Ooooh a big one for the Doggies this weekend. Everybody talking about em after last weekend’s surprise win against GWS. Saturday night in Adelaide against Port Adelaide. Just got back from the pub – and the tipping vibe is not good for the Bulldogs. Can they do it? Dunno, but this is when they typically shine – backs to the wall. There are some big games to look forward to this round. I reckon the Bombers & Cats, also on Saturday, could be a corker. Nth Melb & West Coast might be a surprise thriller for Sunday. Tonight’s game – Tigers & Freo – I’d like to think will be closer than pundits are currently tipping. But the Dockers are all-conquering at this stage, even though Richmond are on the march. Another riveting round  to come on this Queen’s Birthday long weekend (round 10). Congrats to Plugger Lockett – one of the great full-forwards of my life-time – inducted as a legend in the AFL Hall of Fame this week.

Fires out.
