Australian Football League Live Fremantle Dockers vs GWS Giants Stream AFL 2015 Seasons Week 18 math will be kick off at Domain Stadium, Perth, Western Australia, Australia, Sunday 02 August 2015 online, 16.40 pm (AEDT) and its broadcast on Channel Seven, Foxtell.
The GWS Giants have only ever played poorly in Perth and are unlikely to pull off their first win in the West against a Fremantle side that was only seconds away from losing to Richmond last weekend.
The big news is the Dockers will miss raging Brownlow medal favourite Nat Fyfe (thigh) and they will be without at least two members of their best 22 in Hayden Ballantyne and Michael Johnson. The Giants need Devon Smith, Rhys Palmer and Phil Davis to pass fitness tests whilst they will still be without key members Dylan Shiel and Shane Mumford.
The ladder leading Dockers are a game clear with 14 wins and two losses having stolen a win over Richmond last weekend. Freo is 9-0 (5-4 against the line) vs bottom-ten teams this year. The Giants were disappointing against Geelong having won two on the trot before that. Sitting in ninth on the ladder, just percentage out of the eight, they rank 8th in scoring and ninth on most points conceded this season. They are 2-4 (4-2 against the line) vs top eight teams in 2015.
Fremantle has thrashed GWS in their three games with wins of 95, 113 and 76 points respectively Both games have been at Patersons Stadium – with Freo having 110 scoring shots in the two games and GWS just 41. Under Ross Lyon, the Dockers are 39-8 (27-20 against the line) at Patersons Stadium – 19-3 (12-10 against the line) in the last two seasons. GWS is 6-13 (9-10 against the line) when on the road in 2014-15. The Giants are 0-5 (0-5 against the line) in Perth with an average losing margin of 96-points. All three of their matches have totalled above 168-points.
The Wolf is finishing off round 18 with the Dockers to do a number on GWS. Smarting after only just getting over the line against Richmond, the Dockers will see GWS as a good opportunity to get their groove back. In every trip over the Nullabor in their short history, the Giants have flat out stunk and we don’t expect them to be much better again today. They struggled against Geelong’s midfield last round and against Fremantle at home they won’t fare much better.
