Fremantle vs St Kilda Preview and Prediction

Both sides face each other on Saturday afternoon after two impressive wins on the weekend against Carlton and Adelaide.

A promising sign for Fremantle was their disposal efficiency going at a season-high 80%.

The Dockers will be looking to improve on their efficiency inside 50, only managing 32.6% against the Crows.

Andrew Brayshaw stepped up for the Dockers last week finishing the match with 23 disposals, 10 contested possessions and six intercepts.

Meanwhile, St Kilda was consistent throughout their Round 5 win over Carlton, but on the other hand, Dan Hannebery suffered a hamstring injury which will see him miss up to three weeks.

The Saints will look to limit the influence of Nat Fyfe and Michael Walters, who have had career-best games against the Saints. You’ll most likely see jack Steele and Jarryn Geary head to them on Saturday.

Steele was best on the ground for the Saints, minimising the impact that Patrick Cripps had on the game, Steele finished the game with 23 disposals and nine tackles.

Although Fremantle sees the inclusion of Fyfe, I still believe St Kilda’s pressure will get them over the line.
