Mundy stars as Dockers crush Kangaroos

  Mundy stars as Dockers crush Kangaroos Fremantle skipper Nat Fyfe had another wayward day in front of goal, but the Dockers still beat North Melbourne by 51 points for their third win on the trot. Mundy tallied 30 disposals, eight clearances, and three goals in the 14.15 (99) to 6.12 (48) win on Saturday night.

Fremantle's horror injury run has continued with Sam Sturt, Joel Hamling, Bailey Banfield, Ethan Hughes and Heath Chapman receiving bad news.

The Dockers will seek specialist advice after Sturt injured his knee while playing in the WAFL. No timeline has been set for his return.

Hamling hasn't played since injuring his ankle in round one and the Dockers hoped he would return within the next fortnight.

But a recent scan showed his recovery hadn't progressed as was hoped, with a timeline for his return still to be determined.

'Ridiculous': Port Adelaide boss David Koch calls out AFL over prison bar guernsey saga

  'Ridiculous': Port Adelaide boss David Koch calls out AFL over prison bar guernsey saga Port Adelaide chairman David Koch has called out the AFL, as the club still await confirmation as to whether they can wear their prison bar guernsey. The issue has been raised multiple times by the club, as they look to wear a black and white striped kit to commemorate their 150-year anniversary. Ahead of their round 8 'Showdown' with cross-town rivals the Adelaide Crows, Koch has again asked the league for a decision. “Quite frankly it is ridiculous that we are still waiting for an answer," he said. "We first approached the AFL on this matter two years ago in the lead up to our 150th anniversary season.

Hughes and Chapman injured their shoulders in last week's loss to West Coast, with the pair now set for a yet-to-be-determined stint on the sidelines.

Banfield is also set for another frustrating break after re-injuring his ankle in the WAFL.

All-Australian defender Luke Ryan will miss another week with a minor calf injury.

Sam Switkowski (finger) and Alex Pearce (ankle) are expected to return to playing duties next week while midfielder Adam Cerra is expected to return within the next fortnight.

Veteran Stephen Hill (hamstring) is still listed as being five to six weeks away from returning.

Defender Hayden Young (hamstring) will miss up to eight more weeks.
