Game Chat – Fremantle v Carlton

Written by Father Dougal on August 12 2018

WHERE AND WHEN: Optus Stadium, Sunday, August 12, 2.40pm AWST

SUMMARY
For the neutral observer, there isn’t much to recommend about this contest, but it will still mean plenty for Fremantle and Carlton. The Dockers were seething after a spiteful Western Derby and need to refocus ahead of a match they should win comfortably at home, with the chance to equal last year’s eight victories. Freo could receive a boost with Harley Bennell (calf) hopeful of playing his first game since round 23 last season, while superstar skipper Nat Fyfe (hamstring) will also be pushing to return. The Blues were embarrassed by the Giants in a 105-point poleaxing last Sunday, when their injury-hit opponent had only 16 players on the field at times in the final quarter, and, after a woeful two-win season, rumblings of discontent will only grow louder if they can’t compete against the rebuilding Dockers. If Carlton wants to avoid a fifth wooden spoon since 2002, this is a must-win encounter.

  3. I’ve probably had too much expectation on Luke Ryan as a second year player. Disappointed with his last month but the guy will be a gun for years to come
