Head to Head


Fremantle hold the recent head to head lead 3-1, including taking out their last two clashes.

The Dockers won the last meeting by 34 points in April this year.

GWS Giants Form


It has been a poor season from the Giants, and they are just here to take some confidence into next season.

Five defeats in the last six matches mean they have nothing to play for ahead of this final game of the season.

Although they were competitive with the Bulldogs last week, the Giants were still beaten as they lost 62-57.

GWS Giants Team News


Tim Taranto and James Peatling both return from injury, replacing the injured Lachlan Keeffe and Tanner Bruhn.

Fremantle Dockers Form


Currently sixth on the ladder, the Dockers need a few cards to fall their way if they are to finish in the top four.

They have beaten Western Bulldogs and West Coast Eagles in the last two weeks and can give themselves a chance of the top four with a strong win here.

Rory Lobb has re-aggrevated an existing shoulder injury and is out.

Nat Fyfe has come through training this week and makes his return, while Lloyd Meek also comes back in for the Dockers.

Verdict

Fremantle at -15.5 looks an attractive line price, so I'm backing them with the handicap and also taking Lachie Schultz to kick a couple of goals.
