Head to Head


Western Bulldogs have won the last three clashes in a row, including a 93-65 victory in the west last year.

In the last 10 meetings, Fremantle hold a 6-4 advantage.

Western Bulldogs Form


Western Bulldogs' finals hopes were hit last week as they lost 94-66 to ladder leaders Geelong Cats.

It means the Dogs are now 10th, a win outside the eight.

The Bulldogs had won their previous two games with wins over St Kilda and Melbourne Demons.

Western Bulldogs Team News


Youngster Sam Darcy has been named to make his Western Bulldogs debut.

Alex Keath and Adam Treloar also come back into the Dogs side. 

Ryan Gardner has a calf injury, and Buku Khamis, Robbie McComb and Mitch Hannan are all omitted.

Fremantle Dockers Form


The Dockers were given a lesson by reigning premiers Melbourne Demons last week in a 85-39 defeat at home.

It was a third straight game without a win for Fremantle, who lost at some to Sydney Swans and drew 52-52 with Richmond Tigers in Melbourne.

As a result, the Dockers have dropped to sixth on the ladder.
