It’s last chance territory for both of these sides as the Fremantle Dockers take on the GWS Giants in a season-defining clash at Optus Stadium. Join The Roar for live scores from 4:35pm (AEST).
Fremantle’s strong second half of the season continued last week with a thumping 31-point win over Sydney. The Dockers had always been desperately unlucky to start 0-4 and, while finals are out of the question, their run of three wins in four matches is just reward for what’s been a solid season.
The Giants are quickly running out of chances to get back into the top eight, having lost their second straight game last week to fall to 6-6. With a poor percentage, they’re going to need to rack up the wins and hope opponents above them trip up if they want to progress.
Freo claimed a shock upset win over GWS in last year’s meeting, a 24-point boilver in Canberra. The Dockers have won three of their last four home games, while the Giants are 0-4 all-time at Optus Stadium.
