GAME NOTES:
It’s going to be a massive afternoon for the Bulldogs, with the occasion just as important as the result. The premiers will unveil their new home away from home in Ballarat, Mars Stadium, while they’ll need to win if they want to play in September and defend their flag.ย  A wasteful performance in the loss to Greater Western Sydney last week will sting, but so will the loss of key forward Jack Redpath to suspension. Better use of the ball is what coach Luke Beveridge was asking for after the Dogs burned an abundance of chances against the Giants. The Power returned to the winners list week against Collingwood, but coach Ken Hinkley will be looking for more, if they’re to snatch an unlikely top-four spot. With Dogs’ backline undermanned, star forward Robbie Gray could provide the spark.

Schwarzwalder’s Tip: Dogs by 10 pts.

    1. Thanks everyone but I went with Bont when the survey results were 2 up to 3 down. Needless to say I’m regretting and paying for that decision.
