Fremantle Dockers have found their form in the second half of this season and bid to continue that when they host GWS Giants at Optus Stadium on Saturday.

GWS are as inconsistent as they come, stringing together three wins in a row before dropping their last two matches, including a loss to Sydney. Freo have also won three of their last five but have been unlucky not to have a better return.

Fremantle Dockers Form


Freo have been playing super over these last couple of months, winning plenty of games at home. They could have been in a better situation still had Jack Newnes not kicked a winner after the siren when they lost to Carlton.

After flogging Sydney last week, the Dockers will take great confidence from that win knowing the Swans did manage to upstage the Giants just the week before.

GWS Giants Form


The Giants will either come out and play the brand of footy we know they can play, or simply struggle against a side who they should be beating. There seems to be inbetween with GWS.

Their form this season has been incredibly inconsistent and last year's beaten Grand Finalists are struggling to impact the score board heavily.

Coming into this match off the back of two losses, they cannot afford to make any mistakes early and let Freo off to a flying start, as they then tend to punish sides from that position.

Fremantle Dockers vs GWS Giants Match Up

They key match up heading into this match looks between Luke Ryan and Jeremy Cameron.

Cameron is of course GWS's key forward and Ryan is in All Australian form for the Dockers.

Cameron has a high work rate while Ryan is a great intercepter and very clean with ball in hand, so it will be interesting to see if he runs with Cameron or sticks to the half-back line.

If Ryan can shut down Cameron's influence, the Dockers will take a lot of stopping as they press forward with ball in hand.
