GAME DAY: Giants Demolish Dockers

The Giants have answered back from their one-point loss last week to demolish the Dockers by 92-points at Spotless Stadium on Saturday. 

Fremantle showed promise for the first half of the game, but were left goalless for the second half while the Giants stayed in charge of the ball movement to run out  to 19.15 (129) to 5.7 (37) winners. 

Shane Yarran had an outstanding start kicking three goals, Lachie Neale was a stand out with 20 disposals in the first half and Sam Collins was keeping Jonathon Patton under wraps in the first quarter. 
 

But it was a different story in the second half with only one behind kicked in the third quarter and Michael Walters had a shot on goal in the fourth quarter but hit the post. 

Meanwhile, Patton was left to run circles around the Dockers for his six goals from midway through the second quarter. Ryan Griffen clocked up 30 disposals, but Fremantle’s Lachie Neale finished up with 40 touches.
