Venue: Domain Stadium, Saturday, April 22, 5.40pm AWST
Last Time They Met: R4, 2016, North Melbourne 20.12 (132) d Fremantle 14.17 (101) at Etihad Stadium
R21, 2015, North Melbourne 14.10 (94) d Fremantle 12.11 (83) at Etihad Stadium
R8, 2015, Fremantle 17.13 (115) d North Melbourne 5.12 (42) at Domain Stadium
Game notes: Fremantle’s stunning resurgence gathered momentum with a thrilling two-point win over Melbourne at the MCG and, as unthinkable as it was after two rounds, the Dockers are now out of the top eight only on percentage – although they have a large gap to make up. Ross Lyon’s men have been rejuvenated by an injection of youth, a sharp lift in pressure and some outstanding form from their senior campaigners, including former skipper David Mundy and Lachie Neale in new roles spending more time in attack. The Kangaroos will be steaming after letting another golden opportunity slip against the Bulldogs on Good Friday, and will have to defy a poor record of five losses from their last six games at Domain Stadium against Fremantle to notch their first win this season.
