Full Time at Fremantle Oval and the Dockers are home in relative ease. Fremantle 0.9.7 (61) defeat Melbourne 0.6.7 (43). Your typical preseason game with a lot of cobwebs throughout both sides. Pavlich was strong up forward kicking 3 first half goals along with Matt Taberner who also ended with 3 to his name.

Jesse Hogan was one of many exciting talents on the park for Melbourne and he stamped his name on the match with 11 disposals and a goal. Dom Tyson was a standout of the younger brigade with 21 disposals and 5 tackles. Chris Dawes also looked imposing at times in the Dees forward line.

Jeff Garlett settled in well at his new club. The former Blue couldn’t hit the scoreboard but 4 tackles is an important stat for the small forward.

Paul Duffield has an injury concern coming off in the last quarter with what looks like a serious injury.
