Full Dogs list to jet to Gold Coast on Monday


Western Bulldogs defender Easton Wood says the entire Western Bulldogs list will make the journey to the hub on the Gold Coast.

Speaking after the Bulldogs 49-point win over North Melbourne, the 2016 premiership captain told AFL Nation he'll also be taking his family to the sunshine state.

“We’re heading on Monday and as far as I know our whole group is going," he said.

“I’m going to take my wife and my daughter along up there with us and a few of the boys are bringing their family as well.

“There’ll be challenges there’s no doubt about that but I prefer to look at the opportunities and it can’t hurt getting some warm weather as well."

Wood said he is confident the playing group can continue to adapt to the changes.

“As we know this season is so strange but you’ve just got to keep adjusting as you go along and do the best you can and our group has pivoted and done that pretty well," he said.

“Everybody is contributing and having their moments in the game and that’s what makes us such a hard team to play against.

“It’s been a great 3 weeks, the boys have put together some momentum and I’m looking forward to the next game and the hub."

The 30-year old, who played only his second game of the season on Saturday night, said it was great to put his injury behind him and return to the field.

“It’s so nice to be back amongst the boys and the energy was good," he said.

“I played in round one but I feel like I haven’t played since last year."

The Bulldogs take on Carlton at Metricon Stadium next Sunday.
