Game Notes: Remember this game last year? Ross and Phil let the two superstars – Dangerfield & Fyfe – go head-to-head with one another and the result was an absolute battle for the ages. Fremantle got the chocolates that day but anyone with Dangers as captain for the round would have been dancing in the street. Sadly, for different reasons neither superstar will be out there today. Its hard to see Freo getting anywhere near the Crows on their home turf. Both teams lost last week but while Adelaide will take heart from their 3 point loss to the Hawks, the Dockers must be questioning pretty much everything right now. Look for Barlow to get a ton of it but not as much as he would’ve got if Mundy hadn’t returned.
The 6 Points
1. The Dockers defeated the Crows by 11 points in a wet, low-scoring contest in round nine, 2015 at Adelaide Oval. Fyfe had 40 disposals and former Crow Patrick Dangerfield had 38 touches.
2. Adelaide and Fremantle will play for the 35th time and the Crows still hold a narrow advantage, winning 19 games to 15.
3. Fremantle has now defeated Adelaide four times in a row; the Crows haven’t beaten the Dockers since the 2012 semi-final.
4. Heavily in Adelaide’s favour is their record against the Dockers in Adelaide, winning 14 games to six; all at AAMI Stadium.
5. Ross Lyon enjoys an impressive record against the Crows as coach, 10 wins from 15 games with both St Kilda and Fremantle.
6. Fyfe might be the League’s best player according to Schick AFL Player Ratings, but Rory Sloane will be the highest-ranked player at Adelaide Oval on Saturday night. He’s ranked sixth, four points behind fifth-placed Scott Pendlebury.
