Bulldogs coach Luke Beveridge spoke pre-match on Fox Footy.
On the Hawks and this game being a danger game: “They’ve been impressive against the well credentialed and established sides up high. They’ve probably got an injury or two which they aren’t over the moon with, but like any other week, in this competition you can’t take anything for granted. Last week we played pretty well, but we didn’t defend well as a group.”
On defending the corridor: “As far as speed on offense, they’re ranked No.1, so we’ll have our work cut out if we turn the ball over in certain areas. We feel like we know what their intention will be … and we don’t usually come up against a team that we’re taller than. As far as the aerial battle goes, there are some opportunities, but they might see it as an advantage for them, the way they’ve picked their team.”
