Western Bulldogs

Preview by: Anthony Wingard – @AntWingardFP

Undoubtedly the biggest surprise packet of 2015, the Western Bulldogs capped off a great year which saw them not only make finals, but building a list capable of bigger things in 2016 and beyond. The Bulldogs swooped on Matthew Suckling under free agency, hoping that his versatility at either end of the ground and premiership experience will benefit the club.

A cunning attempt to snag disgruntled ruckmen Matthew Lobbe fell through as they were unable to fix their most prominent weakness. Adding midfielder Josh Dunkley and key defender Kieran Collins at the draft also created depth in each area, both of which are bound to impact the club in the years to come.

Next season will be another stepping stone for the young pups, with an appearance late in September the ultimate, yet reachable goal.

Predicted Finish: 4th – 7th

    I think the dockers will fished maybe 3rd or 7th I think the dockers will have a good year but beyond that the dockers need a main gold to is to be at our best but the recruiting in the draft was very low dockers put less 10 years for players and dockers don’t do it enough but the will do ok
