Game notes: The Bulldogs look to have finally got their groove back against Greater Western Sydney last week despite going down by two points. Luke Beveridge would have been pleased his side’s intensity around the ball was back to its ferocious best and ball movement from defence to attack is steadily improving. What would have frustrated him was the Dogs’ ongoing wayward kicking in front of goal, but if the premiers fix up that problem, Richmond might encounter a ‘perfect storm’ for the second week running. The Tigers went into the clash with Adelaide last week high on confidence and undefeated, but left with a 76-point drubbing and plenty of questions over their finals aspirations. The Crows blew them away with exquisite ball movement on a lightning fast Adelaide Oval deck – something the Dogs are capable of in the benign conditions of Etihad Stadium.

Father Dougal’s Tip: West Coast by 12

  4. I don’t wanna go full Eagle/Assassins on the umpires because I thought they were quite fair tonight…….but that last ‘deliberate’ call on Castagna? Gotta be kidding me………

      1. LOL……..I’m not too upset about it, we had our chances and the umpires had a good night…….but surely that was a throw-in?

    1. Yep agree – the umps also missed a clear throw that lead to Riewoldt’s goal at the end.

      Very happy to sneak that win after that ordinary first half.

      WFIW I still think the new interpretation of deliberate stinks, what was wrong with the rules last year? Why keep messing with the rules?

      1. Brereton actually suggested in the Suns/Cats game that players needed to ‘tune in’ to the way the umps were calling each game and not based on the previous week’s interpretations. Wasn’t sure if he was joking or just being Derm.
