Father son duo Tom Liberatore and Mitch Wallis look set to re-commit to the Bulldogs.
Wallis’ future at the dogs has been questioned all year with reports of Essendon and Brisbane wanting his services, whilst Liberatore spent the whole season recovering from an ACL which he sustained in round one.
Liberatore was once the best clearance player in the competition when things were going right for the Bulldogs, and was looking to be back at the top before being struck down in his first game of the year.
Wallis, who was dropped twice this year, had speculation about his playing future at the Bulldogs, but later in the year coach Luke Beveridge stated that the club had offered him a contract.
“There is, so we’re just working through that with his management,” Beveridge said in early August.
“Mitch Wallis is a prime example of a player we’ve had some conversations around what’s going to improve him as a player, and we know how capable he can be.”
With all this happening, it looks like Luke Dahlhaus will be departing the Bulldogs for Geelong, who are offering him a better deal. Jack Redpath and Jordan Roughead look on their way out of the club as well.
Forwards Billy Gowers and Tory Dickson are reported to stay but Lin Jong, Brad Lynch and Tom Campbell’s futures remain uncertain.
With a few premiership heros in Liam Picken and Tom Boyd set to return in 2019, Beveridge will lead his men into 2019 with excitement and belief which spectators saw none in the first half of this season.
