With some impeccable timing, Fremantle look poised to set a VFL/AFL record this weekend for the most Indigenous players to line up for one team in a game.

In time for the Sir Doug Nicholls Round, the Dockers are set to play 8 Aboriginal players for the first time in history.

With the injury of Aaron Sandilands, fellow ruckman Jon Griffin was named by Ross Lyon as his "most likely" replacement.

Assuming an unchanged line-up is named, Griffin would join Michael JohnsonBrad HillStephen HillMichael WaltersDanyle PearceJoel Hamling and Brady Grey.

Fremantle currently hold the joint record for most Indigenous players in a game with 7 - set in 2003 over the course of 6 games.

This was equalled in Round 23 of 2015 when Port Adelaide named the same number in their side.

Fremantle take on the Crows at Adelaide Oval on Saturday night.
