Australian Football League Live Fremantle Dockers vs Gold Coast Suns Live Stream Free, AFL 2017 Seasons Week 20 Stream. Fremantle Dockers vs Gold Coast Suns match will be kickoff at Domain Stadium, Perth, WA, Australia, Saturday 05 August 2017 online, 19:40 pm (AEDT) and its broadcast on Channel Seven, Foxtell.
The two sides sit in the lower reaches of the ladder with 14th placed Fremantle just clear of the Gold Coast, who are in 15th spot. The Dockers have won seven of their 18 games, one more win than the Suns, and head in as favourites on the back of the home ground advantage.
While both sides are out of the finals race, there is plenty of interest in the encounter and the consequences of another loss, particularly to the Suns, could be dire as their coach, Rodney Eade, tries to save his career.
This season, the Queensland outfit have produced another disappointing chapter in their brief history and have dropped their past four, including last weekend’s encounter by 33 points to Richmond. They are headed for another lowly finish to the season and will not surpass their best effort of finishing 12th in 2014.
After a promising stretch in the middle of the year, Fremantle have also begun to unravel and have lost eight of their past nine. Last weekend they were brave in defeat, going down to GWS by 12 points.
The Dockers have a slightly healthier list to choose from when compared to the Gold Coast and the likes of Nathan Fyfe, Lachie Neale and Stephen Hill should prove the difference against the injury ravaged Suns.
Look for the home side to win the contested possession count as well as the clearances and if they can use the ball a bit better than in some of their recent losses, they should be too strong.
Key players for the Suns include Tom Lynch, who booted three goals on Alex Rance last weekend, as well as Aaron Hall and Pearce Hanley, who both found plenty of the football in the same game.
Fremantle are likely to be without Connor Blakely, who dislocated his shoulder on two occasions last weekend, while Gold Coast may regain Gary Ablett. The club champion has missed the past two games with a hamstring injury.
