Fremantle have managed to avoid being further impacted by COVID, with the side for their Friday night clash set to line up as named.

There had been concerns the Dockers may suffer more COVID cases on the back of six players being impacted during the week, with Travis Colyer, Blake Acres, Rory Lobb, Michael Frederick, Lloyd Meek and Griffin Logue all being forced into isolation.

But Freo were unscathed any further, with no late changes for their Optus Stadium clash with North Melbourne.

Last year’s National Draft pick 10 Neil Erasmus will be the Dockers’ sub, on the same night the man who went at No.8 in the same draft, Jye Amiss, makes his debut.

The Kangaroos also went in unchanged, with Jack Mahony the sub.

Despite their half-dozen changes, Fremantle start a raging $1.10 favourite to snare a sixth consecutive victory in their first Friday night clash since 2016.
