Fremantle have decided that the 'Steady as she goes' method of team selection was just as bad as any of their other methods so this week they've thrown caution to the wind and made 2 changes. Proper changes too, not injuries or suspension changes. Travis Colyer will be denied the opportunity to rub his new team's success in the faces of this old team mates, with the axe swinging on him, as well as Ryan Nyhuis. Connor Blakely will come back into the team after his leg took took too long to heal and he missed the pre-season, and Taylin Duman is back after serving a week off for thuggery, which was originally 2 weeks off for thuggery but Fremantle challenged it at the tribunal, then didn't play him for following 2 weeks.
