Fremantle Dockers coach Justin Longmire says it’s too early to change the offensive line after first-round loss

Fremantle coach Justin Longmire described the team’s shock in round one losing St Kilda as a wake-up call but did not want to make major changes to the game plan or the new line of aspiration.

Fremantle entered the match as favorites against a St Kilda side who had lost a key group of players to injury but lost 10.7 (67) to 7.10 (52). The Dockers had a 65 in the 50s, but their final goal came seven minutes into the third quarter.

Nat Fife were quiet with only nine possessions and one behind, Matt Tabberner was taken out after kicking a goal with one of his nine touchdowns and Josh Tracy finished with three disposals and only one goal.

Fremantle moved Fife forward as part of a new forward line and Longmuir admitted nothing was going right.

“Obviously the result says it didn’t work the way we would have liked,” said Longmuir.
