Where and when: Marvel Stadium, Sunday, July 28, 1.10pm AEST
What it means for Western Bulldogs: A missed chance against St Kilda. It cannot happen again. The Dogs must come out all guns blazing against the Dockers to keep in touch with the finals hopefuls.
What it means for Fremantle: The Dockers have been disappointing over the last month or so, but last week’s win kept them in the finals race. An absolute must-win to keep the September dream alive.
The stat: If the Western Bulldogs’ big men maintain their 2019 average the club will finish the home and away season with an aggregate of 511 hitouts. Aaron Sandilands had nearly double that with 998 in 2015.
The match-up: Jason Johannisen v Michael Walters
The Official AFL Player Ratings have Johannisen and Walters as the 125th and the 30th ranked players in the competition this year. The pure speed and excitement these two bring should set Marvel Stadium alight.
It’s a big week for: Rhylee West
The young Bulldog makes his debut in front of a home crowd. With plenty of guns around him, it remains to be seen exactly how much midfield time he will play, but it’s sure to be an exciting day for West and Dogs fans.
Father Dougal’s Tip: Bulldogs by 6 points.
