History suggests Fremantle Dockers preliminary final bound after turning defence into offence

Everyone has heard the saying the best defence is offence, but the Dockers have taken a different, potentially premiership-challenging approach to start the season.

Fremantle leads the league in turnover scoring difference, meaning they score more from the opposition’s turnovers than the opposition score from theirs.

They currently sit at plus 188 points across five games at an average of plus 37 points per game, the highest five-game average since Essendon in 2013.

And it is not just the pressure of the defensive players – who allow the fewest inside-50s of any team in the AFL – leading the charge, but Fremantle’s elite midfield group.
