The familiar smell of jasmine in the Melbourne air usually means AFL finals are around the corner.

For the Bulldogs players up north, there might not be that traditional scent, but finals fever is well and truly in their conscious.

And what better three gentlemen to chat about the business end an AFL season than Bob Murphy, Marcus Bontempelli and Dale Morris.

Bob and Bont catch up for the 22nd episode of The Barkly Street podcast to discuss the build-up to Saturday’s Elimination Final clash with St Kilda, reflect on the career of Tory Dickson and recognise the Dogs’ three All-Australian representatives.

They also cover off the fitness of Aaron Naughton and Mitch Wallis, and give their take on the pre-finals bye week.

Premiership hero Morris jumps onto the Zoom call from Melbourne to talk about his year so far, which included being unfortunately stood down as a development coach role, before recently accepting a role in the Club’s commercial department.

‘Moz’ also outlines how he rediscovered his academic skills as a remote learning teacher, found time to sneak in the odd weights session in the home gym, how he misses playing footy, and the difficult process of retiring from the game at the highest level.
