Game notes: Fremantle is clinging to eighth spot after two straight losses and makes the longest trip in the competition to take on the battling Brisbane Lions. When the teams met 12 months ago, the Dockers won in a canter, and based on form across the first half of the season, should win comfortably again this time. But the Lions are rested following the bye, and Fremantle has lost successive matches to Adelaide and Collingwood to put the brakes on their promising season. The midfield match-up is intriguing with Nat Fyfe, Lachie Neale and Brad Hill up against Dayne Beams, Tom Rockliff and Dayne Zorko. That’s where both teams are strongest and where this match should be won. The Dockers are deserving favourites, but a Lions upset wouldn’t totally surprise.
Thommo’s Tip: Fremantle by 15 points.
