Fremantle take on the Giants on Saturday in Canberra.

Fremantle have named an unchanged starting 22 heading into Saturday’s clash with GWS at UNSW Canberra Oval.

It’s the first time in more-than a year that Fremantle have named an unchanged line-up, sticking with the same team that defeated Gold Coast by 28-points at Optus Stadium in round two.

Darcy Tucker will travel as an emergency alongside 19-year-old Taylin Duman, who is yet to debut for Freo since joining the club on the rookie list in 2016.

First-year ruckman Scott Jones and midfielder Danyle Pearce are Freo’s other two emergencies.


The game will be Fremantle’s second game in Canberra in the club’s history. In 2002, Freo travelled to Canberra to play the Kangaroos, with the Roos winning in a thriller 12.11 (83) to 12.10 (82).

The game will be broadcast live on Fox Sports from 11.30am (WST), however the game will have a 165-minute delay into Perth on 7mate (2.30pm WST).
