FREMANTLE utility Lachie Weller says the Dockers will move on quickly from its 100-point drubbing at the hands of Adelaide on Saturday.

The Dockers were bounced 20.23 (143) to 6.7 (43), with Weller was one of his side’s stronger performers in the half-back role he has made his own this year, tallying a season-high 30 disposals to go with two goals.

He said the Dockers would not dwell on the result.

“It was a disappointing game, especially (considering) our form the last month to six weeks,” he said.

“We just move on.”

Weller dismissed the Dockers put the cue in the rack early on in the clash against the Crows and said they would prepare well for Collingwood at home on Sunday.

“We stick to the process,” he said.

“Win, lose or draw, we still review it a lot.

“We still have to take ownership of our actions on the weekend and really come out firing on the weekend to try and bounce back.”

The 12th-placed Magpies travel to Perth having built some momentum with recent wins over Hawthorn and Brisbane and sit just outside the eight on percentage.

“We expect a massive bounce-back from our boys but they’ve come off two wins so they’re up and about and we expect a pretty fierce contest,” Weller said.
