Game Chat – Western Bulldogs v Brisbane

Written by Thommo on April 22 2017

Venue: Etihad Stadium at 1:45pm AEST


R5, 2016, Western Bulldogs 17.18 (120) d Brisbane Lions 10.7 (67) at Etihad Stadium
R23, 2015, Brisbane Lions 19.16 (130) d Western Bulldogs 19.8 (122) at the Gabba
R12, 2015, Western Bulldogs 22.14 (146) d Brisbane Lions 11.8 (74) at Etihad Stadium
R12, 2014, Brisbane Lions 14.11 (95) d Western Bulldogs 13.9 (87) at Etihad Stadium
R22, 2013, Brisbane Lions 15.10 (100) d Western Bulldogs 13.15 (93) at the Gabba

Game notes: With coach Luke Beveridge recently lamenting the Bulldogs’ “spits and spurts” form line this season, a big win over a young and developing Brisbane Lions side could kick-start their premiership defence. Efficiency up forward has continued to plague the Dogs like last season, and the result is the second lowest percentage of the top-eight sides. They will employ a smaller attack in the injury absences of Travis Cloke, Jack Redpath and Jordan Roughead. While the Lions knocked off the premiers at Etihad Stadium in the JLT Community Series, their recent record at the venue is poor. Coach Chris Fagan will be hoping gun midfielders Dayne Beams, Tom Rockliff and Dayne Zorko can continue their impressive form, and young key forward Josh Schache can be a target up forward.

Thommo’s Tip: Western Bulldogs by 25 points.

      1. Traded him out yesterday. Looks like the decision is more justifiable now! That would have been awkward if he came in :/ Macrae, don’t make me regret it.


  1. Just upgraded Taranto to Macrae. Feel good about that.

    Also realised my captaincy loophole plans of Fyfe into Danger weren’t going to work so it’s now Rocky into Danger.

    Also got Beamsy and Dahl rolling around this arvo so it’s an important match for my score this week.


      1. One can understand a player getting the yips…….
        But when a side can kick to each other fine but when its time to score?….?
        Umpires under much scrutiny!….. easy fixed it seems!… is it in the drink bottles?.?
        Pre game hypnotism?… Bookies direction!


  2. If I didn’t k ow any better I would say both teams should play deep into finals judging by this first quater. Great coach Brisbane finally have.

    1. If you ever want to watch a most amazing quarter, the lions second quarter was genius. I’m still scratching my head, I reckon dog’s coaches will be checking if hell has frozen over.


  6. This site is such a positive community offering fantastic advice, articles, insight & much more. You on the other hand offer absolutely nothing to this site. Nobody cares about your ‘conspiracy’ about umpires or betting markets or whatever you dribble on about that doesn’t even make sense. You aren’t winning anyone over with it & just makes you look petty. I also have no idea why you try to use the ANZACS as a point of argument. Idiot


  7. Bontempelli only scored 5 in that quarter, will need one of his famous finishes otherwise he’s headed for the fallen premiums

  9. Was hoping for more from Dahlhaus, but I’ll take 122, or whatever he scales to. Just not thrilled with the odds of anyone else doing better.


  10. On one hand that was a good effort by Bont to get to 84. His efficiency was really bad.
    On the other hand I’m apoplectic I chose to bring him in this week for OMeara…

    Brisbane are on the right track. They’ll win a few games this season off of their midfield alone.


  11. Eagle/ Assasins/ Adam.

    Have you ever got a T/U to any of your comments?

    Your SC team is going quite well, Why don’t you just keep your comments on SC related matters.

    For anything else maybe try AA or GA or NA or any old A.

    They may be able to help you.

    We here at SCT aren’t qualified I’m afraid.


    1. Ah yes i have
      Why are you so uncomfortable with my point of view that know one cares about but seemingly cant ignore.
      Just ignore it……….. why not? What makes you feel the need to shut my view down
      What are you afraid of????
      The truth???
