Game Chat – Western Bulldogs v Port Adelaide

Written by Father Dougal on July 29 2018

WHERE AND WHEN: Mars Stadium, Sunday, July 29, 3.20pm AEST

SUMMARY
Everything seemed to be pointing towards a top-four finish a fortnight ago, but disappointing losses to Fremantle and Greater Western Sydney now have Port Adelaide just a game inside the top eight. Errant ball use has been the Power’s downfall of late, but if they can see off an early pressure onslaught from the young Bulldogs, Ken Hinkley’s men should find the going easier as the game progresses. One area of the game where the struggling Dogs could have an advantage is in the ruck, with the Power badly missing All Australian big man Paddy Ryder through injury. But if powerful forward Charlie Dixon continues his good form against the home side (18 goals from eight games), and gives Port some solid assistance in the ruck, the visitors should easily make it two wins from two appearances in Ballarat.

  1. No late changes for either side.

    Possibly the worst conditions for any game this year. Don’t expect high efficiency rates for this one!

  2. Regretting going O’Riordan (33 on field ) over Lienert. (nearly 50 at half time)

    What happened to the luck of the Irish?

  3. apart from McLean, i’d be happy to replace any of my other so-called premo FWDs with Ahern to season’s end.

    and slow down Crae-Crae, hoping to pick you up cheapish next week.

    1. Round 15? That’s when I brought him in – not thrilled so far…
      Worst part is one of the other guys I was looking at was Hawkins (who’s averaged 120+ over that same time frame).
