The Western Bulldogs 2016 AFL Footy Stamps are sure to delight footy fans and stamp collectors alike. Each pack contains 20 x $1 stamps and tabs, with the tabs featuring 20 players from the current Western Bulldogs squad.
Featured on the back of the pack is the full 2016 squad and some of the key milestones beckoning for some of the players.
After an ordinary 2014 season, the Western Bulldogs underwent a summer from hell before 2015, losing its captain, coach and CEO in less than happy circumstances. With the leadership group gutted, things got worse when reigning best and fairest Tom Liberatore suffered a season-ending knee injury in the year’s first NAB Challenge match. With such an awful off-season, it was little wonder that most predicted a dire year for the Dogs. But under the guidance of new coach Luke Beveridge and new captain Robert Murphy, the Dogs stunned all by transforming into a side that added attacking flair to the toughness instilled under previous coach Brendan McCartney. By season’s end the Dogs had won 14 matches and fell agonisingly short of the Crows in an elimination final described as the best match of the year.
The Bulldogs can expect to find the going tougher as the other sides pay their game closer attention. But with Liberatore returning to bolster an impressive midfield featuring Mitch Wallis, Marcus Bontempelli, Liam Picken and Jack Macrae, the Dogs will provide plenty of fodder for a forward line that features the star youngster Jake Stringer. Many of the Bulldogs’ 2015 attacking forays began down back, with Murphy and Easton Wood having seasons that saw them earn All-Australian status. Draft picks Kieran Collins and mature-aged Marcus Adams are set to join them in 2016 as taller defensive options. The Bulldogs’ obvious weakness is in the ruck, with Will Minson struggling to reproduce his 2013 All-Australian form.
