Preview

The final game of the round sees Geelong make the trip to Domain Stadium to play Fremantle. The Cats have made some key inclusions for 2017, with Zac Tuohy likely to make an immediate impact. The Dockers have done the same as the inclusion of Cam McCarthy should help cover the retirement of Matthew Pavlich, while the return of Nat Fyfe will bring smiles to the Freo faithful.

The Cats were one of the highest scoring sides last year, while Ross Lyon teams are known for their stingy defence. These two opposing styles of play should lead to an entertaining and enticing battle. The potential match-up of Fyfe and Dangerfield is mouthwatering for the supporter of any side around the league.

Based on last year, you have to stick with the Cats in this one. However some off-season changes and returns mean it should be a much tighter affair than their 2016 form suggests.

Tip: Cats by 21
