    AFL TEAM | Round 6

    Western Bulldogs have named their side for our Round 6 clash in Ballarat.

    The Western Bulldogs will unleash their first debutant of season 2022 in Saturday’s Ballarat fixture against Adelaide.

    Mature-age recruit Robbie McComb will don the red, white and blue for the first time, given the nod after a dominant start to the VFL season for Footscray.

    The 26-year-old was selected at Pick 23 in the 2021 Rookie Draft, showing persistence pays off after spending four years on the Club’s VFL list.

    100 Games | Tim O'Brien

    Look back at Tim O'Brien's career to date before he plays his 100th game against Adelaide in Round 6.

    Published on

    A career-best season skyrocketed the proven ball-winner into AFL calculations, averaging 26 touches a game, winning the Footscray fairest and best and making the VFL Team of the Year.

    Veteran ruckman Stefan Martin will play his 200th game of AFL after being named to replace Tim English.

    The 35-year-old has played at both Melbourne and Brisbane previously to the Bulldogs, racking up nine games in his first season at Whitten Oval in 2021.

    AFL Report | Dogs fall short to Crows in Ballarat

    The Western Bulldogs have fallen agonisingly short to Adelaide at Mars Stadium in Ballarat.

    The Western Bulldogs have fallen agonisingly short to Adelaide at Mars Stadium in Ballarat.

    A frenetic final quarter saw the two sides exchange goals early, before back-to-back Bulldog majors through Josh Schache and Josh Dunkley saw them snatch a two-point lead.

    But 11 minutes left to play was more than enough time for the Crows to execute their comeback, producing the next four scoring opportunities to leave the hosts chasing a seven-point margin in the dying minutes.

    A captain’s goal from Marcus Bontempelli closed the gap to a single point, but with seven seconds left on the clock there was nothing else the Dogs could do in the 9.8 (62) to 8.15 (63) affair.

    A somewhat sluggish start saw the visitors control the opening 10 minutes, before the Bulldogs started to find their groove.

    Jamarra Ugle-Hagan kicked the Dogs’ first after a couple of early behinds, with Adam Treloar and Aaron Naughton contributing one each not long after to establish an early lead.

    The second quarter was more congested, as both sides wrestled for the footy with little reward on the scoreboard.

    The Bulldogs found a way forward in the third through Naughton and Schache, but still found themselves trailing by three at the final break.

    What ensued was a rollercoaster of emotions for Dogs’ fans, as they watched the Crows run away with the slimmest of margins.

    Tom Liberatore led the stats sheets with 33 disposals, nine tackles and 10 clearances, while Bailey Dale provided flair off the half-backline with 32 touches and 790 metres gained.  

    Josh Dunkley (28, 10 tackles, six clearances) and Bailey Smith (29, six inside 50s) contributed well in the midfield, supported by Jack Macrae (25, six clearances).

    Adam Treloar finished with two goals to his name, while Anthony Scott and Ryan Gardner impressed.

    The Bulldogs will next turn their attention to Essendon on Sunday 1 May at Marvel Stadium.
