Fremantle come into its clash with the Saints full of confidence after eight straight wins and now sit firmly planted inside the top two.
St. Kilda shouldn’t provide any real resistance to the Dockers juggernaut, and it would be a surprise if Alan Richardson’s men are still in the game by half time.
Ross Lyon’s Fremantle outfit continue to win despite the personnel issue they constantly face – a testament to their “anytime, anywhere” motto which has seen them turn around a poor start to the season to seemingly become Sydney’s biggest challengers.
The Dockers will be without key man Hayden Ballantyne through suspension, and it will be worth watching how Anthony Morabito is utilised after starting his past two games as a substitute.
The hapless Saints have now lost 11 in-a-row, and it surely looks like it’ll become number 12 on Saturday.
1. In the Saints’ thrashing of the Dockers the last time the sides met, Fremantle left out a number of stars to prepare for the finals, including Nat Fyfe, David Mundy, Hayden Ballantyne, Stephen Hill, Luke McPharlin and Michael Walters.

4. St Kilda has dominated Fremantle at Etihad Stadium, winning seven games to one. The Dockers’ only win at the venue was in round four, 2012.
5. Fremantle has won eight straight matches since round nine and defence has again been the key, keeping its opposition to an average of only 55 points per game.
6. Fremantle star Nat Fyfe has been on a constant climb in the Official AFL Player Ratings, brought to you by Gatorade, moving from No.76 overall in round four to now sit at No.14. He has averaged just 6.1 points against the Saints, however, his lowest against any opponent.
