PEEL Thunder played all right on Saturday, according to coach Cameron Shepherd.

“It was a good opportunity for some of our players to play against South Fremantle and they’ll play them again this weekend,” he said.

“Everyone got through uninjured.”

Shepherd said the team were in a better position at this stage of the season than they were in 2016, when they won the WAFL premiership.

“We’ve secured 12 wins and a spot in the finals,” he said.

Shepherd said he would be telling his players to enjoy the experience of finals footy.

“And to put their best foot forward,” he said.
