Fremantle Dockers hosts the Western Bulldogs in Cairns on Sunday with the Dogs seeking the win that will wrap up a finals spot.

Fremantle Dockers Form


Fremantle have won their last two matches against Melbourne and North Melbourne quite comfortably.

The Dockers arguably should be in contention for Finals had they not controversially lost to Carlton after the siren.

Although they are not in the Finals race, they will be looking at the prospect of that for next season, with some young guns on their list.

Western Bulldogs Form


The Bulldogs are in the hunt for the flag having won four of their last five matches, but still need to win this match to secure a finals spot.

If they are to get there, the Bulldogs can very well cause some damage to some good sides and possibly repeat their efforts of the 2016 premiership season.

Young star Bailey Smith has big match player written all over him, so expect him to feature prominently in this crucial game. Marcus Bontempelli is a star and we can expect him to be the focus of this match.

Fremantle Dockers vs Western Bulldogs Match Up

The key match up here could be between Josh Bruce and Luke Ryan.

You could say Bruce has not had the greatest of seasons for the Dogs, but if they are real contenders for the flag, he is the player that needs to show his value to the side.

Ryan is another lock for the All Australian side, a brilliant intercept mark and user with the ball.

He is the man that can keep Fremantle in this match by giving the Dogs just the one tall forward to kick to.
