Western Bulldogs’ 2007 Fixture

November 1, 2006

I’ve just taken a look at the Dogs’ 2007 fixture, and I’ve got to say that it looks really, really good. Highlights for me include:

  • Only one game at both Adelaide (against the Crows) and Subiaco (against West Coast). Sure, it would’ve been even better if the games were against Port Adelaide and Fremantle, but you can’t have everything.
  • We only play Sydney once at a neutral ground. The Dogs haven’t played the SCG well, so I’m more than happy to give it a wide berth.
  • The only back-to-back interstate games we have are Brisbane at the Gabba followed by Fremantle in Darwin, which is then followed by the mid-season break.
  • Twelve games at Telstra Dome, including a run of six straight in July through to the first half of August.
  • We play Geelong twice at Telstra Dome again.
  • Four Friday night games, three of which are in a row, and five Saturday night games.

The only thing I’m a little disappointed in is that the last of our five fixtured games at the MCG is on the 1st July. It would’ve been nice to get a little more practice at the ‘G closer to the finals series, but it could be much, much worse — West Coast only play there once for the entire home and away season.
