Game Chat – Fremantle v Port Adelaide

Written by Thommo on June 15 2019

Where and when: Optus Stadium, Saturday June 15, 2.35pm

What it means for Fremantle: The Dockers’ belief is growing after nailbiting wins over Brisbane and Collingwood before the bye, and taking care of business at home against a top-eight rival will boost their September chances.

What it means for Port Adelaide: Port has been frustratingly inconsistent all season and hasn’t won consecutive games since rounds five and six. Backing up their thumping win in Shanghai with a second victory in Perth for 2019 would give them some breathing space inside the eight.

The stat: The last six clashes between these sides have been won by the home team, with Port averaging 69-point victories in three games at Adelaide Oval and the Dockers averaging 11-point triumphs in their three home games.

The match-up: Nat Fyfe v Travis Boak

Former Power captain Boak has been in ripping form since switching back to midfield this season, climbing 31 spots to 49th overall in the Official AFL Player Ratings. If he can impact the game more than Fyfe (No.2 overall) it will go a long way to Port Adelaide clinching another win in the west.

It’s a big week for: Sean Darcy

He needs to prove his fitness first after an ankle issue but assuming Darcy is cleared to replace Rory Lobb (foot) in the ruck, the young Dockers ruckman needs to have an impact at stoppages and around the ground against Scott Lycett and Paddy Ryder in what would be his first game since round two.

Thommo’s Tip: Fremantle by 6 points.

    1. without wines & rocky he’ll have trouble finding possessions on the outside with limited feed ,
      he’ll have to play as a leading fwd & kick goals to score

  3. Fyfe, Ryan, Bewley, Boak and Duursma for me today. All looking good so far except Boak, low TOG. Should be right though.

    1. Just ticked over to 10. Should be able to make up that deficit over the next three quarters.

      Sorry Macpherson was a bust btw, Nato. Condolences.

      1. Macpherson just had a poor/unlucky game I feel as it was his lowest game on stats but still pulled out 75sc points due to very influential plays going to goals. Was on 44 at about halfway through the 2nd then disappeared. Only 4 disposals for the 2nd half. Can’t judge him on 1 bad game. See how he comes off the bye

      1. ah well , I’ve learned my lesson after trading in boak & mundy
        & kelly is on track to become the next stain in my pants
        not trading in any more high priced premos
        they just aren’t worth it

    1. Word to the wise, Wighty: Walters’ scores and form are subject to severe fluctuation.

      Looks really good rn, and I might bring him in myself, just have to be ready to accept the good with the bad. Has a low floor.

    1. Good. Should have been clocked on the spot, but I’ll settle for a hefty fine. Such toxic behavior, Fantasia handled it like a pro though.

      1. Really cowardly…he’s done it to Charlie Cameron too. Hardly picking on his own size and he knows they can’t fight back. He’d never had done it to plugger !!

        1. They should have a rule to give a one match suspension for unsportmen like behavior such as :
          repeated pinching
          repeated light punching (some other clown does that)

          1. Paul Roos tells a story how Plugger pulled out of cleaning him up when he filled the space in front of one of his leads and marked it. And Plugger simple said “Lucky I like you” and walked back to the goal square.

  7. Only way to stamp out the pinching (and other stupid things like that) is to make it a free-kickable offense and blow it (downfield if its off the ball)…. itll be out of the game quicksmart then

  9. … and on a similar note I’m loopholing Brewley vs Gibbons. Very decadent i know when people are copping multiple doughnuts. Thoughts? I’m thinking 75 is my target score. But Gibbons did ton up last week. Hmmmmm…..

    1. Was on mid 30’s midway through the 3rd but a contested mark and a goal assist to put them up late in the 3rd in conjunction with amassing roughly 8-10 touches in the last quarter helped him reach 90.
