Game Chat – Western Bulldogs vs Hawthorn

Written by Huttabito on July 7 2018

WHERE AND WHEN: Etihad Stadium, Saturday, July 7, 7.25pm AEST

Sitting out of the eight on percentage, this Saturday night encounter looms as a must-win danger game for Hawthorn, as a young Bulldogs outfit have found encouraging form over the past fortnight. The Hawks were disappointing in the loss to Greater Western Sydney last week, copping a hammering in contested possession and clearances. Tom Mitchell had another 50-possession game, and Dogs coach Luke Beveridge is likely to send in-form youngster Josh Dunkley to go head-to-head with the prolific midfielder. The Dogs have looked much better with the inclusion of key defenders Marcus Adams and Dale Morris, with the duo set to perform important roles on dangerous Hawk forwards Jarryd Roughead and Jack Gunston. Another interesting subplot will be how Tom Boyd fares in the ruck against twin towers Ben McEvoy and Jon Ceglar.

  2. Not really SC relevant…

    Bad luck for Conar Glass being a late out tonight, but best of luck to Jono O’Rourke… been solid at Box Hill on & off for 12 months! It’s been way too long, original top 10 pick from GWS if memory treats me right!


    1. Pretty sure he was pick 2 Catta. Questions over his professionalism so I’m surprised he hasn’t been delisted.


  3. Bulldogs fan so a little bias, anyone after a cash cow defender Brad Lynch is a very good option. 61 at half time and bevo loves him. Otherwise, a stressful game and bont needs to lift for my points!


  4. The Bulldogs have some seriously good kids, and a lot of them. However badly this year may have gone for them, I don’t think they’ll be at the tail end of the ladder for long.
