Fremantle vs North Melbourne Preview

The Dockers won their second match on the trot, with a two-goal triumph over the Crows.

Fremantle was able to frustrate the Crows attacking play, limiting them to 17 scoring shots, seven less than their own. Despite being 11 points down in the last term, an incredible David Mundy goal inspired them to claim the four points.

Matt Taberner ended up booting four goals against Adelaide, moving his season tally to 13. Justin Longmuir will look to isolate him deep inside 50 to make the most of his one-on-one talents against inexperienced Ben McKay.

Meanwhile, the Kangaroos are still yet to win a match this season, falling to another defeat against premiership contenders Geelong.

Despite getting dominated on the scoreboard, North Melbourne will be able to take positives out of their first-quarter performance. Their inexperience and injuries proved costly as they fell off after showing some positive signs.

Although the Kangaroos are the worst clearance team in the competition, Ben Cunnington has been superb this season. Against the Cats, he finished with seven of the Roos 26 clearances.

You can expect David Noble’s side to continue with their handball style approach to the match, starting from defensive 50 off the boot of Jack Ziebell, who has been moved into defence this season.

The Kangaroos have been extremely poor so far this season, and I can’t see them winning this one at Optus Stadium on Saturday night.

Dockers vs Kangaroos Team News

Fremantle will be forced to make one change, with Adam Cerra suffering an ankle injury against the Crows. Mitch Crowden is the likely inclusion 

North Melbourne will have two key inclusions, with Luke Davies-Uniacke and Cameron Zurhaar returning from injury.
