Venue: Domain Stadium, Saturday, April 8, 5.40pm AEST
Last Time They Met: R23, 2016, Fremantle 10.9 (69) d Western Bulldogs 6.13 (49) at Domain Stadium
Game notes: Ross Lyon has promised heads will roll following Fremantle’s uncompetitive and embarrassing 89-point defeat to Port Adelaide in round two. Dockers fans are clamouring for an injection of youth into an ageing line-up in response to a 0-2 start marred by shocking turnovers from defence and stagnant ball movement, which sees Freo anchored to last spot as the lowest scoring side in the competition. It doesn’t get any easier for the Dockers, who are coming off a six-day break against the reigning premiers. The Bulldogs are sitting pretty at 2-0 after hard-earned victories over Collingwood and the Swans in a rematch of last year’s Grand Final. Luke Beveridge’s men haven’t beaten Freo in Perth since 2009, but Domain Stadium will hold no fears after their stunning elimination final triumph over West Coast last year triggered a fairytale run to the premiership.
Father Dougal’s Tip: Bulldogs by 48
