The Dockers are in the eight after their huge win against the Tigers last weekend, and they will get a chance to keep that spot with an upset over the Lions. 

Brayshaw (39 disposals, 12 tackles, 8 clearances) had arguably the best game of his career alongside Cerra (33 disposals). Ryan (27 disposals) held down the fort in defence, whilst Taberner (3 goals) did enough in front of goals to give Fremantle a winning score. Overall, it was one of Fremantle’s best team performances of the season, and they deserve to currently be in the 8.

The Lions are currently 6th on the ladder with a bit of a form slump, losing 3 of their last 4 , which include losses against Hawthorn, Richmond and St Kilda. They are a healthy side compared to the rest of the league, so there should really be no excuses for this form slump. 

Jarryd Lyons (38 disposals, 1 goal) continued his career best year, whilst Zorko (29 disposals, 1 goal) and Rich (32 disposals), but it didn’t matter as they let Hawthorn kick their equal second-highest score of the season.

The Lions have locked in a top 8 spot, with their chance of a top 4 spot almost gone unless a boil-over from either Port Adelaide or Melbourne.  

Verdict

I think Fremantle will keep this very close and may even lead late, but I am backing Brisbane to tough it out and get their season back on track right before finals.
