R16, 2013, Essendon 18.13 (121) d Western Bulldogs 14.6 (90) at Etihad

Game notes: In arguably the match of the round, an in-form Essendon will be out to enhance its finals credentials while putting a huge dent in the Bulldogs’ premiership defence. With Bomber twin towers Joe Daniher and Cale Hooker looming large, the loss of All Australian defender Dale Morris to a broken arm couldn’t have come at a worse time for the Dogs, and young backmen Zaine Cordy and Lewis Young will face the sternest tests of their short careers. The Dons midfield has really got going in recent weeks, with skipper Dyson Heppell, young gun Zach Merrett and veteran Jobe Watson set for showdown with the handball-happy Dogs’ on-ball division lead by superstar Marcus Bontempelli. With the teams on nine wins apiece, this highly-anticipated encounter should reveal how well both sides are travelling just over a month out from September.

      1. Your not the only one Hutta!
        Thought I would have a quiet arvo at the movies expecting Merrett to at least match Dangerfield. I am still a chance to win most leagues but it should have been all over by now. In fact I need to win in Catt;a Challenge to make finals and that is now in big jeopardy.
        So much for Premo’s this year. Knowing my luck Rockliff will crack 150 and sink me totally.

  5. Bloody hell Merrett… I should have taken Dangerfield’s 108! Or given the captaincy to Bontempelli (which I did seriously consider). Oh well.
