Preview

Finally we get the re-match that we have all been waiting for. In last year’s preliminary final these sides played out arguably one of the best games of the year, let’s hope they get close to that again in this one.

The Western Bulldogs’ defence is their main area of concern. They will have a tough time stopping the likes of Patton, and Cameron. The Dogs’ back six will have to play well if their side is a chance of winning.

The Giants will have a point to prove after the heart break of last year. Expect them to come out firing, on what is their home away from home (UNSW Canberra Oval). The Dogs will put up a fight, but it won’t be enough.
