Australian Football League Geelong Cats vs Fremantle Dockers Live Stream Free, AFL 2018 Regular Seasons Week 22 AFL Live Stream. Geelong Cats vs Fremantle Dockers match will be kickoff at GMHBA Stadium, Geelong, VIC, Australia, Saturday 18 August 2018 online, 14:10 pm (AEDT) and its broadcast on Channel Seven, Foxtell.
Geelong won three from three at Simonds Stadium recently before making the journey over to Perth, where they dropped their Round 13 encounter to West Coast by 13 points.
Prior to that they defeated Adelaide, Port Adelaide and the Western Bulldogs at Simonds Stadium and they return to their fortress where they should be very hard to beat. CrownBet have posted them at the odds of $1.17 in the early head to head betting.
Fremantle enjoyed the bye last weekend and the break couldn’t have come at a better time for Ross Lyon’s side. After winning six games in a seven week stretch earlier on, the Dockers then dropped their three games before the break in fairly ordinary fashion.
Their most recent was a shocker and came against the bottom placed Brisbane Lions to the tune of 57 points. They have won six games for the year and sit in 11th position on the ladder, eight spots behind 3rd placed Geelong, who have registered eight wins.
The Sunday clash brings together the Brownlow Medalists from the last two years, Geelong’s Patrick Dangerfield and Fremantle’s Nathan Fyfe. Of that pair, Dangerfield is in the superior form and is favourite to go back to back this season.
The explosive midfielder is one of the key reasons why the Cats rank highly in a number of measures. They are 4th for average contested possessions and 5th for clearances, while the Dockers are 16th and 8th in these measures.
Look for Dangerfield and his partner in crime, Joel Selwood, to get on top in the middle of the ground, however, Fremantle may have an advantage in the ruck. Their monster ruckman, Aaron Sandilands, is leading the competition for hitouts and returns to the side this weekend.
The Dockers will need to rediscover the form that saw them win their games earlier on but at Simonds Stadium, the task would appear to be beyond them.
Geelong should come out all fired up after their loss to the Eagles and have plenty to play for, given the closeness of the 2017 season. A win will see them maintain their gap on a host of sides, while a loss will have them in the midst of the chasing pack.
Geelong lose Scott Selwood and Nakia Cockatoo to hamstring complaints but Tom Hawkins returns from suspension.
Fremantle may make a host of changes after their loss to Brisbane a fortnight ago. Shane Kersten comes off a poor performance, while Brady Grey will miss with a hamstring. Aaron Sandilands should be right to return, while Griffin Logue will be considered.
