RATs all round at alfresco Dockers
One of the best wins in the club’s history last weekend likely worsened the COVID outbreak at Fremantle but star defender Luke Ryan hopes the number of players ruled out of Friday night’s clash with North Melbourne remains at six.
Lloyd Meek, Michael Frederick and Griffin Logue joined Rory Lobb, Blake Acres and Travis Colyer in isolation after testing positive to COVID-19, after the team sat on a bus for an hour, a plane for four hours, then another bus to their Cockburn headquarters following the three-point win over Geelong.
All-Australian Ryan, in his regular Thursday segment on 6PR Breakfast, told host Gareth Parker that Saturday’s thrilling triumph was the “best win I’ve ever been a part of” and revealed the clever nickname teammates had given debutant Jye Amiss.
“We’ve had our own little groups all week, we’ve trained together once but everything else is outside, our meetings are outside, gym is outside, gotta wipe down everything after we’ve used it once,” he said.
“Hopefully everything’s all good, I’m doing a RAT in the next half hour.”
Ryan said Amiss, whose teammates called him ‘Nev’, looked like a natural forward with good patterns and “he couldn’t wait to see him play”.
