Stephen O’Reilly was a Fremantle stalwart in the club’s tough early days, playing 98 matches mostly under siege in the defensive goal square, amid a career that started at Swan Districts, detoured to Geelong and ended at Carlton.

He has been a Fremantle director since 2009, giving him 14 years of direct involvement at the club.

Yet under the AFL rules, Dillon O’Reilly is ineligible as a father-son selection because Stephen fell two matches short of the 100-match cut off.
