AFL Live Fremantle Dockers vs Collingwood Magpies Stream AFL Football 2015 Online, AFL Round 13 Match will be kick off at Domain Stadium, Perth, Victoria, Australia Sunday 25 June 2015 online, 8.10pm (AEST) and its broadcast on Channel Seven, Foxtell.
Thursday night football is back again and this week, it features two of the hottest teams in the league at the moment. The Dockers have had an incredible start to the season, losing only one game in the first half of the year as they come off of a bye last round. The Magpies meanwhile have defied pre-season expectations to be sitting pretty at fourth on the ladder, as they are also coming off of a bye.
While Fremantle’s season has been dominant up until now, they faced a stern challenge from the lowly Gold Coast Suns in their last outing two rounds ago, winning by just seven points. Nat Fyfe was his usual incredible self, racking up 31 touches to go along with two goals which ended up being a third of Fremantle’s total goals for the match. David Mundy and Cameron Sutcliffe also played significant roles in the midfield as they had 25 touches each. Despite the close score, the Dockers were dominant on the stats sheet, winning the contested ball, clearances and inside 50’s by a large margin. What was most impressive was their 70% disposal efficiency in the wet conditions, which played a large part in getting them over the line. Fremantle won’t want a repeat of their goal kicking woes however, as they kicked 17 behinds against the Suns.
The Pies meanwhile will aim to keep rolling on, as they are in the midst of a four game winning streak, most recently added to when they accounted for the Giants by 42 points two weeks ago. The heroes of this one for the Pies were their key forwards as, between them, Jesse White and Travis Cloke kicked eight goals. A small part of this can be attributed to the Giants key defending woes, as they lost both of their key back men, Joel Patfull and Phil Davis during the game. It was the former Giant, Taylor Adams who would come back to haunt his old club, as he gathered 36 touches, whilst also being supported in the midfield by Collingwood stalwarts Dane Swan and Scott Pendlebury who had 30 and 29 touches respectively. Collingwood’s clearance work and forward 50 pressure were keys to it’s victory, as the Pies won the clearance, contested possession and tackles inside 50 counts.
