A lightning quick player who bursts through the midfield, Danyle Pearce has made a big impact at AFL level, headed by winning the NAB Rising Star in 2006.
Having originally been selected by Port Adelaide in the 2004 NAB AFL Rookie Draft, Pearce was also a part of Port’s Grand Final team in 2007.
A constant focus for opposition teams through his 150-plus games with the Power, Pearce joined Fremantle via the 2012 Free Agency period, providing the Dockers with instant injection of class to the midfield.
Pearce played in every game in the 2013 season including Fremantle’s first ever Grand Final. His 94 games in just four seasons as a Docker, including his 200th AFL game in late 2014, have been of a consistently high standard.
Pearce is on the verge of joining an elite group of players to graduate from the Rookie List to play 250 AFL Games.
