Where and When: Cazaly’s Stadium, Cairns. Monday 7 September at 7:10pm AEST.
Last time they met: Rd 14, 2019: Melbourne 13.7 (85) def Fremantle 11.5 (71) at MCG
Match Preview: As a Hawks’ supporter, the only thing making this season more bearable is knowing that I don’t barrack for Melbourne. They would have to be the most frustrating club of the past decade who mix good wins with stupid losses. Just look at last week’s loss to Sydney!
Well, here is a chance at redemption. The Fremantle Dockers have been competitive this season but they are obviously a young team learning their way and they don’t have the class of the Demons. This should be a simple win for Melbourne even though Fremantle is good enough to avoid a blow-out.
Over to you, Melbourne!
Supercoach Watch: Melbourne: Petracca, Oliver and Max Gawn should fly the flag for their SC teams with Brayshaw out this week.
Fremantle: Fyfe and Andrew Brayshaw are the most popular of the Freo players. Hopefully (for their sake) all SC squads have traded out Michael Walters as he seems to be playing mostly forward these days.
Thommo Watch: Thommo was not happy to see Brayshaw return to his minutes restriction last week. I know Freo won’t play finals but just let the kid play, Longmuir!
Thommo’s Tip: Melbourne by 30 points.
