Game notes: With their season on a knife’s edge, the Western Bulldogs return to the MCG for only the second time this season. The Bulldogs won their previous encounter at the ‘G against Collingwood in round one, but have won only two of their past eight games, and their premiership defence would be in tatters if they lost to an improving Carlton on Sunday. At the start of this round the Dogs were languishing in 11th position with a poor percentage (92.4). Carlton has been brave in narrow defeats to top-four aspirants Adelaide and Melbourne in the past two games, but the loss of star midfielder Patrick Cripps will sorely test the Blues’ midfield depth. Ruckman Matthew Kreuzer and skipper Marc Murphy are in excellent form and should kick-start Carlton in the engine-room, while the youngsters led by the exciting Charlie Curnow are showing plenty of promising signs.

Hutta’s Tip: Bulldogs by 15 points.
