Longmuir: players got reward for effort

Dockers coach Justin Longmuir has praised his side's four quarter performance against the Blues on Saturday night.


Fremantle broke the game open with a five goal burst during the quarter to runaway with a 35-point win.


Lachie Schultz was the main avenue to goal booting four majors in the 14.13.87 to 9.8.62.


"I thought we just stuck to our task all night. The boys are believing in our footy and no matter what the scoreboard is, they just stick at it. I think they understand what's really important in our game." Longmuir said.


"I just thought we were relentless with our footy all night and the players got reward for effort."

Andy Brayshaw and Will Brodie collected 27-disposals as the Dockers moved to a five wins, one loss record.


Longmuir said they would enjoy the journey and the pressure that comes with being one of the hunted sides in the competition.


"It becomes a long year if you don't enjoy the wins, so we will enjoy the wins, anchor and then we'll move on at the right time."


Sean Darcy was subbed out of the game with concussion and will miss next week's match.
