Fremantle took all the confidence, excitement and momentum from last week's win against the Kangaroo and binned it, opting for more of the gardening inducing football from previous season.It was the sort of game you walk away from mumbling something about you're just happy to get the 4 points...if you got the 4 points, otherwise you mumble something about the player you hate the most being a liability or the coach needing to be sacked. Fremantle didn't have any of their free flowing ball movement, with leading forward's hair flowing in the wind as lace out passes landed on their chests in a never ending supply of champagne football. This was more of the chip it around, fumble it and then boot it to the other team stuff. The Gold Coast did their best to keep Fremantle in it, kicking or goals as if their mates couldn't get seats behind the goals but they'd promised them a free footy each. It was embarrassing for everyone concerned but slightly less embarrassing for the Gold Coast who snuck home with a 3 point win.


Fremantle lost by 3 points.
