Fremantle Dockers vs Hawthorn Predictions

Hawthorn have started the season marginally better than Fremantle, but the fact the favourite has won 13 of the last 14 times between the two sides does not bode well for the Hawks.

Fremantle come back to their home ground off a poor loss to Carlton, but were very good here two games back. Hawthorn almost toppled Geelong on Easter Monday, but are on a two-game losing streak.

  • Both sides have 1-2 records from the opening 3 matches.
  • The favourite has won 13 of the last 14 clashes between the two sides.
  • Fremantle Dockers won their last match against Hawthorn, played at Optus Stadium.


Hawthorn hold the recent record of 6-1, but the most recent encounter went the way of the Dockers at Optus Stadium where they were victors by almost three goals.

Prior to this, Hawthorn had comfortably had comfortably had their measure in their previous six meetings.

Fremantle Dockers Form

It was a game of boys against men for Fremantle last week against Carlton, with the Dockers always on the back foot.

Their in-experienced line-up were just pushed around in the 109-64 loss and they are in desperate need of their skipper Nat Fyfe back in the side.

Carlton had been playing some good footy throughout the season, but this side Dockers were still expected to play better than they did.

Back to their home ground this week where they toyed with GWS Giants a fortnight ago, I do feel they are the deserved favourites heading into the game.

Fremantle Dockers Team News

Hayden Young will be out for an extended period of time with a big hamstring injury. Lachie Schultz is ruled out with concussion and a broken finger means Sam Switkowski is out.

But key man Nat Fyfe returns to the side after a concussion last week. He was sorely missed last weekend.

Tobe Watson, Josh Treacy and Sam Sturt are also recalled by the Dockers.

Hawthorn Form

The Hawks toughed it out against Essendon in Round 1, winning by a point after looking done for the day when they trailled by eight goals before half-time.

They were a rung below the Richmond Tigers in Round 2 after the reigning premiers got off to a quick start en route to a 78-49 win.

Hawthorn were just one goal away from victory against Geelong Cats last week as they went down 69-64 at the MCG on Easter Monday.

Hawthorn Team News

Jacob Koschitzke and Shaun Burgoyne drop down to the emergencies with Michael Hartley coming into the Hawks side.

We are still a little while away from seeing Jack Gunston back for the Hawks. Will Day will undergo ankle surgery and will miss a period of footy.

Changkuoth Jiath has been all the talk from the Hawthorn camp the last fortnight after putting together two big efforts off the half-back with his speed and skill. He again will be the player to watch as he generates their play.

HB: Jarman Impey, Blake Hardwick, Michael Hartley
