Australian Football League Carlton Blues vs Western Bulldogs Live Stream Free, AFL 2018 Regular Seasons Week 22 AFL Live Stream. Carlton Blues vs Western Bulldogs match will be kickoff at Etihad Stadium, Melbourne, VIC, Australia, Sunday 19 August 2018 online, 13:10 pm (AEDT) and its broadcast on Channel Seven, Foxtell.
This is a match only hardcore footy fans and avid punters will be watching start to finish. Both the Dogs and the Blues have had disappointing seasons and will be looking for victories to take some confidence into the 2019 season.
Only two seasons after a grand final victory, I’m not going to sit here and call a 7-13 record a success for the Bulldogs, however, It’s a step in the right direction from where they were after Round 2.
The Dogs have made improvements, running over the Saints in the second half before a gritty seven-point victory against a North Melbourne side that had everything to play for. The Dogs should beat Carlton and win three consecutive games for the second time this season.
In a league that includes the Gold Coast, Carlton have been the worst team in the competition in 2018. The Blues hit rock bottom two weeks ago against the Giants, going down by 105 points with the Giants have no rotations and at times, having only 16 or 17 players on the ground.
The Blues put in an improved effort against the Dockers over at Optus Stadium on Sunday. Although it was a competitive effort, they never looked like getting the four points. The young bodies of the Blues look sore, which is a worrying sign for Brenton Bolton with two rounds to go.
Jacob Weitering will return for the Blues after sustaining a severely corked quad. Matthew Kreuzer will miss the remaining two games of the season after suffering another elevated heartbeat.
Easton Wood returns from a hamstring injury for the Dogs. Debutant Callum Porter has joined Lewis Young, Mitch Honeychurch, Patrick Lipinski, Fergus Greene, Brad Lynch, Tim English and Ling Jong on the extended bench.
