Dogs midfielder Tom Liberatore was Dogs best on Saturday in Moe, grabbing 28 touches and 16 contested possessions, to go along with seven clearances, four tackles and four inside 50s.  All in all, a solid day out for the 25-year-old

The ninth overall pick in the 2017 NAB AFL Draft, Aaron Naughton had a team-high eight marks on Saturday afternoon, including seven intercept marks, pressing his case hard for a Round 1 debut.

Lin Jong reminded all and sundry what he was capable of in full flight after a quiet return from an ACL injury last weekend in Ballarat, kicking two goals, taking four marks and gathering 18 touches.  His third term was particularly impressive, where he led the team with seven pressure acts, four contested possessions and seven disposals at 100%.  Welcome back, Jongy.

Luke Dahlhaus led the Dogs with nine tackles, and added 20 touches, four clearances, five inside 50s and a goal.  It may have just been a pre-season game but there’s some encouraging numbers in there for Dogs fans.
