Giants ready themselves for Nat Fyfe of old in Dockers clash

Greater Western Sydney midfielder Tom Green is embracing the chance to line up on Nat Fyfe for the first time as the Giants set about putting a dent in Fremantle’s AFL top-four hopes.

The Dockers need to beat GWS in Canberra on Saturday and then hope either Collingwood or Sydney lose in order to snare a top-four berth and the double finals chance that comes with it.

Fremantle forward Rory Lobb has been ruled out due to his ongoing shoulder injury, but Fyfe returns for the first time since straining his left hamstring three weeks ago.

Fyfe is set to play a significant stint up forward in the absence of Lobb and Matt Taberner, but he’ll also be unleashed for some midfield minutes.

Green, who has become one of the AFL’s best young midfielders, can’t wait to come face to face with the Dockers skipper, and he isn’t expecting an easy ride.

“I actually haven’t played Nat Fyfe in my career, so I’m personally looking forward to it,” Green said.

“We know what a champion he is. He’s a two-time Brownlow medallist and he’s been a superstar for the best part of a decade now.

“As a young player, I’m really excited to go head to head with someone of that calibre.

“He’s had to battle some injuries this year, but with all champions, they always seem to find a way. So we’re not expecting a lesser version of Nat Fyfe.”
