Dockers Dominate Dogs

Fremantle keep their perfect record at Optus Stadium claiming a dominant 54-point win over the Western Bulldogs in the Len Hall Tribute Match on Saturday night.

The Bulldogs had a late surge doubling their goals in the final quarter, but Fremantle were too far ahead and recorded the 16.12 (108) to 8.6 (54) win.

Nat Fyfe was outstanding with his 43 disposals while Michael Walters kicked an impressive five goals.

Both sides lost a player early to injuries, Matt Taberner (foot) and Tory Dickson (hamstring) did not play in second half of the game.

The Dockers made two changes resting Michael Johnson and giving Tommy Sheridan the boot; they bring in their fifth debutant for the season, Taylin Duman who clocked up 15 disposals.

 

Hear how the game played out…

“To be able to out there and enjoy wins like that with them (other young players), it just makes it even more special,” Adam Cerra told us after Freo’s win.

“It’ll be a good learning curve for us. We’ll watch the tape and try and get better,” Jason Johanissen told us after the Bulldog’s loss.

“Looks like (Matt) Taberner has a fractured metatarsal (foot),” Fremantle coach Ross Lyon said after the game.

“Sometimes with younger players its the path of the course and that’s going to take a while to work itself out,” Luke Beveridge told the media.

“You’ve got to be on your toes with them,” Bulldogs Assistant Coach Joel Corey said about Fremantle before the game.

Simon Eastaugh told 6PR the Bulldogs have a lot of dangerous players.
