Preview

The Bulldogs have struggled more than most expected so far this year, with discussions this week about a possible ‘premiership hangover’. However, if you look a their results, they have lost some close games, to some great opposition and have been improving.

The Saints were disappointing last week against the Swans and their fans expect more from the young and talented outfit. They will have to face the Dogs without star Nick Riewoldt, who is expected to miss. This poses a big challenge to the younger generation of Saints.

The Bulldogs are too good to slip out of the eight and drop to 5-5. They should be fired up considering some of the criticism they have received this week, it could be another tough week to be a St Kilda supporter.

Tip: Saints by 32
