Fremantle have blown away GWS in the final term, with six goals to one sealing a big win for the Dockers in Canberra.
The Dockers held the Giants goal-less for much of the final quarter to complete the 16.10 (106) to 11.16 (82) win in front of 11,277 fans at Manuka Oval.
The Dockers’ tall forwards shone, with Matt Taberner outstanding, collecting 13 marks and kicking three goals, while Jesse Hogan also bagged three majors.

Michael Walters was a big influence up forward and in the middle, with 25 touches and three goals, returning skipper Nat Fyfe finished with 31 disposals and Brandon Matera snared four goals in the upset win.
GWS were unbackable favourites heading into the Saturday contest and could have gone top with a win but it was the Dockers who instead climbed into second spot.
The Dockers wasted chances with some point-blank misses and poor set shots in the first half but delivered when it mattered in the final quarter.
GWS were left to rue missed opportunities as wayward kicking and a lacklustre fourth term cost them in the capital, where they had won nine in a row.
Giants star midfielder Stephen Coniglio topped the charts with 37 disposals, while Jeremy Cameron booted four goals in the absence of injured star Callan Ward.
Dockers defender Taylin Duman could find himself in trouble with the match review panel after shoving Lachie Whitfield in the face in the third quarter but will likely just cop a fine.
GWS veteran Matt de Boer was tipped to shadow Fyfe but also spent time on Andrew Brayshaw and Bradley Hill in a busy afternoon for the in-form tagger.
Giants co-captain and key defender Phil Davis went off in the final term with an ankle injury.
