We bought in - Blakely PDF Print E-mail

Simpson Medallist Connor Blakley believes Peel’s Grand Final success stemmed from the Fremantle players buying into Peel Thunder’s game plan.

Blakely, who was one of 17 Fremantle players representing Peel against Subiaco on Sunday at Domain Stadium, said the relationship between all of the players was vital.

“I think all the Peel and Freo boys gelled so well together and I think that was strength of what happened throughout the finals series,” he said.

“We got along so well and we really bought into all the things Shep (Peel coach Cam Shepherd) wanted us to do and we stuck to the game plan really well and fought right to the end.”

Blakely, who finished with 38 possessions while going toe-to-toe with Subiaco’s Kyle Horsley, edged out fellow midfielder Ed Langdon and forward Shane Yarran for the best-on-ground award.

“Obviously Shane Yarran had a pretty strong game, kicking five goals and Ed Langdon was really strong in the midfield and on the wing,” he said.

“I was pretty surprised actually.”

Blakely was dropped from the Fremantle side in round 19 to find some form in the WAFL and he believes it was the right call despite conjecture that it was to qualify him for finals.

A hardened team performance has delivered Peel Thunder it’s maiden WAFL Premiership in a spiteful 23-point win against Subiaco in front of a crowd of 15,031 at Domain Stadium on Sunday.

Tempers were on edge as Peel and the Lions fought tooth and nail for first possession, with the Thunder eventually scoring 11.13 (79) to Subiaco’s 8.8 (56).

Big-bodied Fremantle midfielders Matt de Boer (30 possessions) and Simpson medallist Connor Blakely (38 possessions, five marks) were outstanding in the clinches, while Ed Langdon (39 possessions, eight marks) and Tendai Mzungu (30 possessions, seven marks) provided run all day.

De Boer’s presence in close was telling, as were his clean hands. The 26-year-old finished with 14 tackles performance that typified the quality of his season.

Blakely – who won the Simpson Medal for best on ground – was equally impressive and showed the evasiveness and two-way running that earned him 15 senior appearances for Fremantle in 2016.

On the wing, Ed Langdon had a day out. The 20-year-old midfielder, who on Wednesday extended his contract at Fremantle for 2017, ran hard on the long expanses of Domain Stadium.

He capped off his afternoon with an impressive snap on the boundary to seal the win.

Veteran midfielder Rory O’Brien was again impressive around the contest, collecting 26 possessions and driving the Thunder inside 50 on three occasions.

But while Peel’s midfielders were damaging, it was perhaps the defensive efforts of full back Alex Silvagni that carried the most weight.

Opposed to Subiaco forward Hamish Shepheard, who before Sunday’s match had booted 51 goals in 2016, Silvagni was dominant down back.

The defender positioned himself well, intercepted the play effectively and reeled in eight marks, while keeping Shepheard goalless.

Fremantle’s young midfield brigade showed the future is bright with a commanding display in Peel Thunder’s Preliminary Final win over South Fremantle on Sunday at Fremantle Oval.
Connor Blakely stole the show with 27 disposals to half-time, before finishing with 42 posessions, while young winger Darcy Tucker (27 disposals, five tackles and a goal) provided an outlet on the wing.
Key forward Michael Apeness said Blakely brought a hard edge to the team.
“He brings grunt to the side, getting the ball forward for us,” he said.
“He lays lots of tackles and that’s why we love him.”
Peel moved the ball quickly through the middle of the ground.
Matt de Boer (29 disposals, 10 tackles) was again prolific as he benefitted from the ruck dominance of Zac Clarke and Jon Griffin and finished with two goals.
Griffin spent most of the game in the forward line, kicking a goal, while Clarke collected 16 disposals.
Apeness said the team had been working on ball movement and hadn’t strayed from the plan when challenged.
“We’ve been practicing ball movement, stoppages and defensive training,” he said.
“We were challenged a couple of times today and stuck to what we know."

The signing of four more players to Fremantle’s women’s team and the announcement of two major sponsors is an important and exciting development for the club as it looks ahead to the inaugural season of the national women’s league.

Commonwealth Games gold medallist Kim Mickle joins priority signings Ebony Antonio and Kirby Bentley, along with fellow rookie Gabby O’Sullivan, on Fremantle’s list.

Coach Michelle Cowan said the announcement was an important step for the team.

“A really exciting day for us today as we add an extra four girls to our team,” she said.

“It’s been an exciting process and we look forward to building to October 12 when we take to the draft as well.”

Fremantle CEO Steve Rosich said the players were excited by the opportunity to be part of the inaugural season.

“You can see the excitement in their eyes and the charisma that they have and (they are) just proud to be associated with this competition. Congratulations to the AFL, there will be over 200 elite women athletes playing in the women’s league in season 2017,” he said.

Fremantle also announced major sponsors Woodside and Programmed have extended their relationship with the club by signing on as co-major sponsors of the women’s team.

Rosich said the announcement highlighted Fremantle’s commitment to the 2017 national league.

“This showcases the importance and excitement of the new women’s league for the first season in 2017 and showcases that this season, which is fast upon us, is eagerly anticipated,” he said.
