Fremantle have selected their first-ever team for an AFL grand final and it's the same 22 that won the preliminary final.
Coach Ross Lyon and the selectors made no changes. Alex Silvagni, Tom Sheridan and Jack Hannath were named as the emergencies and flew with the team to Melbourne.
Fremantle general manager of football operations Chris Bond said it was pleasing to enter the grand final with a stable line-up, but he spared a thought for those who will miss out, including Garrick Ibbotson and Clancee Pearce, who sustained season-ending injuries close to the finals.
Hawk Jordan Lewis said earlier in the week that his side's defensive pressure was similar to Fremantle's, and Bond agreed with him.
"They've been the best team in the competition all year and that's only one aspect of their ability that they've got," Bond said.
"They are very strong in all areas."Bond said Hawthorn's midfield was also incredibly deep and talented, meaning a Ryan Crowley-Sam Mitchell match-up was not set in stone.
