What it means for Fremantle: Fremantle are a mathematical finals chance but not a realistic hope after a drop in form and scoring. They have lost five from six and need to stop the season from slipping away.

What it means for Geelong: Two more wins should be enough for the Cats to claim top spot given their excellent percentage and, while that will be the main aim, Chris Scott's men will want to build on their win over Sydney after some shaky form.

The stat: Fremantle will play the Cats at Optus Stadium for the first time on Saturday afternoon. In their past eight visits to WA, Fremantle has defeated Geelong three times with Geelong winning five. Four of those games have been decided by eleven points or less.

The match-up: Tom Hawkins v Joel Hamling

Hawkins monstered the Swans in game 250, bagging five majors to move within 10 of Coleman Medal leader Jeremy Cameron (57). The big Cat, ranked the No.2 key forward by the Official AFL Player Ratings, has 11kg on Hamling (No.15 key defender) and while the Docker can hold his own, he could use some help from his teammates to limit Hawkins' impact.

It's a big week for: Tim Kelly (Geelong)

Back in his home state, the Brownlow Medal chance will be the centre of attention everywhere he goes as speculation about his future continues. The former South Fremantle star will be keen to perform at Optus Stadium.
