A modern-day great of the game and one of only a handful of players to have won multiple Brownlow medals, Nat Fyfe is one of the most dominant midfielders in the competition and a respected leader of the Fremantle Football Club.
Selected by Fremantle with the 20th pick in the 2009 AFL Draft, Fyfe went on to make his debut in round 5 against Richmond, and within his first two games Fyfe was already nominated for both mark and goal of the week, highlighting his freakish talent. Fyfe’s ability at 192cm and 96kg to move as well as the smaller midfielders allowing him to expose opponents both in the air and on the ground.
In 2013, Fyfe was a key player in the Dockers’ run to their first-ever Grand Final, but unfortunately fell short of Premiership glory against Hawthorn by 15 points in the decider. Fyfe’s dominant season in the club’s historic season was recognised by taking out the Doig Medal that year and the following year as his star continued to rise.
In 2015, Fyfe soared to new heights, named in the All-Australian team, taking out the AFL Players’ Association MVP award and becoming the first-ever Fremantle footballer to win the Brownlow Medal.
Taking on the role as skipper in 2017, Fyfe’s game transformed with the added responsibility of leading his team – a role which has seen him flourish.
In 2019, Fyfe capped off another remarkable individual year by claiming his second Brownlow Medal, polling in 13 of the 20 games he played during the season.
Throughout all his individual accolades, Fyfe has remained a down-to-earth, affable and much-loved character of the game.
