Who will win Dockers vs Tigers?

Fremantle suffered a blow to their finals chances last round and not just by losing to Sydney. The Dockers also lost captain Nat Fyfe for the season to a shoulder injury while star forward Michael Walters is out for some time with a hamstring injury.

The loss of Fyfe means veteran midfield mate David Mundy will carry the load for his side as they face a daunting run home in a bid for September action with Brisbane, West Coast and St Kilda to come after the Tigers.

Fresh off playing game 350, Mundy's next milestone should be equalling then beating the Fremantle games record of 353 games held by legendary captain Matthew Pavlich.

The Tigers have a favourable run home but a loss against the Dockers will make their run difficult. They haven't lost to the Dockers since round 8, 2017. Without Fyfe or Walters to worry about we think the Tigers will be winners on Sunday.
