It’s a Grand Final re-match as the Bulldogs and Swans do battle at Etihad Stadium.

The Bulldogs will unfurl their second flag on Friday night, ahead of what should be a bumper clash.

The Swans will certainly have revenge on their minds. But it that wasn’t motivation enough, they’ll need to bounce back after being shown up by Port Adelaide at home in Round 1.
