Fremantle Dockers forward Michael Walters full of praise for youngsters who drove club back to AFL finals

Fremantle star Michael Walters has declared the pain of a lengthy re-build now feels worth it after the Dockers locked away a top-eight position and ended their finals drought following Saturday’s win over the Western Bulldogs.

The Dockers haven’t played finals since 2015 and Walters joined Nat Fyfe, David Mundy and Matt Taberner as the small group of players to have been part of that September campaign and still be on the list. Key defender Alex Pearce also played during 2015 but didn’t appear in any finals matches.

Having seen a change of coach and dramatic list overhaul, Fremantle experienced plenty of pain since then. But Walters said knowing the club would play finals again made him appreciate the hard work that everyone had done.

“Definitely,” he said when asked if the pain was worth it.
