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.

Brisbane will welcome back stalwart Daniel Merrett from suspension whilst Pearce Hanley and Josh Green could both return from injury. Whilst for the Saints, Adam Schneider will miss after being suspended. Former All-Australian Sam Fisher could return as may New Zealand native Shane Savage.

The Lions are serioulsy struggling having lost all five games in 2014 with a disastrous points differential of -282. They stuck around against Richmond on Easter Thursday before being blown away after half-time. Whilst the Saints have surprisingly won three of their first five matches including a huge upset against Essendon last weekend.

Tom Rockliff led the Lions to an easy 31-point win in round 19 last season. Rockliff helped himself to 39 disposals to get the three Brownlow votes. Daniel Merrett and Daniel Rich both kicked three goals each. Whilst for the Saints, David Armitage and Nick Dal Santo – both not playing this game – had 30 disposals each.

Daniel Merrett v Nick Riewoldt: Riewoldt sits equal with Jay Schulz at the top of the Coleman Medal ladder with 17 goals (at the start of this round). The Saints veteran is having a stellar start to the year averaging 20 disposals, 11 marks and over three goals per game including a dominant five goals last weekend.

Watch AFL ANZAC Test Collingwood vs Essendon Live Streaming Friday 25 April,14: 40, Melbourne Cricket Ground Stadium, Melbourne.

The Anzac Day clash is associate degree annual Australian rules football match between Australian league (AFL) groups Collingwood and Essendon, endured Anzac Day (25 April) at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG).

Collingwood and Essendon are the final words of the ANZAC oath, read out each ANZAC day at ceremonies right around Australia and New Zealand, on a day that has become as respected as any in the Australasian calendar. Since 1995, the AFL has honoured the ANZAC’s before a packed crowd at the MCG, with a game between Collingwood and Essendon whose result isn’t anywhere as meaningful as the day itself. But since that first game in 1995, which fittingly ended in a draw, sporting events of the major codes have helped raise awareness of the ANZAC’s and what they did for their nation. Many made the ultimate sacrifice and it’s right that now the day, and our servicemen and women get the respect they deserve. The pre match service at the MCG on this day is as moving and as touching as any memorial day held anywhere in the world, and this year that tradition will continue.

Obviously though there’s a game to be played, and while it’s still just a game it’s of vital importance to the respective teams. Collingwood, the biggest sporting organisation in the land, come into this game with renewed vigour and confidence after two strong wins in a row, while Essendon come in on the back of two rather embarrassing losses. If history has taught us anything about this annual clash, ladder positions and form can be thrown out the window and anything can and probably will happen on the day. From the beginning, and that now famous draw, there’s been epic finishes to these matches on a regular basis, as shown by the 2009 and 2012 results. In 2009 in driving rain the Bombers David Zaharakis kicked the match winning goal with only seconds left, while in 2012 Magpie Jarryd Blair returned the favour with a scrambling last minute goal to return the favour. So be careful about digging too far into the form for this one, and maybe just sit back and enjoy another ANZAC day classic.
