Former Suns to rise together at Freo

Get to know Freo's new recruit Brandon Matera.

A training reunion with former Gold Coast teammate Harley Bennell has Brandon Matera looking forward to the return of the full Fremantle squad this coming Monday.

Every player, apart from fellow new recruit Nathan Wilson, will be back at Fremantle for pre-season training on 20 November, with Wilson given more time due to playing finals for GWS.

Kicking 124 goals from 101 games for the Suns from 2011 to 2017, Matera has already been reunited with Bennell, who arrived at Freo during the 2015 off-season.

Matera was at the WAFL Grand Final at Domain Stadium on 24 September, watching younger brother Bailey in Subiaco’s reserves premiership win over South Fremantle.

“I came back for the WAFL grand final and saw Harley over that weekend,” Matera said.

“He is pretty excited, I told him then I was coming back so we’ve kept in contact almost...

Fyfe’s special moment

Nat Fyfe spoke to media ahead of Saturday night's second IRS test at Domain Stadium.

A spectacular goal against Ireland will long go down as one of Nat Fyfe’s favourite sporting memories but the Fremantle captain is motivated for more when Australia runs out for the second Virgin International Rules Series test on Saturday night at Domain Stadium.

Fyfe’s six-pointer on the run provided the highlight from the first test and brought the group of elite Australians, who are usually fierce opponents, together as fans celebrated at Adelaide Oval.

“Coming into this series I thought I’d be pretty pumped to play,” Fyfe said.

“But once I pulled the emblem on and I was running out alongside guys like Luke Shuey, Chad Wingard, Scott Pendlebury, Eddie Betts, the names go on. Representing the country and having the fans behind us was pretty special. 

“When I kicked that goal and the whole team...

Matera looks to lure family back to their footy roots

An easy decision: Matera Brandon Matera chats to the media after arriving at the Fremantle Dockers.

With a family name famous in WA football, Brandon Matera hopes he can continue his 2017 form and draw his family back to Fremantle.

The Matera name is famous in WA football with Brandon’s father Wally and uncles Peter and Phil forging a career at South Fremantle in the WAFL prior their AFL days, with Wally winning three best and fairests during his 142 games for the Bulldogs.

In the AFL, all three represented West Coast and Wally also represented Fitzroy, playing 32 games for the Lions between 1989 and 1990.

Now a Fremantle Docker, Brandon Matera says he hopes to draw his family back to their roots.

“We all keep in contact, Phil is probably the main one besides my dad, who calls me quite a bit,” Matera said. 

“He was trying to pull me to West Coast, but I said by the end of this...

New recruit recovered and ready

Brandon Matera addresses the media before Wednesday's training session.

Brandon Matera’s early start to his first pre-season at Fremantle is unrestricted by a foot injury that saw him miss the second half of the 2017 season.

The former Gold Coast Sun said he could have played late in the year but decided it was better to get the additional rest.

Matera played 101 games and kicked 124 goals for Gold Coast from 2011 to 2017 and was traded to Fremantle for a future third round selection. 

“I had a stress fracture, fourth metatarsal, it wasn’t too nice,” Matera said.

“It’s all good (now), I probably could have played the last couple of games but I didn’t want to risk it, so I rested for the rest of the year.

“I’ll be full bore and ready to go (this pre-season).” 

Matera said the injury was the impetus to seek a move back to WA.

“You don’t really think that far ahead in your career, I...

Fyfe's round ball reign began in Spain

AFL 2017 IRS Series - Australia v Ireland

Nat Fyfe was a standout for Australia in the 10-point win over Ireland on Sunday.

Mastering the round ball at a Spanish soccer club had Fremantle skipper Nat Fyfe ready for the Virgin Australia International Rules Series.

Fyfe was Australia's most dangerous forward in Sunday's 10-point win against Ireland in the first Test.

The 2015 Brownlow Medallist kicked three overs, but the highlight was his goal in the third quarter when he blasted the ball off the goal post and into the back of the net.

Fremantle's head of strength and conditioning Jason Weber gave Fyfe a training program based on high-end speed running to get him ready for the IRS, something he wouldn't normally do at this time of the year.

Fyfe also got himself ready to kick the round ball when he spent part of his off-season training in Spain.

"I trained in Spain for a few weeks, so I took a round ball to Spain and trained...

Tucker looks up to AFL's powerhouse players

Darcy Tucker addressed the media ahead of training on Monday.

Motivated to be able to one-day match it with the AFL’s best midfielders, Darcy Tucker is approaching the coming pre-season as another opportunity to add to his strength and fitness base.

The 20-year-old says he’s added between six to eight kilograms since his arrival at Fremantle with pick 27 in the 2015 National Draft, including condition he has put on since wrapping up the 2017 season with Freo, where he played 19 games.

“I probably added one or two kilos over the off-season but not too much,” Tucker said.

“I’m more looking to build my running speed and stuff like that.

“I’m probably about six, seven or eight kilos bigger than when I first arrived but I’m just going to try and build that running capacity to match it with AFL midfielders.”

Tucker has enjoyed his opportunities to show his pace on the wing but has an...

Matera up and running at Freo

Brandon Matera in action in his first training session for Freo.

Brandon Matera was one of eight Freo players to commence their pre-season on Monday morning at Victor George Kailis Oval.

While all first to four-year players are now back on deck, Matera’s appearance at training was voluntary with his official return date at the club set for 20 November.

Alongside Matera, Brennan Cox, Sean Darcy, Taylin Duman, Griffin Logue, Ryan Nyhuis, Luke Ryan and Luke Strnadica all started their first session on light running duties, with the group given an extra week due to their commitments with Peel in the 2017 WAFL finals series.

Starting their second week or training, Connor Blakely, Brady Grey, Ethan Hughes, Cam McCarthy and Darcy Tucker completed sprints as a part of their warm-up before both groups combined for a number of football drills.

‘I knew I had to move’ – young Docker settled at Freo

Darcy Tucker addressed the media ahead of training on Monday.

Attending boarding school has helped Darcy Tucker adapt to life in a new state, with the 20-year-old back in WA and ready for a third pre-season.

After the ‘go home factor’ played a significant role in the 2017 trade period, Tucker was asked by media on Monday regarding his own feelings about living away from home. 

Growing up in Horsham, almost equidistant between Melbourne and Adelaide in country Victoria, Tucker said he accepted very early on that he needed to leave home to chase his AFL dream.

“I grew up three and a half hours from Melbourne, so I knew growing up, that if I wanted to play AFL I’d have to move regardless,” Tucker said. 

“I think that helped, I went to boarding school for a couple years as well, so I’ve been away from home for four or five years now. 

“I think that definitely helped. Boarding school...
