Wednesday night sees the start of 20 straight days of footy, kicking off with the Bulldogs hosting Richmond at Metricon Stadium.

The Dogs has won their last two matches and have an incredible record against Richmond, so as the outsiders in this match, they are tremendous value for a side that matches up well with them.

Richmond battled bravely against the Giants last week but ultimately fell short with such an undermanned line up.

Bulldogs Form & Team News

Going for three wins on the trot and a 5-1 record against Richmond from their last six clashes, the Dogs deserve to be the match favourites.

They held off the Suns late charge last week, almost coming undone to the skill of Izak Rankine, but proving that experience goes a long way in tight matches.

Richmond Form & Team News

Richmond seem to have lost a lot of their zest with some big outs in the side including Trent Cotchin, Dion Prestia, Shane Edwards and Bachar Houli.

Cotchin is expected to make his return to the side, as is solid defender David Astbury.

These two ins give the side a bit of core strength and of course leadership throughout the midfield which they are looking as if they need.

Bulldogs vs Richmond Match Up

The key match up for this match looks between Marcus Bontempelli and Shai Bolton.

Bontempelli has averaged 27 disposals, six clearances and a goal against the Tigers, so he clearly loves that match up.

Bolton has really sprung up this year as a strong player of the club, now having to play a full-time midfield role in the abcense of Dion Prestia.

If Bolton plays a shut down role on Bontempelli, they are not looking to win the game, more to stop Bontempelli from clearing the ball. If they take the brave approach and let Bolton play his game, he has the class to send the ball inside 50 to give his forwards many chances to score.
