Game notes: The Dockers have plenty to play for in Matthew Pavlich’s final game. It might be the end of an era at Fremantle given the uncertain future of a number of other Dockers. The Bulldogs will want to spoil the party given a home final is at stake for them. The Bulldogs have not won in Perth since 2010 and they will hardly get a better chance to end that drought given how poorly the Dockers have played this year. But a win is far from guaranteed, especially given the nature of the occasion. The Dockers look set to be bolstered by some experienced personnel for one of the rare times this season while the Bulldogs can’t take a trick with their own injury issues.

The 6 Points

1. The Bulldogs blew the Dockers away in the first half in round one, kicking nine goals to one. The Bulldogs dominated most of the important stats, 498-340 disposals, 116-98 marks and 57-30 inside 50s. Jake Stringer starred with five goals.

2. Fremantle is ranked last for inside 50s and marks inside 50 this season. At the other end the Dockers have conceded 98 points per game in 2016 compared to 71 in 2015.

3. The Bulldogs are lowest scoring side in the top eight, averaging only 86 points per game. They are ranked 10th overall for scoring. Fremantle is 16th for scoring.

4. This is the Dockers’ worst season at Domain Stadium since 2001. They’ve managed only two home wins this year. In 2001 they won just once. But the Bulldogs have lost their last six games at the venue.

5. The Bulldogs remain the highest ranked team for disposals per game with 413.1 while Fremantle has been a low disposal team, ranked 13th averaging 367 per game.

6. The Dockers have four players, Nat Fyfe (19), David Mundy (34), Michael Walters (38) and Lachie Neale (40) in the top 40 of the AFL Player Ratings. The Western Bulldogs have just two, Marcus Bontempelli (five) and Jake Stringer (30).

Thommo’s tip: Western Bulldogs by 24 points
