GAME DAY: Freo continue bad start

Fremantle continue their losing start to the season with a heartbreaking 31-point loss to North Melbourne at Etihad Stadium on Sunday afternoon. 

The reigning minor premiers now have four losses and zero wins despite winning two quarters of the game against the Kangaroos and forcing a see-sawing contest, but North took control of the fourth quarter to run out winners, 20.12 (132) to 14.17 (101). 

The Kangaroos started the game with a couple of quick majors as the Dockers defence struggled to stand up, but Lachie Neale gave the visitors the lift they needed in the second quarter. 
 

 

 

Neale continued in fine form with 35 disposals, Michael Walters worked hard for his two goals and Lachie Weller also showed good signs. But North Melbourne were too good with Jarrad Waite kicking four goals, Jack Ziebell was also influential with 26 disposals and three goals and Daniel Wells added to their best with 25 touches.

Lee Spurr speaks with our commentary team after Fremantle’s loss: 
‘I think we really compete, it’s just those skill errors.’

‘We thought we made some in roads tonight, we had some real moments. An incredibly poor start, we got slaughtered out the middle again.’ Listen to Ross Lyon’s post game press conference here…
