The Dees hopes of heading into next Friday’s top of the table clash as the undefeated and undisputed May premiers were dashed on Saturday by a plucky Crow’s outfit and a courageous umpire.


Instead, it’s the Dogs who’ve ridden the wave of momentum all the way back to the top since rediscovering their mojo in Q4 against a hapless Blues, and the Dees are once again No.2.


And whilst the Dogs comprehensive victory over the Saints was little more than a training drill with witches hats, the fluidity on attack and commitment to defence was undeniable.


However, expect the Dees to turn up ready to go in the more comfortable surrounds of Melbourne, as while the Adelaide Oval isn’t for everyone, this year’s media darlings will be smarting from the defeat handed to them by last year’s wooden spooners.


With a week for Bevo’s brains trust to digest and analyze the information out of Adelaide, and in what shapes as an absorbing and energy sapping struggle in the guts, the Dogs should just be able to squeeze out a stubborn No.2 on Marvel Stadium.

This should be an absolute cracker. Dees defence is unbelievable, forward lines look pretty even, our mids bat deeper and stronger and then Gawn should be lauded as the undisputed best ruck in the league. Both these teams play honest, very tough footy - no GWS kicks in the face here. The best two teams and the most equal two teams I can remember facing off since the Hawthorn-Geelong era. Let’s hope the end result is as exciting as those games used to be .... and that we squeak home!

anything can happen, we can win by 5, 25 65 or 145 depends which bulldogs team turns up ;)
It's a bit more than that. We have to cope with whichever Dees team turns up, which has been consistently good this year so far. They will be hoping last week was an aberration. I'll be happy with a 5-point win.
