Fremantle head over to Melbourne this week right in the middle of Richmond's traditional May slide down the ladder in was is expected to be a fiery contest, with the Dockers keen to push up into the top 8 and Richmond looking to take the much coveted 9th spot from Freo. Another rich tradition is that the Fremantle selectors like to hit the pub after a win and not return until the team loses a couple in a row. Much to their annoyance, Harley Balic has pulled up crook this week so they've had to copy and paste from their standard list of blokes to go onto the long interchange bench - which sees Danyle Pearce, Griffin Logue, Tommy Sheridan, Nick Suban all into the squad for Sunday.
