The only injury concern is Steven May after a touch hamstring niggle against Geelong Cats when he was substituted out of the match.
Western Bulldogs Form
They have had their justifiable share of knockers throughout the finals series (including me), but they keep arising with the products .
The Dogs beat Essendon within the Elimination Final and should have gotten lucky against the Brisbane Lions within the Semi-Final. But at the top of the day, a clutch goal from Bailey Smith showed us that he has what it takes to possibly take this side all the way.
It was just utter dominance from the get-go for the Bulldogs against Port Adelaide within the Preliminary Final, another game played against a volatile crowd which appeared to urge them on.

With no injury concerns last week, the Dogs have dilemma over who they have to drop from the Preliminary Final so as to bring back key defender Alex Keath and little forward Cody Weightman.
My Best Tip for the AFL Final is :
The little issue I even have is that come Grand Final day, the Demons will have played one match in 28 days. i'm an enormous believer in match fitness and therefore the Dogs make appeal therein respect.
The match will be close and i think is will be go over the 156 points line.
