The Sydney Swans will host the Western Bulldogs this weekend in an important clash between two sides that have won just one match in the last five years. In the third round, the Swans scored four goals and conceded just one. The Dogs have been dominated by the Sydney Roosters, winning the last three games in a row. The only match in which the Bulldogs have won is the grand final in 2016.
The Bulldogs have not had an easy start to their 2022 campaign. In their opening match, they were beaten by the defending premiers, the Demons. But in week two, they swept Carlton, a tough team. Despite the loss, the Bulldogs have been dominant in attack. With 34 goals from 95 inside 50s, they have been able to dominate the competition. They have also been able to replace Tom Hickey, who suffered a hamstring injury midway through the match.
The Sydney Swans have had a great start to their season, as they have been undefeated in the first two rounds. They have won nine of their first 11 games and have scored more points than any team so far this season. Their record against the Bulldogs is 7-1, with the Bulldogs winning the last match 79-60. While they have a poor record, they are still in good shape.
