Preview

When push came to shove last week, the Bulldogs put their foot down and impressed a lot of people with their win against Sydney.

A lot of teams would’ve rolled over when Sydney staged their final quarter comeback but the Dogs showed why they’re the premiers, halting the Swans momentum thanks to match-winning plays from ‘The Bont’ and ‘The Package’ (Marcus Bontempelli and Jake Stringer).

The Dogs came away from that game unscathed and travel to Perth to face a Fremantle side reeling following an 89-point thumping at the hands of Port Adelaide last week.

Earlier this week, Ross Lyon said he has no hesitation in playing more kids this early in the season.

Harley Balic and Griffin Logue are two players with the potential to be handed their debuts come Saturday night. Sam Collins and Sean Darcy impressed in their respective hit-outs last weekend while Hayden Crozier and Tommy Sheridan are another pair in contention for a senior call-up.

As for the result, the Dogs should have no troubles running rings around a hapless Fremantle side whose fans are crying out for a bit of pride in the jumper.

Dogs by 65.
