The first of two matches on Saturday 11 June is Fremantle and Hawthorn at Perth’s Optus Stadium. Here’s how to watch the match and catch up on all the news in the lead-up.

Dockers v Hawks preview

Nat Fyfe has been named to return for the Dockers after playing for Peel in the WAFL last weekend.

During the past two weeks, Fremantle has laid down the marker as a top four side with wins over reigning premiers Melbourne Demons, and fellow premiership contender, Brisbane Lions. Andrew Brayshaw was a standout with 39 disposals last Sunday against Brisbane.

Another win on Saturday would see them go to equal first with the Dees, albeit temporarily. Hawthorn’s top eight aspirations took a blow last Sunday at a wet MCG, beaten by Collingwood, and now travel West needing a win to stay in touch.

What time is Dockers v Hawks?

The game starts at 4.10pm (AEST), 2.10pm (AWST) and 3.40pm (ACST), on Saturday 11 June.

Where is it being played?

Optus Stadium, Perth.
