Fremantle captain Nat Fyfe’s long-awaited AFL return official, named at half-forward against Hawthorn

Fremantle have confirmed Nat Fyfe’s long-awaited AFL return, with the skipper named at half-forward for the Dockers.

The two-time Brownlow medallist has spent more than 10 months on the sidelines, overcoming multiple surgeries on his troublesome shoulder and back.

But after getting through his Peel Thunder debut unscathed, Fyfe will play his first AFL game of season 2022.

The 30-year-old is joined by a fellow All-Australian in Michael Walters and forward Sam Switkowski as Freo’s inclusions up forward.

The talented trio replaced Darcy Tucker (omitted), Lloyd Meek (omitted), Michael Frederick (suspension) and Mitch Crowden (medical-sub).

Bailey Banfield has retained his place in Fremantle’s starting line-up after a breakout four goal performance against Brisbane.

While the versatile Griffin Logue has been named in defence after spending the past fortnight up forward.

Josh Treacy has been named emergency alongside Tucker, Crowden and Meek with one to be named medical sub before the match.
