Fremantle Dockers had to stomach their fourth defeat in a row as they were hammered 105-76 by the Sydney Swans and another beckons here.

Head to Head


Fremantle secured a stunning 106-77 win over the Cats back in May to make it two in a row in this fixture. In their last 10, the Dockers have four wins, while the Cats have won six times. 

Geelong Cats Form 


Geelong's hopes of securing a place in the top eight on the ladder took a hit in their last game as they were beaten by the Brisbane Lions. 

While the Lions have excelled this year and currently sit in third on the ladder, Geelong would still have been disappointed with the 11-point loss. 

Their defeat leaves them in eighth spot on 38 points. While they are only four points short of the Western Bulldogs in fifth, they are just four points clear of the Sydney Swans in 12th, with the ladder incredibly congested right now.

Fremantle Dockers Form 


The Fremantle Dockers were not good enough in their last outing as they were comfortably beaten 105-76 by the Sydney Swans. 

This came in a home game that they will have felt was entirely winnable, and yet they were beaten for the fourth match in a row and for the sixth time in their last seven matches. 

While the Dockers are only 10 points behind Geelong in eighth, it would take something truly special for Fremantle to find a way to make the top eight after what has been a hugely disappointing season.

Both Sean Darcy and Nat Fyfe will miss the remainder of the season as the duo head for surgery.
