Western Bulldogs comfortably beat the Adelaide Crows 85-40 last week to make it five wins in a row in the AFL and the might take some stopping again in Darwin.

Head to Head

The Bulldogs have won the last four meetings between the pair, while they have won eight of the last 10.

Gold Coast Suns Form 

The Gold Coast Suns seem to have a real issue with finding a way to build on wins this season, with victories all too often followed by defeats. 

Their superb 113-43 win over the West Coast Eagles was quickly followed by a 107-64 defeat at the hands of the Brisbane Lions. 

The Suns have only managed to back up one win with another, with this coming when they beat the North Melbourne Kangaroos and the Richmond Tigers in late-April.

Gold Coast Suns Team News

Gold Coast have opted for Ben Long as a replacement for Sean Lemmens (hamstring).

Joel Jeffrey comes in for the dropped Brandon Ellis.

Western Bulldogs Form 

The Western Bulldogs have been in brilliant form of late, and they come into this one boasting a five-game winning run that has helped them move up to sixth on the ladder.

While there is still a lot of work to do, the Bulldogs look like they are clicking at the perfect time, with just one defeat and seven wins in their last eight. 

Away games have been fairly tight for the Dogs this year, and they have lost two of their six matches on the road.

Western Bulldogs Team News

The Western Bulldogs are without Jason Johannisen (hamstring). 

Adam Treloar (hamstring) is not risked and is likely to return next week.

B: T.Duryea, L.Jones, T.O’Brien
HB: B.Dale, R.Gardner, E.Richards
C: A.Scott, M.Bontempelli - C, B.Williams
HF: J.Macrae, A.Naughton, C.Daniel
F: C.Weightman, J.Ugle-Hagan, R.Lobb

I/C: J.O’Donnell, A.Jones, O.Baker, L.McNeil
EMG: L.Cleary, M.Hannan, J.Sweet, A.Keath


With the Suns struggling of late and the Dogs in good form, I am backing the Dogs to come away with the win in a tight clash.
