Key match-ups

Brayshaw v Adams

Brayshaw is averaging an elite number of disposals (29) and was ferocious last week - he made 10 tackles against the Suns and was named in Fremantle's best. Adams continues to lead by example - he is averaging 23 disposals and five clearances and notched up eight score involvements and 10 contested possessions against the Bulldogs. 

Switkowski v Quaynor 

Switkowski - returning after missing round nine with concussion - has been in career-best form this year and will bolster the Dockers' forward line. The small forward has kicked 10 goals from eight matches and is averaging an elite number of tackles (four), contributing to the defensive structure which has made it difficult for opposition teams to move the ball out of Fremantle's attacking 50. Quaynor has likewise been producing consistent performances and averaging an elite number of tackles (three) per match. He made six intercepts against the Bulldogs last week.

Look out for

The Pies will be ready to play from the first bounce and determined to set the tone early, after allowing the Bulldogs to run rampant and open a 39-point lead in the first term last round. Expect improvement from Collingwood's on-ball brigade at centre clearances.
