Dockers v Power preview
Counter to their three straight wins prior, Fremantle were humbled by a Carlton side on the rise, 12.9.81 to 7.8 50 at Melbourne’s Marvel Stadium. The Dockers return to WA this Sunday where they meet a Port Adelaide side on the charge and looking for three straight wins.
It is almost unthinkable that Ken Hinkley’s men are a win outside the eight after starting the year so disastrously 0-5. But they are and have lost just two games since that streak.
As a bonus, several stars were expected back for Port Adelaide, including Orazio Fantasia, Zak Butters – pushing to return from a medial ligament sprain – and even ruckman Scott Lycett (shoulder) was a chance.
None of those three however will play on Sunday with Port Adelaide taking an extra cautious approach with Fantasia. Butters failed a fitness test and Lycett will return via the SANFL. However, Robbie Gray has been named on the interchange.
