Game Chat – Fremantle vs Western Bulldogs

Written by Huttabito on April 21 2018

In what was a dark year for Fremantle, Shane was a shining light at the end of the tunnel as the season drew to a close and lifted us supporters hopes for the next year. Please find help if you need it – Lifeline (13 11 14), Beyond Blue (1300 224 636) or Kids Helpline (1800 55 1800) are there to help.

WHERE AND WHEN: Optus Stadium, Saturday, April 21, 6.10pm AWST

SUMMARY
The Dockers made Greater Western Sydney earn a 31-point win in blustery conditions at Canberra last Saturday and return to Perth aiming to extend their unbeaten run at Optus Stadium to three games against an improving Western Bulldogs line-up. Fremantle has looked a much more potent team at its new home compared to on the road, averaging 101 points in Perth and only 55.5 in two away losses. There is a watch on Fremantle ruckman Aaron Sandilands after the club wanted to rest him against the Giants, and Lloyd Meek or Scott Jones might come into the mix for a debut against beanpole Tim English. The Dogs were rudderless in the opening two rounds but have rediscovered some intensity and defensive workrate, and will be kicking themselves for blowing a lead against Sydney. It looms as a tough task against Freo and they will rely heavily on prime movers Jack Macrae, Marcus Bontempelli and Luke Dahlhaus to match it with the Dockers’ powerful engine room.

  2. Don’t think I’ll take Coniglio’s 116 so need to decide on who to captain. Have dusty Mitchell and Fyfe as options but don’t wanna rely on titch with the Jacobs tag. Thoughts?

    TU- Fyfe
    TD- Dusty

    1. No one escapes the Banfield tag! I traded Macrae in RDT. Was him or Gibbs and wanted a POD to crack the top 100 and since Gibbs is on 22% of teams I went him. Looks like both were just as bad picks this week!

  5. Geez, SuperCoach is a lot like poker, you’ve gotta win your coin flips, and I just keep going the wrong option! Went Dusty over Fyfe for skipper *face palm*

  7. First time in 3 weeks got the C right , had Buddy as VC so pretty stressful until Fyfe started to fire. Thank you Nathan.

  8. Surely Walters deserved more than 100! 5 goals, 5 marks, 18 touches and 3 frees for? Was his disposal efficiency down or something?

  9. damn McLean with 109 in DT but only 72 in SC

    Really felt like he and Walters should have combined for a bit more for me, oh well.

  10. Bont to Danger for me this week. He’s lost his SC relevance with Bevo him playing all over the ground. I’ve seen him play Fwd, Ruck, Mid and now Def in the first few rounds.

    1. You do realise that there are no positions in AFL these days? Eddie Betts would be equally as efficient as a ruckman, Mason Cox could play wing and Tipungwuti could play as a high flying intercepting defender
