Bulldogs coach prefers MCG home final

If the Western Bulldogs earn another home final this season, its coach wants the game to be played at the MCG.

The Bulldogs were watched with interest on Sunday as they played away from Etihad Stadium for the first time this season. A 32-point win proved they were capable of the bigger dimensions.

Last year they were forced to play their home final against Adelaide at the MCG, despite club President Peter Gordon lobbying for the match to be played at Etihad.

However if the same situation arises this year, the MCG is the coaches choice.

‘I’m not that fussed, I don’t mind where it is,’ Beveridge told 3AW Sports Today.

‘My preference would probably be the MCG, because you do need to keep winning there if you are to ultimately win it. That’s my opinion as a coach.

‘Let’s hope we’re in that situation.’

AFL CEO Gillon McLachlan recently confirmed on AFL 360 if GWS earn a home final, it will be played at Spotless Stadium, which has a capacity of just 24,000.
