Dockers rookies fighting to stay in team


Fremantle will begin talks today to decide which three rookies to drop off their senior list after Sunday’s western derby.

Alex Silvagni, Matt de Boer, Clancee Pearce and Jay van Berlo have all played key roles for Fremantle this season, but with injured trio Antoni Grover, Tim Ruffles and Scott Thornton set to return next week, the Dockers must drop three rookies from their main list.

Silvagni and van Berlo have played every game this year, de Boer has been selected three times and Pearce has played in the past two matches.

With the return of Tim Ruffles and Scott Thornton to the main list from the long term injury list, Jay van Berlo and Clancee Pearce are now back on the rookie list.

Freo had off-night, Harvey concedes


FREMANTLE coach Mark Harvey concedes his side strayed from the high-pressure football that has become its trademark this season in an uninspiring 39-point win over Richmond on Anzac Day.

Fourth-placed Fremantle conceded the first five goals of the match on Sunday night, giving Richmond’s midfielders time and space on Subiaco Oval.

A 27-point deficit late in the first term eventually became a comfortable win, but Harvey wasn’t paying his side too many compliments post match.

“It was a scrappy game, probably reflective of a big build-up to an Anzac game and two young sides,” he said.

“At the end we walk away from a game where we didn’t play very well, but that can be reflective of the opposition, and I think Richmond’s improving.

“It wasn’t our best performance, but if we can finish up winning a game by 40-odd points then I think that’s the point.

Licuria guides Freo’s comeback kid


COLLINGWOOD assistant coach Paul Licuria has emerged as an unlikely ally for Fremantle midfielder Rhys Palmer as the promising youngster attempts to make a successful AFL return after having his right knee reconstructed.

Palmer travelled to Melbourne with Fremantle in round four as part of a planned football education trip and had breakfast with Licuria, who overcame two knee reconstructions as a teenager to win consecutive Copeland Trophies at Collingwood in a 192-game career.

Former Collingwood high performance manager Simon Lloyd, who is now in charge of Fremantle’s development academy, saw the opportunity for Palmer to learn from Licuria’s experience and arranged the meeting.
