HALF TIME 

Melbourne leads by 21 points at the main break.

The game was in the balance for much of the first half, but a ten-minute, five-goal burst from the Demons broke the game open.

Leigh Matthews said Melbourne’s small forwards are making the difference.

‘Melbourne just look a little bit more dangerous when they go forward,’ he said.

They may have lost last week, but the Demons have looked good early in 2017.

However, Freo will come to town with their tails up after a stirring win over the premiers in Round 3.

With Max Gawn injured for an extended period, Docker ruckman Aaron Sandilands could be a key factor in this one.

Can the Dockers back up on last week’s effort? 

Or will the Demons make a statement that they’re here to stay?
