ContestedFooty’s start of the year preview
2nd-4th All the hype this year belongs to the Bulldogs this pre-season going by reports. The recruitment of Hall is seen by many to be the final step needed to become a likely flag candidate.
For me, the Bulldogs are right along the edge, with a reliance on the like of Johnson, Akermanis and now Hall in the forward half, it’s a bit worrying. Having said that, Johnson and Akermanis have been managed brilliantly.
The age of those players can be seen as a positive for this year in a way though. It could very well be their last chance for a chance at a flag with those 3 in the team, and the whole club will most likely know it.
