Show Preview

Fremantle can take second spot for their own and remain equal on points with ladder-leaders Melbourne when they face off against the fifth-placed Carlton in a Saturday afternoon blockbuster. Join The Roar for live scores and commentary from 1:45pm (AEST).

Off the back of two losses in three weeks and with inconsistency proving a concerning reality, Carlton face Fremantle in a superb Round 15 clash that could potentially have significant top eight and/or top four ramifications.

The Blues have succumbed to both Richmond and Collingwood across the last month, with a win against the Bombers wedged in between. Their form has looked solid without being sparkling and the Dockers’ challenge will probably demand something better, should they hope to claim the four points at Marvel today.

The Dockers have won their last three after losses to the Gold Coast and Collingwood threatened to derail their season, and Western Australia’s best team now has the platform from which to launch and secure a top four spot in the 2022 finals.

Victory here will go a long way towards securing that end of season position, with the Blues a team lurking near the same area of the top eight.

Team news sees Jack Martin and Sam Durdin miss for the Blues, yet a strong team otherwise named with Charlie Curnow and Harry McKay certain to be the key men in terms of producing a potential win for the men in navy.

Fremantle lose Blake Acres, Sam Switkowski and Michael Walters through injury, yet are boosted by the returns of Matthew Taberner and Michael Frederick for what looms as potentially the match of the weekend, after the Demons versus Lions match proved a walk in the park for Melbourne.

Prediction

As is the case across much of the Round 15 matches, picking a winner is proving a mighty challenging task. Carlton will no doubt use their bullish midfield, whilst Fremantle will look to rely on a structural method that has already surprised many teams in 2022.

It is a tough one to call, but the method might outwit the madness in this one and the Dockers could claw to a close-fought victory.

Fremantle by 5 points.
