Reigning Premier Melbourne takes on another top-four contender this week. Fremantle is coming to town for their first MCG gig this year.
On their quest for 18 straight wins against Fremantle, Melbourne continue to grab everyone ahead of them after another 47-point win last week as they improve to 10-0 on the season. The Prime Ministers-in-Office rise to every challenge and look very much like the team to beat again.
The Fremantle Dockers flew two weeks ago, but a tough couple of weeks may have shaken confidence a bit. Losses on the Gold Coast and Collingwood make them need a win to keep their path going.
When does Melbourne play Fremantle?
This match takes place at Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) on Saturday 28 May and starts at 4:35pm AEST.

Match preview Melbourne vs Fremantle
Fremantle are getting closer to a Nat Fyfe return but for the most part they’ve covered him beautifully this year. The last 2 weeks have been frustrating but not without some small positives along the way.
Unfortunately, if you need a win to regain your form, Melbourne at the MCG isn’t the first place you would look for it. The Demons have been extensive in their dominance this year and no matter the challenge, they seem to have the answers. We expect they’ll be challenged again here, but will react again to post a win.
Here’s a breakdown of the entire AFL season draw.
