Carlton were oh so brave last week and while they lost, it might just be the making of the young Blues.
Two on the bench at the end, no Cripps and still fought to the death.
The Western Bulldogs used to do that, before they won a flag and now they show as much fight as Richmond when they play St Kilda.
The Dogs have got issues and that won’t be fixed in a week.
It requires some Bevo magic. Even he can’t weave the wand like that, at this stage.
Last year they hobbled into the eight, but fought their way there.
This year, they look like a team who has already booked their end of season trip, with the departure date, the Sunday night of round 23.
The forward line couldn’t kick a score if they got a head start. They’ve managed 81 points or less in eight of their last 10 games.
By comparison, Adelaide has scored 81 or less only twice this season!
Is Jake Stringer maybe injured, or just maybe overrated. I’ll leave that up to you.
No team in history has played that bad and won.
When the ‘ugly’ Swans won in 2005, they didn’t score a lot, but the other team invariably scored less.
Carlton will win, just because they’re playing with heart and spirit, which amazingly is what the Dogs played with last year.
Confidence is a big thing.
The Blues have it, even when they lose, the Dogs simply don’t have it.
Carlton at $2.55
Western Bulldogs at $1.52
Tip: Carlton at $2.55
Line tip: Carlton +12.5
