Game notes: If the Western Bulldogs are going to get their shaky premiership defence back on track, they’re going to have to take down one of the contenders for their title. The Bulldogs (7-7) look a shadow of the side that stormed through September last year, having lost three of their past four games to slip to 10th on the ladder. The second-placed Crows (10-4) are by no means in blistering form themselves despite winning four of their past six. After a brilliant start to the season, opposition teams have pushed numbers behind the ball, stopping the Crows’ quick ball movement and preventing easy over-the-back goals. However, they were able to grind out a confidence boosting 12-point win against Carlton last weekend when the game wasn’t played on their terms. This looms as a season-defining game for the Bulldogs.
Thommo’s Tip: Adelaide by 12 points.
