Fremantle teenager Nathan Fyfe has won the AFL's round nine Rising Star nomination.

Fyfe was selected for his outstanding performance in the Dockers' weekend win over Sydney at the SCG where he gathered 23 possessions, four clearances and five tackles.

The 18-year-old midfielder made his AFL debut in round five and has played five matches, averaging 14 possessions.

Fremantle coach Mark Harvey said Fyfe had adapted quickly to the speed and intensity of AFL.

"Some young players can pick up playing at an AFL level quite quickly and Nathan is one of them," he said.
