The Western Bulldogs will ramp up their preseason preparations with a practice match against North Melbourne at VU Whitten Oval on Saturday afternoon.

The first bounce will be at 1pm, with gates open to the public from 12pm.

No tickets are required – but patrons aged 16 and over will need to show proof of double-vaccination and check in via the QR code.


Score updates for the match will also be available via @BulldogsW on Twitter.

The hit-out comes after the Bulldogs faced off in an intra-club match last weekend, with Rocky Cranston, Elle Bennetts, Amanda Ling and Aurora Smith all pulling on the red, white and blue for the first time.

The Bulldogs will confirm their playing squad on Thursday afternoon.
