Game Chat – Fremantle v Brisbane

Written by Father Dougal on July 1 2018

WHERE AND WHEN: Optus Stadium, Sunday July 1, 2.40pm AWST


Fremantle will chase a third win in a row when it meets Brisbane on Sunday. The Dockers produced their best hour of the season when they blew out the Blues a fortnight ago, kicking 12 unanswered goals in the first half. Fremantle’s youngsters, led by Brennan Cox, Adam Cerra and Andrew Brayshaw, again gave a glimpse of their immense potential in the victory. They’ll now hope they won’t have any lingering cobwebs coming back from the bye. The Lions suffered their 12th loss in 13 games, with a horrific head injury to Harris Andrews taking the shine off what was otherwise a competitive effort against the Giants. It was Luke Hodge’s best game in a Brisbane jumper, with the former Hawthorn premiership-winning captain collecting 30 disposals and providing plenty of leadership down back.

R12, 2016: Fremantle 23.9 (147) d Brisbane 9.10 (64) at the Gabba
R14, 2015: Fremantle 13.6 (84) d Brisbane 7.6 (48) at Subiaco
R22, 2014: Fremantle 15.16 (106) d Brisbane 6.12 (48) at the Gabba
R14, 2014: Fremantle 15.15 (105) d Brisbane 3.4 (22) at Subiaco

Father Dougal’s Tip: The Lions may lift and shock, but I wouldn’t bet on them! Dockers by 10

  1. VERY LATE CHANGE: Sandilands (calf) replaced by Ryan Nyhuis.

    Apeness playing first-ruck for Fremantle – great news for Martin owners.


  2. And it turns out that having Ahern as captain is not the worst thing that could happen to you this week.

    For anyone here who hasn’t been playing for long, *this* is precisely the type of second-half-of-year carnage that everyone has been warning you about.


    1. Whilst assessing implications of swapping c i missed lockout by about 30 seconds. Never mind , thousands of others have had their season rooted, we are not alone in despising this game for 10 minutes, then starting to plan for next week.


      1. The amount of bloody premo mids I need to swap out weekly is a nightmare.

        I think Stef Martin has gotten me over the line here in my league game, he had Gawn C and I changed it to Fyfe last minute because I thought I was rooted if I didn’t risk it on a different C choice!


    2. I went the other way . I had the C on Gawn, sneeked in Fyfe at 3pm because he was at 117 at 3Qtr hoping Fyfe would beat that…My season is done here..


    1. I’ve just realised that in addition to Brisbane, we (Carlton) still have Gold Coast and St. Kilda yet to come. There may be hope yet!
