Draft assessment a long game

Friends Adam Cerra and Andrew Brayshaw are overjoyed to join Fremantle together.

Fremantle must be favourites to be the big winner when the 2017 draft is reviewed some time in the early 2030s, according to the The Age newspaper’s Daniel Cherny.

“There had been much to-ing and fro-ing from pundits about which of the Victorian midfield triumvirate – Andy Brayshaw, Adam Cerra and Luke Davies-Uniacke – the Dockers would select with prized picks two and five,” Cherny wrote in a post-draft analysis piece posted on theage.com.au

“Brayshaw had been the outsider for pick two in the days leading up to the draft.

“But as North Melbourne national recruiting manager Mark Finnigan later suggested, there was little between the first five or six players in this group, so it should not have been surprising that the Dockers took Brayshaw at No.2 before adding Cerra three picks later.

Fyfe's new housemate

Pick 2 Andrew Brayshaw will live with Nat Fyfe when he moves to Perth to play for Fremantle.

Speaking at the club’s Fremantle Dockers Foundation Gala Ball on Saturday night at Subiaco Oval, captain Nat Fyfe gave an insight into the transition of the club’s eight newest recruits. 

Pick no. 2 in Friday night’s NAB AFL Draft Andrew Brayshaw will call Fyfe’s beachside house home when he touches down in Perth to start his AFL journey. 

Eighteen-year-old Brayshaw was drafted from the Sandringham Dragons and will be making the move across from Melbourne on Sunday morning.

“He will come across tomorrow night, so I’ll have three players living with me” Fyfe said.

“Griffin Logue and Alex Pearce are already there and with Andrew it’s going to be a full house.”

Fyfe’s house wont be full for too long, with Alex Pearce set to move out after buying his own place earlier this month.

Sea change the cherry on top for Cerra

Adam Cerra was selected at pick 5 by Fremantle.

New draftee Adam Cerra says he won’t mind leaving the Melbourne weather behind to start a new life at Freo, after the club selected the elite midfield talent with pick no.5 at the NAB AFL National Draft at the Sydney Showgrounds.

The Eastern Ranges product hails from Melbourne but with a love of the sun and sea, Cerra says he will have no issues relocating to WA.

While Cerra is most looking forward to starting pre-season and playing footy, he added that he’s also excited about hitting the beach this summer.

“I can’t wait to start pre-season,” Cerra said.

“Also the beaches, the weather, the whole environment over there.

“Perth’s quite different to Melbourne, especially during the middle of the year as I’m not a big fan of winter. 

“I can’t wait to get over there, try the lifestyle and at the end of the day play footy, which is what I...

‘It’s unbelievable’ – Dixon

Hugh Dixon was selected with pick #44 in the NAB AFL National Draft.

Being drafted to the Fremantle Dockers was a dream come true for Hugh Dixon. 

The 18-year-old was watching the draft at home in Longley, Tasmania when he heard his name called out at pick 44 in Friday’s NAB AFL Draft.

“I am extremely excited. I’m so emotional at the moment, I can’t even begin to describe what is going through my head,” Dixon said.

“I was at home with my family and friends and it got a bit hectic when my name got called out.

“It’s unbelievable.”

The 195cms left-footer played as a tall forward in the national championships where he averaged 11 disposals, 3.5 marks, four tackles and 9.1 goals in four games.

Dixon said his focus for his first year on an AFL list was to learn as much as he could and build his running capacity.

“I just want to develop myself, make sure I put on a bit of weight and...

Switkowski soaking it all in

Watch the highlights from our No.73 pick form the NAB AFL Draft

How are you feeling?
I’m a little bit in shock at the moment, I didn’t really expect to be picked up so I don’t really know how to feel right now. I thought if something like that happened I’d be really excited and be up and celebrating but it just doesn’t really feel real yet. It’s a weird feeling I’ve never felt this before.

Did you watch the draft with your family?
I had training tonight so I stayed at the club with some of my mates and watched it with them. I’m going to head home to see my family now.

How did your friends react when your name got called out?
They went crazy! They were just so happy for me. I wasn’t saying anything because I just couldn’t believe it. They were going crazy.

What about your family?
I’m on my way to see my mum (Pauline) dad (Robert) and my three brothers (Ben, Mason and Matthew) now. I...

Emotional evening for Meek

Pick #69 - Lloyd Meek Freo have picked up 202cm ruckman Lloyd Meek at pick #69 in the NAB AFL Draft.

Fremantle’s new recruit Lloyd Meek is looking forward to learning from fellow ruckman Aaron Sandilands as well as re-connecting with old teammate Sean Darcy.

“It will be good to compete against Sean at training but I am really looking forward to working with him and learning a lot,” Meek said.

Having been to Fremantle just once before to play against WA in last year’s U18’s Championship, Meek remembers the city fondly reminiscing on Cottesloe Beach and Domain Stadium.

'I'm lost for words' - Jones

Scott Jones was selected with pick #75 in the NAB AFL National Draft.

How are you feeling right now?
It’s a pretty weird feeling to try and describe, it’s out of the blue a little bit. I wasn’t really expecting anything until maybe Monday and the Rookie Draft. It’s a bit of a shock and it’s left me a little bit lost for words, but I am really grateful for the opportunity. To be given the chance after everything that I’ve been through is great.

Can you tell us a little bit about your journey?
Breaking my leg in round one of my draft year in 2013 was a big set back. After an okay start to under 18’s and then taking a while to recover from that and then doing my ACL in 2015 after finally getting back in good form. That put me out for about six months, so to finally get back and have an alright year last year and then back it up this year with being able to debut for East Perth was...
