Fremantle have six more games at Optus Stadium in the second half of 2018.

At the bye, Fremantle has six wins and seven losses and sits in twelfth place on the AFL ladder.

Fremantlefc.com.au takes a look at the team’s run home for their remaining nine games of the season.

Home comforts

With Fremantle 5-2 at Optus Stadium in 2018, the club can look for a push up the ladder with six of their remaining nine games at their home ground.

Clashes against Port Adelaide, Hawthorn and Collingwood highlight the remaining games for the Freo Faithful while an ‘away’ derby against West Coast will be an exciting challenge as Fremantle looks to reverse their narrow eight-point defeat in round six.

From North to South

When Freo do travel, they will be heading far and wide with a trip to Darwin to face Melbourne at TIO Stadium as well as a visit to Geelong in round 22.

From three games played in Darwin, Freo has one victory – a 63-point win against Melbourne in 2014.

Despite being known as one of the toughest away trips in the AFL, Freo boasts reasonable form at GMHBA Stadium. Freo’s won two from their past five visits to the ground, with two of those losses coming by just two points – most recently in 2017. 

No easy games

There’s no such thing as an easy game at AFL level however the run home does throw a number of different challenges Freo’s way.

Freo faces clashes against some of the league’s top sides in West Coast and Melbourne, while both Brisbane (currently 17th on the ladder) and Carlton (18th) will visit WA

With Freo still in the finals hunt, clashes against Hawthorn (9th), Port Adelaide (7th) and Essendon (13th) will go a long way in deciding Fremantle’s fate.
