Game Chat – Western Bulldogs vs GWS

Written by Thommo on August 11 2017

Venue: Etihad Stadium at 7:50pm AEST


R6, 2017, GWS 11.9 (75) d Western Bulldogs 9.19 (73) at Manuka Oval
1PF, 2016, Western Bulldogs 13.11 (89) d GWS 12.11 (83) at Spotless Stadium
R9, 2016, GWS 15.8 (98) d Western Bulldogs 10.13 (73) at Spotless Stadium
R9, 2015, Western Bulldogs 16.17 (113) d GWS 11.2 (68) at Etihad Stadium
R23, 2014, GWS 18.7 (115) d Western Bulldogs 15.19 (109) at Etihad Stadium

Game notes: Probably the match of the round, this clash between fierce adversaries has plenty riding on the outcome. The Giants returned to form by dismantling Melbourne, and in doing so, enhanced their chances of finishing in the top four after just recording one win in their previous five matches. The loss of Shane Mumford to suspension is big blow, but the return of star forward Toby Greene from a two-week ban is a huge inclusion. After a stuttering start to their premiership defence, the Bulldogs have finally found something close to their best form by winning four games on the trot. Needing to win at least two of their remaining three games to qualify for the finals, the Dogs are back to their manic best around the contest and have superstar Marcus Bontempelli back in devastating form. The match looms as another classic in the clubs’ growing rivalry.

Thommo’s Tip: Doggies by 11 points.

  4. Toby Greene with a ninja kick to D’Haus.

    Has to get 1-2 weeks, surely. Despite what Carey is saying, high, reckless, points blah points.


      1. Had a smile on my face when Greene put the leg up to take the mark , it’s been happening for years and i thought to myself they will want to give him weeks for this. It’s happened 20times this year and no one has worried too much about it , but Greene does it and causes a injury and they will try to give him weeks.


        1. Sorry sodes it wasn’t a mark it was a handball.
          And surely if the AFL is serious about the image of the game he has to be in trouble.


          1. Yeh mate a handball over the top, had no need to lift the leg so high , going to be another tricky one for MRP. The Bont tackled Ward perfectly there tonight, no injuries and no one said a word about it.


    1. Another contentious one for the MRP but seriously, who protects themself like that? He’ll get weeks…..


      1. If hawkins gets 3 down to 2 (extra for bad record)) for a soft punch surely a studs up kick from greene who always has a bad record is more than hawkins then….


      2. When fullbacks try taking grabs in rugby, they do that to protect the space, so Greene may have probably seen that and has decided to use it. It probably happens all the time and goes unnoticed, Jarrod Waite does it all the time and nothing happens. It just seems worse than it is because it is Greene, definitely wouldnt be the same if Bob Murphy did that


        1. At the end of the day though:

          a) Its not rugby and you cannot put another play in danger by placing your boot studs into there face.

          b) It is Toby Greene. Toby has made his own bed by all these previous actions and he now has to suffer the consequences of his stupidity. Bob murphy wouldn’t do reportable offences once let alone 3-4 times.

  7. A team manages 65 inside 50s, including 14 marks inside 50, and concedes just 34 themselves, yet they manage to kick just 57 points for the game.

    To which team am I referring?

    TU: Carlton
    TD: Western Bulldogs


  8. So Bont should be suspended for a week for that tackle in theory, but no one even noticed it because Ward got up and no concussion. I bet no one here saw it because I didn’t until it was brought up after the game.
    Same action as Grundy, different outcome in the tackle defines the suspension, what a rubbish MRP
