Andrew Brayshaw, Connor Blakely on deck as Fremantle kick off their 2019 preparations

Fremantle have kicked off their 2019 pre-season with the first to fourth year players hitting the track at their Cockburn base this morning.
The Dockers had good numbers at the first session, with Darcy Tucker the only player who missed the majority of the almost two-hour session.
Tucker, who played 17 games this season, was late out and did a bit of kicking but appeared to spend most of his time in the gym.
Heading into their fifth seasons, Connor Blakely and Ed Langdon were the most senior figures on the track, with 2016 top draft pick Griffin Logue looking fit after a 2018 ruined by foot and ankle problems.
Promising key forward Hugh Dixon and midfielder Tom North also showed good signs after tough debut seasons at the club.
Last year’s No.2 draft selection Andrew Brayshaw, who suffered serious mouth injuries after a strike from Andrew Gaff late in the season, also appeared to be in good spirits on his return after time with family in Melbourne.
The session involved plenty of ball work and running, with coach Ross Lyon watching on for most of it and having a long discussion with high performance manager Jason Weber
Star pair Michael Walters and Stephen Hill are not due back at training yet but did some running and kicking away from the main group.
Ethan Hughes and Ryan Nyhuis, who have both been de-listed but will be re-listed in the rookie draft, were on the track with their teammates.
