Western Bulldogs utility Anthony Scott says the group is hopeful they can carry some momentum from last week’s win into their upcoming Saturday night blockbuster against Richmond.

Scott was solid in the round three triumph, registering 11 disposals and five marks against the Swans. 

He said the mood around the Club was more positive, as they rectified their disappointing opening fortnight.

“We had some tough competition in the first couple of rounds, so we really set our sights on getting one away against Sydney,” Scott told RSN on Wednesday morning.

“You can tell how much of a difference (a win) makes around the Club – we had the VFL side have a win as well, so the mood this week has been pretty good. We’re hoping to carry that forward now.

“Bevo was pretty strong on pushing a positive narrative out of the first two weeks. I just think we couldn’t put four-quarter performances together, and that’s really what was hurting us.

“There was enough to take out of those games though to have confidence that we were still fighting and fit.”

The Bulldogs will look to continue their winning form when they meet Richmond at the MCG this weekend.

Scott said there are plenty of lessons the group will take out from their round seven meeting last season.

“We obviously played them last year at the ‘G, and started well but fell away in the second half,” Scott recalled.

“I think it’s looking at what we did well last year to begin that game – we’re looking to play the ground well and shut down their weapons up forward, which is probably what hurt us last year.”

The Bulldogs and Tigers will face off at 7.25pm AEST on Saturday night.
