance across the board! It was stacked with incredible individual performances, highlights and many underrated moments. Here’s my fave of the lot:
So great to see this guy get some reward for effort with a mini bag! He was all over the place on sat with 100% effort on display at all times. I enjoyed this little fend off he produced, a sign his confidence is developing too 💪
I was really impressed with Lobb on sat, thought it was one of his best games of the season! He worked up the ground and marked everything, this particular one I loved; the way he glides in is pure elegance 😍
Great kick from Hill this! Lowered his eyes, identified the best option and nailed it 🤝
Was quite impressed by this intercept from Acres too, thought it was Lobb at first with the way he took it! Hasn’t he proved to be an incredible recruit over the past 3 weeks, couldn’t be more excited to have him on board 😍
This kick was incredible from Fyfe! Couldn’t have found the space to put it in better 👏
Watson continues to impress with his confidence and composure! Seven marks including this one is a brilliant output, he’s got it 💪
I really really enjoyed Darcy’s game, I thought he worked his ass off! In so many situations he was going in for second and third efforts like this contest here. He’s taken his game to another level over the past few weeks 🙌
Loved this commitment from Walters, the perfect hip & shoulder bump 👊
Speaking of second and third efforts, how good was Serong again! His disposal count was lower than the past few weeks, but he had the more pressure acts than any other Freo player and was tackling at every opportunity! And we got to see another one of these magic handpasses 😍
Here is another example of Darcy repeating efforts, wins the tap but wasn’t to advantage of anyone so he gets the ball himself and then goes lays the tackle! Great work from the big guy 💪
How Serong found himself a way out of this traffic I’ll never know, but the way he navigated it to get the ball to Lobb leading to a Freo goal was incredible 😍
We knew from his time as a key forward that Cox’s form and confidence go hand in hand. Watching his confidence skyrocket in this role to the point that he is backing himself if to pull off things like this is wonderful to see 👏
Don’t argue with Darcy 🤚
Freo elected to use the corridor to move the ball often throughout this game continuing on from their great work last week with this plan, and why not when you have elite ball users like Mundy who can completely open up a game with one kick from half back 🙌
Here’s another show of this confidence from Cox, two on one and he was never in doubt 👊
This clearance was incredible from Brayshaw! Seeing him running and taking bounces like this is a delight, and the kick to Lobb was brilliant too. The mid/forward connection is building 🙌
Hard to see cause Metricon is a hole, but Fyfe soccers this ball out of the congestion perfectly to allow him to run on and pick it up! His contested possession work is insane 😍
Schultz playing a little bit further from goal has been awesome for his game, he works so hard to provide an option and is finding heaps of the ball here. He has gut ran a mile to receive this kick from Acres 👏
Also enjoyed this show of toughness from Schultz, he’s been cleaned up by a guy twice his size and he’s up within seconds and straight to the next contest! If this was Viney it would have been posted everywhere 😅
This glide through pick-up from Serong was Fyfe like, it’s insane how easily he has adapted to this level of the game. So clean and composed 💪
This kick from Taberner was perfect! Field kicking has probably been the only thing that could be taken to another level amongst his form this season so it was great to see him nail a few on sat 👏
On the other side of the kick, this was a brilliant mark from Jesse! If you just watch him closely you’ll notice he leads and leads and leads all game and they’re rarely used, it was great to see him get a few goals from these leads being honoured 👏
The way Fyfe attacks the contest is just incredible, his hunger for the ball and his repeated efforts are amazing 😍
Week in, week out this guy shows insane courage. Had nothing but eyes for the ball here while flying into a contest 😤
You’d love to be a leading to this guy, one of the greatest kicks going around! 🤤
Freos forwardline has been referred to as the final piece of the puzzle in the past few weeks, it’s really exciting to see it falling into place! The cohesion between forwards on sat was unreal 😍
Duman worked this perfectly, I love how casual he was in this passage after intercepting this handball! Was great to see him have another great game following last week 👊
Moments like this show that Walters is just a class above, the way he reads the ball and works under the player is magnificent 🤯
Loved this tackle from Cerra, this was one for the people who like to reassess the draft order often! 🤣
Couldn’t have been happier to see the plan come together for team and am so proud of how strongly they are finishing the season! Don’t want it to end, but am more excited for the future every week! Go Freo #foreverfreo

As the excitement winds down, I thought it would be a great time to look back on the beautiful chaos that was the 2020 season. From JLs reactions, to the emergence of youth it was one to remember with overwhelmingly positive signs for the future. Let’s relive the best of it 💜
Round One v Essendon came after a bonkers week and saw a game in the most bizarre footy circumstances any of us have ever seen. Rory Lobb had a huge game though, taking 4 contested marks alongside 7 score involvements including 2 goals in his best game for the season 💪
After a slow start, Freo’s second half was outstanding with the group’s fighting never give up attitude (something that became a feature of our season) showing through, led by their captain Nat Fyfe throwing everything at him at the game 👊

Our smiles were all as big as Darcy’s on Monday night after a tense finish saw Freo well deserved winners! There’s genuine excitement building at Fremantle, with each week providing more to like. Here’s some moments that have me excited from #AFLDeesFreo:
I really liked how often Freo took to the corridor and moved the ball quickly this round, like this kick from Aish to Serong here that became a scoring opportunity! Great to see Aish back to his best too 💜
Ryan played yet another outstanding game! The whole backline were superb yet again, he’s doing a brilliant job as their on field leader. The intent was set early with Ryan’s hard run to execute this effort 👊

I didn’t give it much of a chance for a Wed night game off of a four day break, but #AFLTigersFreo ended up producing a pretty good game! There were plenty of positive signs throughout it and plenty of moments to like, here are some of my fave individual efforts:
Ryan put in yet another amazing performance to add to his AA campaign! He was a solid ad a rock despite being set a pretty huge task 💪
Serong was a stand out yet again and continues to contribute to the incredible season he is putting together! Love his contested work, he is so intelligent and the speed of his decision making is unreal 👊

Freo V Swans saw yet another coaching masterclass from Longmuir! Every line was firing with Tabs clunking everything and the backline providing the best performance we’ve ever seen from the collective led by Ryan who has cemented his AA spot. Here's my fave moments:
From the moment the ball was bounced he was on! It was yet another brilliant performance to add to his incredible season that is building a solid case for rising star honours. It’s been amazing to watch his confidence and ability to execute grow these past few months 🙌
This is just one of Cox’s 5 contested marks, of which most were intercepts! His form over the past few weeks has been insane, he is growing into an A grade defender right in front of our eyes 😍

With the game plan he made him famous but can no longer execute, JL repaired the Purple Hearts Clarkson broke all those years ago! This game was revolutionary, with all 22 players stepping up and executing the plan with a heap of highlights along way, here’s my favourite of them:
Darcy’s becoming quite the first quarter specialist with the way he’s been bursting out the blocks recently! He was everywhere, and his work the providing a contest on the wing was particularly huge. This was one of a few contested marks he took there that were superb to see 🙌
Loved this tap-on by Brayshaw, when you hear JL talk about how he wants the players to play instinctively moments like this are a positive sign that things are going to plan 💪

How the pass from Crowden 😱 This kick was massive, to hit Schultz that perfectly from that distance is unreal 🙌
I’ve really missed watching Blakely, his aggression in the contest is always so good to watch and takes me back to his early years! I can’t imagine how much pressure he would have felt going into the game but he played his role and did it well. So good to see 🥰
This kid is an excitement machine and I get the feeling we’ll be seeing many chase downs like this throughout his career! Every time he goes near it the crowd goes mad, it’s incredible 🙌
