After winning a fairy-tale flag from seventh position in season 2016, Western Bulldogs suffered from the dreaded “premiership hangover” in 2017. With such a young squad, many thought the Dogs were at a start of a successful dynasty. That still may be case, but after missing the finals completely last year, the boys from the West will be looking to amend what they hope was an aberration in 2017 and once again go deep into September in 2018. It was in front of goal that really cost the Bulldogs last year. Finishing dead last in goal accuracy, kicking the ball through the big sticks will definitely be an area the boy from the West will want to improve upon. A big factor in that will be the forward line structure. After winning the flag with a small forward line, they now have the likes of Tom Boyd, new recruits Josh Schacke and Jackson Trengove plus Jack Redpath to form a functional front six. Whether the tall forward line structure is the way forward for the Dogs is up to coach Luke Beveridge but we know if the they can bring the heat and tackling pressure they did so well in 2016, they can again make a serious run for the 2018 premiership.
