Another big loss for Freo

Fremantle fare-welled Domain Stadium on a low note with their second 104-point loss in a row, this time to the Richmond Tigers, and the result could put the Tigers in the top four to finish the season, 7.9 (51) to 25.5 (155).

The Dockers had plenty to celebrate with Hayden Ballantyne playing his 150th game and Harley Bennell pulling on the boots for the first time for Fremantle after 722 days away from AFL.

Bennell came out firing with two goals in the first quarter. But there weren’t many more highlights in the game with only one behind scored in the second quarter and they struggled beyond that.

Hear how the game played out here…

“It was definitely a plan to get up and going and try and run Freo off their legs and just play our way; the boys played well,” Shaun Grigg told us after the game.

“We’re not taking the risk and not taking the game on,” Hayden Ballantyne told us after the game.

“You’ve just got to take your chances when they present; we probably did and Freo probably didn’t capitalise enough early when they had the dominance,” Richmond coach Damian Hardwick said after the win.

“We’re really disappointed after a positive opening,” Ross Lyon said after their big loss.

Ben Rutten says Richmond are unsure what to expect from Fremantle bringing in Harley Bennell but not going to be complacent with him making his return.
“He probably only needs it a dozen times and he can really do some damage on the scoreboard.”

Michael Prior told our commentary team Fremantle have “a strong focus on team defense” after a game of turnovers last week.
