Australian Football League Fremantle Dockers vs Richmond Tigers Live Stream Free, AFL 2019 Round 08 Live Stream. Fremantle Dockers vs Richmond Tigers match will be kickoff at Optus Stadium, Burswood, Australia, Sunday 12 May 2019 online,Time: 5:20pm AEST and its broadcast on Channel Seven, Foxtell.
Fremantle enter Round 8 with four wins and three losses as they sit 5th on the AFL ladder. Richmond are in a position that they despise, sitting 9th on the ladder with the same win-loss record as the Dockers.
The Dockers come off a low-scoring loss in Adelaide where they kicked 5.4 (34) to the Crows’ 7.9 (51). Richmond also come off a loss where they were completely outplayed to the tune of 47 points.
Fremantle skipper Nat Fyfe continues to lead the way along with veteran David Mundy who is having a terrific season. Michael Walters is also having a strong season and the Tigers will need to shut him down. Their tall-timber will be decisive in this match-up.
Richmond aren’t getting as much out of Dustin Martin who isn’t racking up touches like he normally does. He had 25 against the Bulldogs which is a more positive sign and he will be looking to play well in the west. Tom Lynch has had to carry the forward line with 17 majors for the year; next best is Josh Caddy and Jack Higgins with six each. Bachar Houli will be a key player providing run off half-back.
No injury news for Fremantle with the team either remaining unchanged or looking to include Connor Blakely who had 31 disposals against East Perth in the WAFL. He hasn’t played for the Dockers since Round 13 last year.
Richmond have a big injury list that includes some of their best players. In addition to Trent Cotchin and Jack Riewoldt who will miss at least three and five weeks respectively, the Tigers are likely to be without Daniel Rioli and Nick Vlastuin. The latter will be a crucial out for the Tigers. David Astbury could return.
Richmond have a depleted team compared to the last time they met Fremantle, but they shouldn’t be taken lightly.
