Fremantle Dockers coach Justin Longmuir says it’s too early for forward-line changes after round one loss

Fremantle coach Justin Longmuir has described the team’s shock round one loss to St Kilda as a wake-up call but stopped short of wanting to make major changes to the game plan or new-look forward line.

Fremantle entered the game as clear favourites against a St Kilda team that was missing key group of players due to injury but lost 10.7 (67) to 7.10 (52). The Dockers had 65 inside 50s, but their last goal came seven minutes into the third quarter.

Nat Fyfe was quiet with only nine possessions and one behind, Matt Taberner was subbed out after kicking one goal from his nine touches and Josh Treacy finished wth only three disposals and one goal.

Fremantle moved Fyfe forward as part of a new forward line and Longmuir admitted nothing went right.

“Clearly the outcome says it didn’t function the way we would have liked,” Longmuir said.
