GOLDEN Square’s Dale Lowry and Jordan Rosengren are the hard-luck selection stories ahead of Saturday’s Bendigo Football-Netball League grand final.
The Bulldogs made two changes to their winning preliminary final combination on Thursday night.
Into the side to take on Sandhurst at the Queen Elizabeth Oval on Saturday are Travis Baird and Ryan Colbert, with Bendigo Pioneer-listed Rosengren and Lowry, a three-time Bulldogs premiership player, the unlucky pair to make way.
Baird missed last week’s preliminary final win over Eaglehawk through illness, while Colbert – a mid-season inclusion – was a withdrawal with groin tightness.
While they won’t play in the seniors, Lowry and Rosengren will line up in the Bulldogs’ reserves team.
Sandhurst will take an unchanged line-up into the grand final from the team that destroyed the Bulldogs by 53 points in the second semi-final two weeks ago.
Such is the depth at the Dragons, there’s no room in the seniors for the likes of Harry O’Meara, Jake McLean, Galen Munari, Luke O’Sullivan and Seb Greene, who were all part of last year’s losing grand final team.
They will all be part of what’s an imposing reserves team that will also take on Golden Square.
