What it means for Western Bulldogs:
After knocking off the Cats, Luke Beveridge’s men sit at 7-8 and are still in striking distance of a finals spot. All this team needs is a sniff.
What it means for Melbourne: A chance to regain some respect. Sitting in 16th place, the Demons have won two out of their last three games and have a real shot at four points this week.

The stat: Aaron Naughton sits level with Richmond's Tom Lynch in first place in the competition for contested marks. The young forward has taken 33 for the season so far.
The match-up: Clayton Oliver v Jack Macrae
The Official AFL Player Ratings have Oliver and Macrae sixth and 10th-ranked players in the competition this year. Could we see the two ball magnets go head-to-head at Marvel Stadium?
It’s a big week for: Christian Petracca
The young Demon has hit form, averaging 20 disposals and 1.5 goals per game across the last eight matches. With Tom McDonald set to miss the rest of the season, Petracca will have to produce more as marking target.

Big call: Patrick Lipinski to get off the chain with 30 disposals and a goal, with Melbourne's midfield putting a defensive focus on the bigger names.
Prediction: Bulldogs by 15 points.

Boys it'll be a tough day at the office I suspect

Melbourne by 19 points. Finally get our game together and look like a side that ‘could’ be a finals contender next year. We play the Dome well and will find some form with Fritsch at half forward and a mid sized forward line.

I expect ANB and Petracca to kick 3 each whilst Salem controls half back. Gawn will monster their ruckman but it’ll be the dogs midfield that will cause us troubles to half time. Viney will be ineffective in a half before having a huge second.

Not feeling this one at all...

May to be fat, slow and stupid
Lever to do his knee
Frost to be a ******ed headless chook and kick the ball along the ground from a free kick twice
Salem to dislocate a finger tangled in his own back hair
Lewis to be slow, old and not good at the two things he was always good at: kicking and being hard (sniping blokes)
Chompers to kick 2.7
Petracca to be fat, unfocused and s**t (especially at set shots)
Preuss to kick 2.1 in the first and then set up camp behind the goal umpire for a 2 hour nap
Jones to be quiet, slow and have a couple of deer-in-the-headlights moments
Viney to be hard as fu**, but turn the ball over 278 times kicking into our forward 50
Oliver to get plenty of touches, but have no impact on the game
Kyle Dunkley what the fu** is a Kyle Dunkley?

I'm worried. The bookies have us @ $2,06. What are they smoking? We must be really good with them.
All I can think is they looked at a team that has struggled to score at all this year, and decided that with two key forwards out, this is obviously the day when we turn it around :drunk:
