Andrew Brayshaw, Will Brodie show lead Fremantle Dockers to win over North Melbourne Kangaroos as Cameron Zurhaar takes flying mark

That sort of assuredness is something North Melbourne would desperately love right now as their forays forward so often ended in a skill error or an intercept mark as they don’t yet have the skill or understanding to move the ball cleanly at AFL level.

It’s hard to fault the effort of the Roos but it is fair to question their poise, their ability to run to accessible areas for their teammates and how they can create more opportunities to score as they were few and far between on this night.

Zurhaar takes flight

Cameron Zurhaar is always a threat to take to the sky and he came up with a classic speccy mark in the second quarter.

The Kangaroos key forward climbed on top of the shoulders of teammate Todd Goldstein and pulled in the mark, the veteran ruckman might be a little disappointed his fellow Roo didn’t choose to climb on Fremantle ruckman Sean Darcy who was standing alongside him.

Zurhaar played on and tried to snap a goal but was called back. He still kept his nerve and kicked the goal

It was one of the rare highlights for the Kangaroos and could be a mark of the year chance. Zurhaar finished with two goals.

Not so shy Jye

Fremantle gave first-round pick Jye Amiss his debut and the No.8 pick showed promise from the opening minutes finding himself one-out in the forward line and bumping opponent Aidan Corr out of the way and taking a mark 40 metres from goal.

The 18-year-old left-footer went back and went on his stuttering run-up before slotting the goal with his first kick in AFL football with his family celebrating wildly in a corporate box.

“I couldn’t wait to get out here after captain’s run on Thursday,” Amiss told Fox Footy.

“I didn’t expect that first goal to happen like that but it was fun to have the boys get around me.

“This was a dream come true.”

The Busselton, Western Australia native and former East Perth goal-kicker showed some other assured touches finishing with two goals. On first viewing looks like he could be a very efficient foil for full-forward Matt Taberner.

The Dockers received the pick used on Amiss as part of Adam Cerra’s trade to Carlton and while he has a lot of work to do, he looks someone who could make a difference for Fremantle both this year and beyond.
