THE TEAM NEWS

CARLTON

  • Carlton failed to make it three wins in a row as they were defeated by St. Kilda last week with that result seeing them fall to 2-3 for the season and they will need to show big improvements here as they face Western Bulldogs.
  • The Blues started slowly as they managed just 16 first half points and despite showing some good resilience in the second half, it was not enough to overhaul the Saints.
  • Despite last week’s defeat, the Blues have not hit the panic button and have made just one change to their side with Sam Philp dropping out for Matthew Kennedy.

WESTERN BULLDOGS

  • Western Bulldogs are improving at a rapid pace and they made it three successive victories last week to put their woes in the opening two rounds behind them as they moved to 3-2.
  • The Bulldogs were far too good for North Melbourne as they won all four quarters, limiting the Kangaroos to just 38 points while amassing 87 for themselves in the one-sided success.
  • The Bulldogs have been forced to make two changes for this week’s clash with Hayden Crozier copping a suspension while Lin Jong is injured so Lachie Hunter and Louis Butler come into the side.

THE PREDICTION

Carlton could not make it three wins in a row in their game last week but Western Bulldogs did exactly that. The Blues will now hope to bounce back here but they face a difficult task against the improving Bulldogs. With such a dominant display behind them in last week’s game, the Bulldogs will be very confident heading into this clash and they should be able to make it four consecutive victories.
