Fremantle defender Lee Spurr admits he couldn't contain his excitement when he kicked his first career goal during their 95-point thrashing of Melbourne on Sunday.
It took the mature-age recruit 32 games to sneak one through the big sticks and his enthusiastic celebrations caught the attention of the commentators.
"During the week the boys gave me a bit of flak because I had a shot last week (against GWS) and I missed it," Spurr said today.
"Some of the boys were saying I would probably never kick one so I got a chance to kick one and I probably went a bit over the top, but I enjoyed it a lot.
"I told (captain Matthew Pavlich) Pav I was trying to pass it to him."
Spurr's breakthrough goal got less attention than North Melbourne's Nathan Grima, who managed it in his 72nd AFL outing.
"I actually played with Nathan Grima in the SANFL and I really enjoyed seeing him kick a goal," Spurr said.
"I wasn't really trying to think about it too much but the opportunity came up. I think all defenders like kicking a goal and turning the tables a bit but it is not really a major focus."
Spurr hit the track today for a light a session ahead of Saturday night's game against eighth-placed Port Adelaide at Patersons Stadium.
Injured trio Luke McPharlin (calf), Clancee Pearce (calf) and Garrick Ibbotson (Achilles) made brief appearances at the open training at Fremantle Oval but did little to show they might be closer to a return to the side.Hayden Ballantyne joined his teammates despite injuring his right shoulder against the Demons and did some jogging. But there was no sign of Aaron Sandilands, who got a heavy knock to his left cheekbone on Sunday.
