Both Bunbury and Carey Park are proud football clubs — therefore it comes as no surprise that last weekend’s losses against Augusta-Margaret River and Donnybrook respectively were less than ideal. In treacherous conditions at Gloucester Park, the league-leading Bulldogs were restricted to a surprising 2.6 (18) in their 77-point defeat against the Hawks, despite having a solid complement of senior players in the team. One man who was not there on the day was Bulldogs coach Jamie Nani, who was in isolation due to COVID-19 health and safety protocols. Nani will return to the boundary line on Sunday and expects his side to recover from their hiccup on the road. “I was able to watch the replay of the Hawks game,” he said. “I do not cop a performance like that and will be keen for a quick response from our boys.” Panthers players also are unlikely to have fond memories of their outing against Donnybrook last Saturday, in which they kicked a forgettable 2.11 (23). Should Brett Maguire’s men cause an upset on Sunday, they will snap a losing streak at Payne Park which stretches back to July 26, 2015.
