Avid readers of this blog may note I tipped a Dockers victory and Paul Medhurst to score two goals against Port Adelaide in today's game.

With a Medhurst double contributing to a rare Dockers win at Adelaide's Football Park - the House of Shane - I'm feeling pretty chuffed with myself. Yes, I'm pretty darn clever. Good looking and modest too.

Former Port premiership player Josh Carr had a Herculian game against his old side, Shaun McManus scored his first then second goals since the 2004 season, and Indian rubber man Luke McPharlin chimed in with 3 majors.

The Wiz was effervescent in both attack and defence. He is, in short, the complete small footballer.

However, the team is still disturbingly indecisive when in goal-scoring range, which could cost it dearly against the better teams, like Adelaide, which it plays at Subiaco next weekend.

On the upside, the Freo fadeout so evident last year (and almost last week) was arrested this week, with players such as Des finishing with a Headland full of steam.

FREMANTLE: 15.20 (110)
PORT ADELAIDE: 11.13 (79)

Fremantle: McPharlin 3, Medhurst 2, Headland 2, J.Carr 2, McManus 2, Farmer, Black, Bell, Pavlich

INJURIES - Fremantle: Nil, Port Adelaide Wilson (hamstring)
CROWD - 25,042 at Football Park, Adelaide
