Watch AFL ANZAC Day Fremantle Dockers vs North Melbourne Kangaroos Live Streaming 25 April 2014, Friday, Patersons Stadium, 20:45
After a loss to Sydney, Ross Lyon could make some changes to Freo’s set-up. Garrick Ibbotson should return, Tom Sheridan and Hayden Crozier are in the mix to replace Hayden Ballantyne (suspension) whilst Michael Apeness and Matt Taberner are knocking on the door. For North, Majak Daw looms as an option are a dominant VFL game last weekend – 5 goals. Joel Tippett will make his club debut to replace the suspended Scott Thompson. Jack Ziebell (shoulder) must pass a fitness test in order to play whilst Daniel Wells will miss.
Freo are 3-2 with two losses to Hawthorn and Sydney away from Perth. In two games at home this year they’ve won by 48 and 53 points. North had won three in-a-row before last week’s disappointing loss to Collingwood. They’ll be looking to assert their finals chances with a win this weekend.
Low scoring affair last season with Fremantle restricting North to just 29-points from nine scoring shots. Nat Fyfe had 28 disposals and a goal to snare the three Brownlow votes whilst Andrew Swallow had 31 touches for the Roos.
Brent Harvey v Ryan Crowley: The competition’s premier tagger will either be assigned to the Kangaroos’ veteran or smooth-moving Nick Dal Santo. I wouldn’t be surprised to see him go to Harvey – he’s still North’s big match-winner and is averaging 22 touches and over a goal per game in 2014. If he can be shut down North rarely win.
