Fremantle Dockers defence to tackle Sydney Swans offence in top eight showdown

The clash between Fremantle and Sydney is set to be a tale of two philosophies, with the Docker’s miserly defence against the run and gun of the Swans.

Fremantle have built their campaign around stopping teams scoring and the numbers reflect this.

They are the best team in the competition at restricting goals from their forward entries as well as at not being burned on turnovers and limiting the other team’s ability to go coast-to-coast and score.

The Dockers are so good at restricting ball movement they also rank sixth for preventing opposition getting into their forward 50 from the back 50.
