Ellyse Perry has sparked rumours she's dating AFL star Nat Fyfe after she was spotted in the Fremantle Dockers rooms last Saturday.

The cricket superstar could be seen in the background as the Dockers celebrated their 62-point win over Hawthorn in Fyfe's 200th game.

Tellingly, Perry appeared to be standing with Fyfe's family and friends after they were invited into the sheds to celebrate his milestone.

According to the Herald Sun, Perry and Fyfe have been good friends for some time, with Perry the only woman that Fyfe follows on Instagram.

Social media sleuths have also pointed to a video of Fyfe from last year that seems to corroborate the story.

“Other than your partner, who would you take to the Brownlow?” Fyfe is asked in the video.

To which he responds: “Ellyse Perry, can I say that?”

Fyfe played a starring role in his milestone match, picking up 13 disposals in the first quarter before finishing with 31 for the game.

The Fremantle captain added his name to the score sheet early in the fourth quarter amid a run of six-straight Fremantle goals.

"I was wrapped for the way he performed and the way we performed in a big milestone," Fremantle coach Justin Longmuir said.

"He was really strong from the start. 

"We tried to put him forward in the last quarter and he kept on finding contests to be involved in. He enjoyed himself out there."

Ellyse Perry and Matt Toomua sell marital home

Perry was married to Wallabies player Matt Toomua for five years before they announced their divorce in 2020.

“It’s with the greatest of respect for one another that we decided to separate earlier this year,” the pair said in a joint statement.

“We felt this was the right course of action and is in the best interests of each other and our current lives. 

"This is something that has evolved and is a mutual decision.

“Throughout our relationship we have remained private and we ask that our space and privacy continue to be respected during this difficult time for both of us.”

Last month the pair sold their marital home in Sydney for $2.7 million after buying it for $1.7 million in 2014.
