Lake Grace’s Nat Fyfe celebrated his 200th AFL game in winning fashion, as the Fremantle Dockers downed Hawthorn in Tasmania on Saturday.

Fyfe was presented with his jumper for the milestone by teammate Alex Pearce in front of his parents along with other family and friends before he led from the front in the Dockers’ big win.

The Dockers jumped to seventh spot on the ladder after their 16.12 (108) to 6.10 (46) win over the Hawks.

Fyfe, a dual Brownlow medallist, was the dominant performer in his 200th match as he finished with 31 disposals, five inside 50s and three clearances.

He capped off his big day with a final-term goal and high-flying mark before he was chaired off by Pearce and veteran David Mundy in front of the crowd at Launceston.

Meanwhile the best efforts of local duo Shai Bolton and Liam Baker were not enough for reigning premiers Richmond to snap their losing streak.

Katanning’s Bolton and Pingaring’s Baker were both named in the Tigers’ best for a second straight week but their side fell to their fourth straight loss and remain outside the top eight.

The Tigers went down to Collingwood by 17 points in round 14 on Sunday after leading by 20 points at the final change.

Bolton had 26 disposals, eight clearances, four marks, three tackles and kicked a goal. Baker kicked two goals from 19 touches, three marks, three tackles and three clearances.
