Fyfe needs to join main group on Thursday

Dockers skipper Nat Fyfe must join the main group in training on Thursday if he's a chance to return from a hamstring injury against the Saints on Saturday.

Fremantle Head of Development Simon Eastaugh told #SportsLine it will come down to when he can manage to join the main group.

"As of today he's still in our rehab group so we need to give him those opportunities to hit those KPI's in rehab and if he's progressing along we'll see him in main training." Eastaugh said.

"It will determined later in the week we'll train on Thursday."

Ruckman Sean Darcy played his first game back after missing the previous match up against the Suns with a knee injury. Eastaugh hopes that he alongside Rory Lobb will give opposition teams some hard work in the future.

"Sean has had some ups and downs in the early part of his career.

"He's shown he can compete with the likes of Gawn and Grundy and Goldstein for him to front up and play the way that he did against the Crows was really encouraging from what was a disappointing game against Brisbane when he was injured.

"Sean is certainly making progress, it's now about accumulating more footy around the ground and I thought he did that well yesterday."

Another tall could put their hand firmly up for selection against the Saints, Lloyd Meek impressing in the clubs practise match hit out against the Crows.

"I think he's made a significant step yesterday. He needs to continue to put those sort of performances end on end. I think that's one of the benefits from being up here on the Gold Coast with these match simulations that it gives our players some really good competition, it's been a real bonus having these games while we have been up here."
