The Dockers have been handball happy all season, but they took it too far against the Lions, registering 194 handballs and 187 kicks.
Longmuir was happy with the dare his side showed, but acknowledged they handballed too much.
“We’ve been putting a lot of work into the mental side of our game and trying to free up our players to play what’s in front of them and play with a bit more freedom,” Longmuir said.
“We probably saw that come out in over handballing on the weekend, but we keep educating our players to play what’s in front of them and try to play with dare.
“We’ve got a real focus of getting to the outside with our handball – but not over doing it – and making sure our handball contributes to us getting field position or scoring.”
Fremantle veteran Nat Fyfe will make his playing return this weekend if he can get through Wednesday’s main training unscathed.
Fyfe (plantar fasciitis) hasn’t played since round one, and Longmuir is yet to decide whether the former skipper will return against the Hawks or through the WAFL.
Michael Frederick (groin) is a chance to return, but Heath Chapman will miss a minimum of six to eight weeks with a serious hamstring injury.
Longmuir is weighing up the prospect of recalling spearhead Josh Treacy to help beef up the struggling forward line.
