The Dockers appeared to have their act together before last week’s thrilling fourth quarter turned into a missed opportunity against Carlton.
Like the Fremantle of old, wayward goal kicking cost the Dockers in their 16-point defeat, while a similar theme unfolded at Marvel not long after in Hawthorn’s 34-point defeat to Port Adelaide.
A trip to the cold and windy conditions in Tasmania is hardly what either team needs right now, but it does lend itself to a potentially low-scoring game when you consider the Dockers and Hawks both rank 13th and 14th respectively in goals scored.
You could argue Hawthorn is a good bet to win this game when you factor in Freo’s 1-11 record in games played in Tassie, but after struggling mightily inside 50 last week against Port, there’s a good chance we see a similar story unfold against a Dockers defence that doesn’t give up many easy chances.
