Flying start to 2016
DOCKERS DON’T MISS A BEAT
AN almost full strength Fremantle Dockers team proved too much for Richmond in the opening round of the NAB Cup.
A 14.6.90 to 4.6.30 scoreline on Friday night’s match in Mandurah outlined the extent of the Docker’s scoring prowess, but the local team also dominated in possession, clearances and hitouts.
The Docker’s engine room proved too strong, with Lachie Neale and Michael Barlow get- ting 29 and 27 touches respectively, while Matthew Pavlich showed doubters age was no barrier to kicking four goals.
Fremantle will play Adelaide in Mt Barker on Sunday.
