AFL Mid-Season Report Card
Win/Loss: 6-5 Ladder: 7th
Next four: Melb, Bris, GC, Bye
Flag odds: $34
Mike’s mark: B+
SuperCoach hero: Matthew Pavlich (112)
In a nutshell: Got to tip our hats to Mark Harvey, as Freo remains in the top-four race despite a horror injury run. Could win next three games.
Pressure point: The Dockers will have to find another clearance specialist without David Mundy for the next two months. Michael Barlow, welcome back.
Upside: It’s a total no-risk policy with Aaron Sandilands’ injured foot. He may not return until Round 17, after the Dockers’ bye.
Defining moment: The win against Essendon without Sandilands on Sunday could be a watershed moment for the Dockers. They can’t be a one-man band.
Borrowed time: Rhys Palmer can start boxing up his things. Kevin Sheedy says Greater Western Sydney has already signed one midfielder and we suspect it’s him.
