West Coast and Fremantle will meet twice in the pre-season

WEST Coast and Fremantle will meet twice in the space of 16 days during the 2014 pre-season.

The Eagles and Dockers will do battle in a NAB Challenge game at Joondalup on Tuesday, February 18.

They will then play a practice match at Patersons Stadium on Thursday, March 6.

The AFL has confirmed that the two clubs asked to play each other twice to minimise their pre-season travel commitments.

The full list of practice matches that will follow the NAB Challenge was released by the League on Monday afternoon.

Not all clubs have the luxury of staying close to home, with Adelaide off to western Sydney, Collingwood heading to the Gold Coast and St Kilda to visit Port Adelaide.

Richmond fans are likely to be very excited about the prospect of the Tigers taking on Essendon at the redeveloped Punt Road Oval, although the match might yet take place at Craigieburn in Melbourne's northern suburbs.
