Game notes: What more could we ask for on a Sunday afternoon than last place versus second-last in a mano-a-mano fight to determine who will win their first game and crawl out of the cellar and who remain in the dark.
Despite the absence of Sandilands and Mundy, Fremantle showed definite signs of improvement against the Roos last week and will relish the return to Domain Stadium. Fyfe is looking like his old self and will enjoy not having the Simon White tag today after being shut down by him in their last clash.
The Blues are looking far improved on last year but they are still short of the class and experience to challenge most sides. Despite the inclusion of their enforcer, Liam Jones, it’s hard seeing a way they can defeat a Fremantle who will be desperate to notch their first victory.
Thommo’s tip: Fremantle by 36 points.
