Third year Fremantle Docker Connor Blakley (pictured) says he’s confident then club has the talent to cover for the loss of 27 year old forward Shane Yarran.

The club announced this week that Yarran had made the decision to retire from the AFL as he continues to deal with personal issues away from the footy club.

Blakely says while it won’t be an easy task to replace a player of Yarrans talent, he’s confident that the Dockers have the firepower in the forward line to make up for Yarrans absence.
