Mt Barker ruckman Aaron Sandilands has produced another strong performance, helping Fremantle win their sixth game of the season, downing Carlton by 35 points at Domain Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

The Dockers came from behind early in the contest to kick clear in the wet conditions, with Sandilands having plenty of influence in the result.

The big man finished with 39 hit-outs, 11 disposals and four clearances to be among the Dockers’ best players.

Lake Grace product Nat Fyfe gathered 30 touches, five marks and had six inside-50s to lead the way for his side.

North Albany’s Marley Williams was named in North Melbourne’s best players after impressing in their victory over Melbourne at the MCG on Sunday.

Williams has been in terrific form since switching from Collingwood. The rebounding defender collected 16 possessions, three tackles, five rebound 50s and kicked a goal in the 16-point win over the Demons.

Ex-North Albany key position player Jeremy McGovern had a quiet day in the West Coast Eagles’ disappointing loss to Essendon, with 13 touches and six marks as his side were belted by 61 points.

In the WAFL, former Denmark-Walpole junior Jesse Laurie responded well to being dropped to the reserves as he was a dominant force in Claremont’s win over West Perth. Laurie was in Claremont’s best players with 16 disposals and three marks, proving great drive off half-back.

Lake Grace’s Liam Baker was again in Subiaco’s best performers, collecting 21 possessions and six inside-50s to go with a goal in their 31-point league win over East Fremantle on Saturday.
