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.

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