Ryan Nyhuis Biography

Monday, 2 September 2019
Ryan Nyhuis and Scott Jones are delisted by Fremantle.

"We thank both Ryan and Scott for their efforts at Fremantle," Fremantle football manager Peter Bell said.

"Both were held in high regard at Fremantle and displayed excellent professionalism and commitment in their time as Fremantle Dockers."

Friday, 23 November 2018
Fremantle select Ryan Nyhuis with pick No.37 in the 2018 Rookie Draft.
Wednesday, 31 October 2018
Ethan Hughes, Michael Apeness and Ryan Nyhuis are delisted by Fremantle but will be re-drafted as rookies.

"At the start of the Trade Period, Fremantle held just one pick in the opening four rounds but we now hold a pick in the first four rounds, where we plan to utilise the picks to secure new, young players," Fremantle general manager of football Peter Bell said.

"As a result, we have had to make some list changes to make room for the players we are looking to bring in through the draft."

Ryan Nyhuis is handed a three-game ban by the AFL Tribunal for his dangerous tackle that concussed Port Adelaide star Robbie Gray.

Nyhuis pleaded guilty to the charge, completely accepting match review officer Michael Christian's grading of the incident as careless conduct with severe impact to the head.

"It was never my intention to hurt Robbie," Nyhuis said afterwards.

"I went and made sure I apologised to him post-game and I sincerely made sure he was OK."

Ryan Nyhuis is sent directly to the AFL Tribunal for his dangerous tackle that concussed Port Adelaide superstar Robbie Gray on Sunday.

Nyhuis dumped Gray in a tackle after the Power midfielder had been dispossessed of the ball and was propelled over the boundary line, slamming his head into the Optus Stadium turf.

Gray was forced from the field on a stretcher early in the third quarter, having been knocked unconscious as a result of the tackle, and took no further part in the match.

"The fact that he drove Gray into the ground in a vulnerable position with excessive force it's pretty conclusive that it did sit quite comfortably within the dangerous tackle guidelines," Match Review Officer Michael Christian said.

Sunday, 15 July 2018
Robbie Gray is stretchered off the ground after being knocked out following a dangerous tackle from Docker Ryan Nyhuis.

Gray gathered a loose ball on the half-forward flank and attempted to evade Nyhuis, who wrapped up his opponent and slung him head-first into the ground.

Gray didn't stir until minutes after medical staff had tended to him. His neck was eventually placed in a brace before he was lifted onto a stretcher and taken into the change rooms.

Sunday, 9 July 2017
Ryan Nyhuis makes his AFL debut for Fremantle at Docklands Stadium with 9 disposals (8 kicks and a handball), 5 marks, a tackle and 4 goals in a 4-point win over North Melbourne.
Ryan Nyhuis had never played in attack in his two seasons with Fremantle before his game-winning four-goal performance against North Melbourne at Etihad Stadium.

Recruited from the NT Thunder at pick No.34 in the 2015 NAB AFL Rookie Draft, Nyhuis had played as a half-back and occasional run-with midfielder before getting a late call-up to replace David Mundy (illness).

"He's invested so much in his footy, worked his way off the rookie list," Lyon said.

"He can play, and when you're invested you'll take any little scrap you can get. But he's dog hungry so he fought today."
