R4 fixture: Freo heads home, Roos and Pies clash at Marvel

FREMANTLE'S road trip has been cut short after one weekend, with the undefeated Dockers drawn to host Gold Coast at Fremantle Oval on Saturday in round four.

The Dockers had expected to be away from home for a few weeks, but that has not proven to be the case yet.

With Victoria under lockdown conditions until Wednesday evening, the AFL has fixtured the state's clubs against each other.

Nat Edwards and Daisy Pearce discuss the impact of fixture uncertainty on the players, Ellie Blackburn's elite form and how the Lions dismantled the Suns

North Melbourne, reeling after a shock loss to Melbourne, will host Collingwood at Marvel Stadium on Saturday night.

The last time the sides met in an official capacity was in a nail-biting 2020 semi-final, where the Kangaroos triumphed by just two points.

As it currently stands, crowds will be in attendance in games outside of Victoria, with the AFL waiting for further state government advice for matches in Melbourne.

A resurgent GWS will be hoping for two wins on the trot when it hosts West Coast at Blacktown.

Two pairs of traditional AFLW rivals will also play on Sunday, with Adelaide traveling to Hickey Park to take on Brisbane and the Western Bulldogs playing Melbourne for the Hampson-Hardeman Cup at VU Whitten Oval.

Geelong will kick off the round for a second week straight, taking on St Kilda at RSEA Park, while the clash between Carlton and Richmond at Ikon Park will pit the Hosking twins, Jess (Blues) and Sarah (Tigers), against each other for the first time.

Tickets for games at Blacktown, Fremantle and Hickey Park will go on sale for members at 12pm local time on Wednesday, and for the general public an hour later at 1pm.

Given there are still question marks over the possibility of crowds in Victoria, ticketing details for those matches have not been released.

Meanwhile, Victorian teams are allowed to train in groups of 10 while the state is under lockdown conditions, with the hope that lockdown will be lifted by the second training session of the week.
