Preview

Melbourne’s goal kicking woes potentially cost them the four points against the Cats last week and they will be looking to bounce back to their winnings ways but will have to do so without superstar ruckman, Max Gawn, who will miss three months with a hamstring injury.

Meanwhile, Fremantle will head east full of confidence after defeating the reigning premiers and will look to build on that with their new-look side. Nat Fyfe was at his brilliant best and well supported by the Hill Brothers and David Mundy in midfield.

Jack Watts showed plenty in the ruck last weekend and will get the aid of Jake Spencer and if they can find the big sticks, it should be a comfortable win for the Dees.

Demons by 31.
