Game Chat – Brisbane vs Fremantle

Written by Thommo on June 10 2017

Venue: GABBA at 4:35pm AEST

LAST FIVE TIMES

R12, 2016, Fremantle 23.9 (147) d Brisbane Lions 9.10 (64) at the Gabba
R14, 2015, Fremantle 13.6 (84) d Brisbane Lions 7.6 (48) at Domain Stadium
R22, 2014, Fremantle 15.16 (106) d Brisbane Lions 6.12 (48) at the Gabba
R14, 2014, Fremantle 15.15 (105) d Brisbane Lions 3.4 (22) at Domain Stadium
R12, 2013, Fremantle 12.14 (86) d Brisbane Lions 6.10 (46) at Domain Stadium

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.

          1. I made a pretty big mistake this week. Im adjusting to new hours at work (used to be OFF for friday/sat night games…so was able to roster adjust as i was home and listening to the AFL radio games/sometimes finding a game on tv. For ex. I just finished the ol’ money makin’ routine and have come home to see the ESS vs PORT game is on tv in Canada tonight! Go Zerrett!)

            Anyways, wanted to bring in Lynch (GC) and missed the lockout. (Also wanted Roberton/Hibberd as the other options but was wayyy too hesitant to make a decision so early in the week while I had time.)

            Had Cousins on the bench as an M9 (17 on field…until i decided who Meyers would become…DEF premo or FWD premo?)

            Hawthorne played early and forgot to put the E on Cousins and I missed out on a Tom Lynch Tonne.

            I hit the panic button when I found a break at work and traded Meyers to Zorko.

            So after all that bozo-ness of mine, Zorko went nuts in the first half and nearly covered my ‘Emergency’ error.

            Hope he keeps going well!

            Also hope Rocky rediscovers his magical ways. Despite the score, was glad to see he made a successful, healthy return. Great news as a dude who held him through his injury.

            Overall, definitely hasnt gone to plan this week, but I haven’t necessarily damaged the squad.

            Thanks, Zorko for rescuing me from myself this week!

  3. I’m looking forward to seeing how well Beams and Rockliff share the points today.

    Stefan Martin might also have a decent game despite Archie Smith’s presence due to the relatively weak opposition.

    1. Just check to make sure he’s actually playing this time. It took you three quarters of running around looking for him before you realised he wasn’t playing last time around.

  6. Sloane Ranger V/C let me down.

    Can L Neale save me again?

    Watching your team ( down ) and your C ( 0k) playing is rather stressful.

    lucky I have Young Henry to help me out.

    Berry and Barrett looking good.

    Freo by 2 points.

  9. Would i be stupid on trading Fyfe next week to Bont after Fyfe has just seem to have lost the edge on Supercoach

    1. Held Roo, Rocky and Sandi. Traded Beams.

      He could still miss games, but looking like a bad call ATM.

      1. Never got out of second gear, just a lazy 27 touches. With his low BE this week, I think he was a reasonable target. I agree, he will get better.

        BUT it’s going to be really hard not to trade Fyfe this week. Cooked.

    1. Ryan played well, he’s got talent so he would be unlucky to get dropped. Have’nt looked closely to Scharenberg but brought him this week so hope he goes well. Hoping they will be good bench players.
