The Dockers took a relatively settled squad into their three JLT Community Series matches but small forward Hayden Ballantyne's hamstring injury has opened up at least one spot for Sunday's clash with Geelong.
Hayden Crozier, who had 26 disposals and booted a goal for Peel on Saturday night, looks a readymade replacement.
Tommy Sheridan picked up 24 touches for the Thunder in a lively display across half-back and on a wing to also keep his name in the selection frame.
Draftee ruckman Sean Darcy (13 touches, 22 hit-outs) is behind Jonathon Griffin in the pecking order but did his growing reputation no harm up against Jonathan Giles, while yet-to-debut Harley Balic (30 disposals), Ethan Hughes (23) and tall defender Sam Collins were also very good in Peel's triumph.
Freo should have at least four new faces with recruits Bradley Hill, Cam McCarthy, Joel Hamling and Shane Kersten set to make club debuts against the Cats.
