Game notes: This looms as one of the more intriguing games of the weekend. A few weeks ago Adelaide seemed to be the best team going around by a reasonable margin before losses to North Melbourne and Melbourne brought them back to earth. An 80-point win against the Brisbane Lions last Saturday indicated a return to form, but Fremantle should pose a bigger threat. The Dockers have won six of their last seven but have a percentage of 90.7, staggeringly low for a team in fifth spot. There’s no denying some of the quality Ross Lyon has at his disposal though. Nat Fyfe, Lachie Neale and Bradley and Stephen Hill help form a threatening midfield, while Michael Walters is running through there with great success. However, the Crows are the No.1 side in the AFL for contested possessions, with Rory Sloane and Matt and Brad Crouch all in the top 22 in the competition for that stat.
