THE TEAM NEWS

FREMANTLE

  • Fremantle were unable to make it three wins in a row as they slipped to a poor defeat against West Coast Eagles and that result means they come into this clash with a 2-5 record for the season.
  • The Dockers struggled as they managed to post just 32 points and despite trailing by 15 points at the half, a very lacklustre second half where they scored just seven was an extremely disappointing performance.
  • The Dockers have opted to make two changes to their side this week with Stephen Hill out injured while Travis Colyer is dropped so Brandon Matera and Reece Conca come into the line-up.

GEELONG CATS

  • Geelong Cats were outplayed by Collingwood last week as they slipped to 4-3 and they will be eager to respond to that loss having won their last three matches before that defeat.
  • The Cats struggled against a solid defensive effort from the Magpies and having managed to notch just nine first half points, they were unable to get themselves back into the game in the second half as they went down 35-57.
  • There are huge changes for the Cats this week with Darcy Fort, Joel Selwood, Jordan Clark and Luke Dahlhaus injured while Gary Ablett and Jack Steven are managed with Brad Close, Charlie Constable, Lachie Fogarty, Lachie Henderson, Mitch Duncan and Tom Stewart called-up.

THE PREDICTION

Geelong Cats started the season in an inconsistent manner but they appeared to have turned the corner after winning three games in a row. They were unable to make it four as they lost to Collingwood last week but this clash with Fremantle presents them with a good opportunity to return to winning ways. The Dockers have won just twice so far this season and despite some big changes to the Cats’ side, Geelong should still be good enough to come out on top in this clash.
