Hope for the Dogs!

June 19, 2006

Since the last time I thought about the progress of the Dogs' season (which was just after our round nine loss to Collingwood in which we lost Bob Murphy to the Dogs' knee curse), things have gone a lot better than I had imagined. We've racked up wins against Hawthorn, Fremantle and Brisbane, despite Grant being our only regular tall option up forward. The wins weren't always convincing, but we've shown enough to score the four points, which is all that matters in the end.

We're now sitting fourth on the ladder, a position we'll still be in at the end of the round if Collingwood can get over Sydney. We have eight wins so far, and only need four more for the rest of the season to secure a berth in the finals. And if the Dogs can keep up the classy, gutsy performances, we'll do more than just make the finals.
