Former St Kilda coach Scott Watters believes that Fremantle could go winless after five rounds up the competition's restart. 

The former Fremantle player, who played 109 games for the club, as well as plying his trade at West Coast and Sydney, believes that his former team is up against it when they start round two.

The Dockers suffered a six-point loss to Essendon in Round 1, and are set to face Adelaide, Gold Coast and Port Adelaide all at Metricon Stadium before heading to Brisbane to take on the Lions at the Gabba. 

“Out of all of the teams, (Fremantle coach) Justin Longmuir has got a very tough start to his coaching career,” Watters said on Footy SA & WA.

“They could be zero (wins) and five (losses), there is probably one game in there against Gold Coast where it’s a flip of the coin.

“It could be a pretty tough start for Fremantle.”

Watters believes that his other former side the West Coast Eagles are in a position to really assert themselves once the AFL resumes. 

“West Coast could jump out of the blocks and win four out of their first five (matches),”
