Western Bulldogs vs Carlton Blues Preview

The Dogs will be looking to get back to business this week after suffering their first loss of the season last Friday night against Richmond.

Luke Beveridge’s side looked home and hosed at one point before the Tigers flexed their muscle in the second half to win by 22 points.

Speaking of flexing, Carlton did just that in their 16-point win over the Bombers – a result that leaves the Blues within striking distance of the eight.

Unfortunately, the win was overshadowed though by Mitch McGovern’s hamstring injury that has ruled the half-forward out for the next few weeks.

The Dogs did a lot wrong in the final term last week against Richmond, largely due to the pressure the Tigers applied.

That said, the loss may be a blessing in disguise as the added pressure of an unbeaten start to the season is now over.

The Blues were impressive themselves in the fourth quarter last week, but this is a much different test against a serious flag contender.

With a key player missing the Dogs sporting a pretty convincing 5-3 record at the line on the back of a loss, it’s tough to fade the favourites.
