VFL product an AFL Rising Star

VFL product an AFL Rising Star

VFL product Luke Ryan has become Fremantle’s first Rising Star nominee in more than 12 months following an impressive display in the Round 20 win over Gold Coast.

Ryan gathered 28 possessions, while at the same time setting a club record (nine) for intercept marks taken by a Docker.

After winning the Fothergill-Round Medal – which is awarded to the most promising player in the VFL – the Calder Cannon-turned-Coburg Lion was selected with pick no.66 in last year’s National Draft.

After impressing with Peel Thunder in the WAFL, Ryan made his debut in Round 11 against Collingwood.
