The Western Bulldogs and the Sydney Swans meet in a vital Round 4 clash at Etihad Stadium. Join The Roar for live scores and commentary from 4:35pm (AEDT).

Following a desperate victory against the wayward Bombers last week, the Bulldogs come to Etihad looking to topple one of the expected competition benchmarchs for 2018.

After the most appalling start to the season where their effort and application were seriously questioned, the club showed fighting spirit against Essendon, something that had been missing since their 2016 Premiership victory.

The key question for the Bulldogs this week will be whether the Dons were just that bad and a long way off the pace or whether they made significant improvements in their own game.

The Swans come off the back of a win against baby brother, GWS and will set their sights on a win here to launch their season, with only the loss to Port Adelaide in round two as a blip on the radar.

The loss of Sam Reid will place extra pressure on Buddy Franklin up fornt and the Bulldogs will need to have answers when the star of the competition attempts to impress himself on the game.

Prediction
The Bulldogs may have improved last week yet not enough to outscore the Swans who will romp home with a huge win.

Western Bulldogs 63, Sydney Swans 108
