THE TEAM NEWS

FREMANTLE

  • Fremantle made it back-to-back wins in the AFL and after losing their first four matches of the campaign, they will hope they have turned the corner but they face a tough task to make it three victories in a row.
  • The Dockers were able to overcome St. Kilda in a tight contest but they showed great character as they overcame a 36-point first quarter deficit and with the scores level late in the contest, Fremantle scored the decisive goal with little time left on the clock.
  • That win will give the Dockers a huge amount of confidence but they did suffer a couple of injury blows last week with Nat Fyfe and Hayden Young ruled out and that sees Brennan Cox come in along with debutant Michael Frederick.

WEST COAST EAGLES

  • West Coast Eagles won for the second game in succession as they produced a solid display to see off Adelaide last week and they will be eager to improve to 4-3 as they face Fremantle.
  • The Eagles started well and were able to come out on top in each of the opening three quarters of the contest as they ran out 67-34 winners in what proved to be a one-sided affair.
  • With another win behind them, the Eagles have made just a solitary change to their side this week and that sees Luke Shuey earn a call-up at the expense of the omitted Brayden Ainsworth.

THE PREDICTION

Both Fremantle and West Coast Eagles come into this contest with the pair each winning their last two matches. They will both be confident of success and the start could be all important, although the Dockers showed brilliant character to fight back from an awful opening quarter last week. They can ill-afford to produce that kind of performance again with the Eagles likely to be too good if that is the case and having won their last nine meetings, it is the Eagles that should come out on top by at least 14 points in this one.
