Fresh off their first win of the season, the Fremantle Dockers will look to make it two on the bounce against the St Kilda Saints at Metricon Stadium. Join The Roar for live scores from 12:35pm (AEST).
Freo had been competitive for the first four rounds, but fell short at the final hurdle in all four matches. Last week, however, they broke their duck with a handy win over fellow cellar-dwellers Adelaide. With their time in a Queensland hub coming to a close, an upset win over a high-flying opponent could be the catalyst for a good two months at home.
St Kilda, on the other hand, have been a pleasant surprise so far in 2020. They’ve won three of four since the season resumed – including the big scalps of the Western Bulldogs and Richmond – and are playing a superb brand of football under Brett Ratten. They haven’t won away from Marvel Stadium, however – their poor interstate record needs conquering.
Last year’s two meetings between these sides were thrillers, with the Dockers winning by five points in Perth and the Saints prevailing by three at Docklands. These sides have split their previous ten meetings at five wins apiece. They have nearly identical records at the redeveloped Carrara Stadium too; 4-3 for St Kilda and 4-4 for Fremantle.
