The Sydney Swans and Fremantle played out a classic in round 9 with the Dockers, led by superstar skipper Nathan Fyfe, getting the points in a thriller.

Sydney vs Fremantle match preview
Fyfe was simply outstanding in the Dockers' 2-point win against the Swans back in round 9, helping his team to their third straight victory over the Sydneysiders.
The win came despite the heroic efforts of Sydney talisman Lance "Buddy" Franklin, who delighted the Perth crowd with a showstopping performance. He snagged 6 goals including 3 in the final quarter as he tried to will his team home. It was not enough, though, with Fyfe's 27 disposals, 13 clearances and a goal proving the difference.
Expect the Swans to place a lot of attention on Fyfe this Sunday. They return to the ground they won at in extreme circumstances against the Giants last week. That win left Swans coach John Longmire in tears and has the club within reach of the top 4. We think the tears will come from Fremantle this week. Swans to win.
