Aussie Rules: Dockers facing selection headache

Fremantle coach Justin Longmuir admits he faces something of a selection headache as the Dockers will welcome back six players against the Gold Coast on Sunday.

Freo are priced at 29/50 to beat the Suns and continue their impressive start to the season that has seen them win seven of the opening eight games.

Players returning

The Dockers picked up a comfortable win over North Melbourne at Optus Stadium last weekend and did it without Rory Lobb, Blake Acres and Griffin Logue.

Travis Colyer, Michael Frederick and Lloyd Meek are also back available and Longmuir has some tough decisions to make.

"Bringing six guys back, it’s going to be tough. It’s a bit of a juggling act and we’ll have to work through that after training,” he told reporters.

Ryan ankle injury

One player who looks set to miss out is Luke Ryan who is making slow progress after picking up an ankle injury. And Longmuir will not rush him back as he has plenty of options in the backline.

"He’s a little bit slower than what we would have liked, but we’ve got a nine-day break and we’ve still got a fair bit of time between now and game day," Longmuir said of Ryan.

"We’ll give him every opportunity to come up. He’s a really important player for us and a leader of our backline. It hasn’t improved as quickly as we would have liked but that’s normal when you roll your ankle for the first time.”
