Adelaide, former home of Matthew Pavlich, Lachie Neale and Clive Waterhouse. Two out of three ain't bad. Fremantle have drawn the short straw this week and will have to head over to play in the third most southern state against their number 1 ranked side, the Adelaide Crows. The Dockers are headed for 9 wins this week, with Ross Lyon confident enough that he’s had to start praising the quality of opposition. He also hasn’t bothered making any changes to the team that thumped North Melbourne last week, deciding instead to send the full team over to South Australia to do a couple of things. Firstly, to make sure that, should Adelaide still be around in September, they are fully aware of what to expect from the soon to be premiership side. Secondly, to make sure they spread the word to their cousins at Port, in case the message didn’t sink in from round one.
