  • Fremantle Dockers have won 1 of their last 3 matches. 
  • Brisbane Lions have won the last 2 matches against Fremantle Dockers.
  • Brisbane Lions have won 1 of their last 3 matches. 

Head to Head 


Since 2019, the Lions hold a 2-1 advantage. The Dockers won Round 10 in 2019 by a point but have lost the last two, including a 95-71 defeat in Brisbane in Round 8.

Fremantle Dockers Form


Justin Longmuir’s Fremantle side's form is in and out if their previous five games is anything to go by. 

The Dockers have only two of their previous five games and, leading into their Round 20 clash with Richmond Tigers, were coming off back-to-back defeats.

But the Dockers pulled off a four-point win over the Tigers as they edged their way into finals contention and into the top eight. 

Fremantle Dockers Team News 


Fremantle will be without forward Bailey Banfield as he suffered a concussion in the win over the Tigers and will likely miss next week too. 

The Dockers do welcome back defender Alex Pearce, who has recovered from concussion.

Brisbane Lions Form

 
Brisbane have been stumbling at the business end of the season, also winning two games of their previous five games. 

The Lions currently sit in sixth spot - two places ahead of their opponents on Sunday. But they are still well placed, 12 points ahead of the Dockers. 

Coach Chris Fagan will want to rebound quickly from their shock loss to the Hawthorn Hawks last week which saw them go down by 12 points. 

Brisbane Lions Team News 


Brisbane came out of the Hawks defeat with no new injury concerns. 

But the Lions will be without Lachie Neale after the Brownlow Medal winner was ruled out with illness. 

Jaxon Prior and Ryan Mathieson come into the Lions 22.
