The opposition 

It's mostly been a year to forget for the Bulldogs, who went 0-8 to begin 2023 before picking up their first win of the season last weekend against the Eagles in Western Australia.

They managed to survive West Coast's fightback to claim an eight-point victory, with Ellie Blackburn (32 disposals, nine marks, 660 metres gained) leading the way.

Nathan Burke's side remains 18th on the ladder though, and are yet to overcome North Melbourne in three attempts.

The in-form Roo

Jasmine Garner

Following a quiet second-half - by her standards - against the Demons in Round 8, Garner was on a mission at Norwood Oval.

Although the four points slipped out of the side's grasp late against the Crows, the No.25's influence from start to finish was unmatched. She slotted two goals and won seven clearances from 27 disposals, while notching an equal game-high nine tackles on the defensive end.

She'll have the chance to put a stamp on another tremendous home and away season on Saturday, while potentially sealing up a third and second consecutive AFLCA AFLW Champion Player of the Year Award.

Last time we met

Western Bulldogs 4.4 (28) def. by North Melbourne Tasmanian Kangaroos 6.7 (43) - Round 5, Season 7 (2022)

The Roos had the task of trying to end the Bulldogs undefeated start to 2022's Season 7, after the side from Footscray picked up wins through each of their first four games.

In front of a capacity crowd at Punt Road Oval, Darren Crocker's side worked its way to a three-point half-time lead before breaking the game open in the second half to eventually claim victory.

Jasmine Garner claimed 10 coaches' votes after finishing with the game with 26 disposals, seven marks, eight clearances, and 537 metres gained, while Jenna Bruton (20 disposals, five clearances) also played a pivotal role in midfield.
