AFL Round 13 – Western Bulldogs Vs Collingwood

Ouch, we go down again by a skinny margin… While I didn’t expect to win this one ( I actually tipped against the boys), It annoys me that we were up by 25 ( again) and then got closed out and lost by 10 points. this could have been one of those unexpected wins that we all love so much. We need them to balance out all those ones that we are expected to win but ending up losing…. We did come close and who knows what might have happened if Anthony hadn’t had to stagger off.  Reid and Rocca out again to serious injuries. Any tall forwards anywhere?? This will cause another shuffle and place more Pressure on Travis Cloke. I hope young Trav is up to it now he’s back. At least we stopped the Bulldogs run of 100+ scores
