GWS-Bulldogs AFL prelim final snapshot

AAP logoAAP 24/09/2016 Emma Kemp


Result: Western Bulldogs 13.11 (89) bt Greater Western Sydney 12.11 (83) at Spotless Stadium.

Key moment: Marcus Bontempelli booted his only goal of the match to put the Bulldogs in front by a point halfway through the fourth quarter. From there his side never ceded the lead.

Tribunal: Nil.

Injuries: Jordan Roughead is in doubt for the grand final after the ball slammed into his face during the second quarter. Giants co-captain Callan Ward copped a sickening knee to the head. Neither returned to the field.

What's next: The Bulldogs will travel to the MCG to face the Sydney Swans next Saturday in a mouth-watering grand final - the Bulldogs' first since 1961.
