Game notes: This will be the Dockers’ final game at Domain Stadium before moving to new digs at Perth Stadium and they will surely get themselves up for a vastly-improved effort following last round’s horrible 104-point loss to Sydney. Freo was shockingly uncompetitive in the opening quarter and Ross Lyon suffered his biggest defeat as senior coach. The Dockers have lost nine of their past 11 and are limping home, but the long-awaited debut of injury-plagued star Harley Bennell could give them a lift. The Tigers were disappointing at Geelong last Saturday and could need to win their final two games to hold the rampant Swans or Port Adelaide from snatching their top-four spot. Richmond has a strong record in Perth recently, and will be searching for a fifth win from six visits. If it transpires, the midfield battle between raging Brownlow Medal favourite Dustin Martin and 2015 winner Nat Fyfe could be worth the price of admission alone.
