  • The Giants and the Dockers meet in AFL Round 5. 
  • Here is our preview of the Saturday afternoon clash

The GWS Giants and the Fremantle Dockers feature in one of three AFL games on Easter Saturday. 

The Spotless Stadium clash gets underway at 1.45PM AEST and all the action can be seen live on Fox Sports. 

Match Preview


GWS are among six sides that have won three of their four games this season and sit in 2nd position on the ladder, just behind Geelong on percentage. 

Last weekend they defeated that side in Geelong by four points. Lachie Whitfield and Stephen Coniglio continued their excellent early season form, while Jeremy Cameron chimed in with another three goals. 

Fremantle have won two of four and were competitive against last year's premiers, West Coast, last weekend, going down by 13 points. Only an inaccurate display prevented them from finishing closer to their local rivals. 

Nathan Fyfe and Michael Walters loom as key players for the Dockers, who have the tightest defence of any side this season, conceding an average of just 64 points per game. 

Selection News


Callan Ward is gone for the season for GWS after the star midfielder injured his ACL in the early stages of last week's game against Geelong. Toby Greene is set to return for the Giants. 

Fremantle are set to regain their captain, Nathan Fyfe, but Joel Hamling is the latest to go down with a concussion and he will be monitored at training. 

Match Odds


GWS Giants $1.13 
Fremantle $5.40

Stats


Fremantle won the first four games between the two sides after GWS entered the league in 2012, but the Giants have responded by taking out the past four.

Last year, the expansion club were 31 point winners at Manuka Oval and in 2017, the Giants held on by 12 at Spotless Stadium. Since the start of 2018, GWS have won seven of 10 at the venue. 

Prediction and Tips


This will be closer than a lot of people are predicting and Fremantle loom as the value with the 34.5 point start.
