VFL Wrap: First Qualifying Final

Midfielder Mitch Honeychurch collected 32 disposals in a tough day for Footscray, as it went down to Casey by 70 points. 

The Bulldogs will face Essendon in the VFL semi-final next week.

However, there were some positives for the Dogs, with Declan Hamilton picking up 25 disposals and three goals. He is yet to make his senior debut after being drafted at No.39 in 2014. 

Former Brisbane Lions captain Jed Adcockhad 17 disposals and a goal. Adcock will retire at the end of this season.

The Bulldogs are set to face West Coast in Perth on Thursday night, and anyone backing up in that game after playing in the VFL would only have had a five-day break.



Declan Hamilton – 3 goals, 21 disposals, 7 marks

Jed Adcock – 1 goal, 21 disposals, 4 marks, 1 tackle

Lukas Webb – 1 goal, 28 disposals, 2 marks, 3 tackles

Mitch Honeychurch – 28 disposals, 5 marks, 4 tackles

Will Minson – 19 disposals, 7 marks, 2 tackles, 24 hit outs

Bailey Dale – 16 disposals, 2 marks, 1 tackle

Brad Lynch – 14 disposals, 2 marks, 1 tackle

Roarke Smith – 10 disposals, 3 marks
